Perhaps you read the story of Lauren Scruggs, 24. She is the model and fashion blogger who walked into the propeller of a small plane on the runway. Because of this accident, she lost her left eye and left hand. You would think this event might make her bitter, but she told Savannah Guthrie on the "Today Show," "…emotionally, days are hard sometimes—just accepting the loss of my eye and hand, but it just gets better. I realize God's in control of my life and there's a purpose…Spiritually I learned to live by faith, not sight."
