What a stressful morning. I wake up, early, like before one of the girls is up. This is rare. I start my computer routine and see a message from one of Jake’s cousins. He informs me that www.livlife.us has been hacked. WHAT? I scurry over to the website and sure enough everything is gone and all I see is a white screen with some text at the top. The text said something like “hacked by ???XXX???, shout out to blahblah so and so.” My heart, ONCE AGAIN, is in my stink’n throat. Are you kidding me? My mind starts racing thinking really mean and cruel thoughts of “who in their right bleepbleepbleep mind has the time, energy, or desire to do something like this?
I think it’s pretty obvious what the website is about. I mean, the front page says “Join in the fight to save Liv’s life.” UUUGGGGGHHHH…….I just want to scream. I’m so mad, sad, and hurt by this. I don’t think I’ve cried this hard in a long time. Fast forward through the morning. >facebook post about the website, comments of encouragement, me calling sis, mom, dad, Jake to vent and cry, receiving phone calls from caring friends, grammy, and aunt. Sending emails to web pro’s that I know, crying, crying, crying. PAUSE. PLAY. Website is back up. My head is pounding, my eyes are throbbing and puffy. I should be resting. What I’ve learned from this: change my passwords, some people just don’t care, prayers do get answered, I have a lot of people that are on my side, I’m not going to EVER get defeated like this again. I seriously was beat down by this. The website is our one arm that we can reach out into this world. How can someone just take that away from us? Well, for a brief moment in this day it was taken away. It rocked my world, but, it’s back. Good ALWAYS defeats evil. So, in the face of a moment like this (if a moment like this ever happens again) I will choose to take a deep breath, find out my options and not jump to conclusions, and not be afraid to ask for help.
My ever~loving grandma sent this to me after our phone conversation. She received an email from one of her friends that had this verse in it. She said that she received that email for a reason and the reason was to pass it on to me. This is what it said~
Jeremiah 29:11 “for I know the plans I have for YOU, declares the LORD
“Never give the devil a ride, he will want to take over the driving.”
