Jeremiah 29:11

Posted by:

As the anniversary of your death comes quicker each year, I stare inside my soul and ask myself is it well within me? Or has your departure from this world made an incredible difference in the person I was chosen to be. I can without hesitation say there shall be no weight of grief reuniting or trying to imprison me!

Living without my Son is the most difficult thing God has ever asked of me and had it not been for ...

Matthew 6:20

Posted by:

Another Mother’s Day has come and vanished but I still feel the joy of everything you are with me. I think that’s the one thing the cruelty of death cannot steal, the joy of knowing you!

I have heard it said that “death leaves a memory that no one can steal” and I can shout out a big amen to that testimonial. I love Heaven for so many reasons. It is the one place that bible says your treasure is forever ...

He is my greatest hope!

Posted by:

I’ve been thinking a lot about my Friend who lost her young son 8 months ago. It always troubles my heart to know another Mommy suffers. I wish we never had to say goodbye for the simple reason that the wait is so long until we embrace them again, nonetheless I know we move onward in sweet expectations for that day!

There is so much joy in the knowledge that this is not where we hopelessly stay. If my life had ...

Changing the way I think

Posted by:

I haven’t written on Daniel’s site for a while I have been busy. The only question that matters past that is was I reaching for His kingdom living my life for His glory. The honest answer is not really. I spent 99 percent more motivation on petty-mindedness.

I hate when I let myself get pulled into the abyss of selfishness. I find myself just sitting without direction wandering in my own attention span of zilch watching TV and seriously what ...

He is my life’s Righteousness

Posted by:

I wish bad things didn’t happen to caring and compassionate people, but they do! We live in a world ready to justify the suffering of another by totally disregarding their afflictions because that’s what you do when you choose not to notice, you’ve already rationalised their consequence and are all right with it.

Well that’s not me you say, and you might already be convincing yourself that under no circumstances would you look the other way! But I have ...

His Grace Finds Me

Posted by:

When Daniel died I felt deep, unfathomable loss and a grief that overwhelmed me but I didn’t stay there and people have asked me why. I thought I would take this day to try and pen my peace.

I don’t spend much time in tears at all, I would have to say the only day I feel a drop forming is the day he died. In that quiet moment I feel the regret for moments lost trying to overpower me but ...

Things I’ve Learned :)

Posted by:

You can’t do this on Your Own – When I was sinking in the cost of losing my son, God rained down His mercies drowning me in a new hope unseen by material eyes. We put so much into what we have here and what we think is ours, but God gave us everything! God is not some mean guy up in the sky wanting to see us suffer by ripping our lives apart. He is a ...

His Purpose

Posted by:

What is death but the opposite of life here? The people that we miss in death are absolutely the fortunate ones, they don’t miss us. I listened to the song by Glen Campbell “I’m not going to miss you” a song he wrote because he has Alzheimer’s and it hit me, death only hurts the people left behind the people trying to find a reason why?

As we try and go forward without their attendance in our lives, their attendance ...

Oh How I Love Him

Posted by:

I have been thinking a lot about my friend who lost her son heartbreakingly. And I wonder what human words are there that help to rebuild a family when grief is like a lion that grabs hold of the gazelle and rips into its flesh with no regard for the soul it devours, but unlike the gazelle the agony of that moment never ends.

I wish with all my heart our best intended words healed, but they don’t. Oh they can ...

Let the Light In

Posted by:

We live in a world so broken by hopelessness that sometimes people feel death is the only escape from the aching that echoes within their soul. I know that hopeless feeling because I too have been in a pit so deep all I could welcome was the darkness. When we get ourselves that far down in the dark we lose the strength to dig up! Our only hope is when someone lets the Light in.

When you really think about ...
