this awesome story posted by gellie. I wish I had that shirt, haha.
On Tuesday morning she was driving to work when her arm started to hurt. The pain got worse, so much so that she decided to drive to her husband’s work instead, and asked him to take her to the hospital. When she got to the hospital they hooked her heart up to a machine that helped it keep pumping (i’m blanking on the actual name of these), and began to see what was wrong with her arm. Less than 20 minutes later, her heart completely failed, but she was ok because of the machine she was hooked up to. As it turned out, her arm pain had absolutely nothing to do with her heart, but if her arm hadn’t started hurting, she would have still been out on the road driving when her heart failed.
Within a few days she was miraculously back to complete health, enough to take her daughter to the Switchfoot concert on Friday (this was the 11.16 concert in Bethlehem, PA). She enjoyed the show, but was the most blown away afterwards when she went to the merch table where she saw the shirt that said: “I want to know that my heart’s still beating.”
the first part was so amazing because it showed how God protects us by making certain things happen ( in this case making the lady’s arm hurt so that she would go to the hospital). and the end bit showing how a switchfoot tee with a lyric on it can mean so much to a person.
