Everlasting Joy

Posted by:

I was in my car on the way to work about a month after Daniel had died and I was dreadfully unhappy! I was bawling and insistent with God that I just could not survive this life without my son. I was unhappy that God being God had the right to see Daniel at any moment and I had no choice! As I was sobbing and pressing in with God, God spoke into my heart and it changed me ...

Worth It All

Posted by:

I got a text from a friend the other day that someone he respected lost their battle with cancer and when I read those words it brought a wee Daniel tug to my heart! I am not the same as I once was and maybe that’s my message! I have often sat and wondered why such a kind and compassionate child as mine? Although I have yet to ask God why; I do sometimes feel it one-sided as He ...

Christmas Hope

Posted by:

As I anticipate the arrival of my Daughter tomorrow morning I can’t help but think about the son who will not walk through my door. It’s always with a mixed amount of emotions that I answer that door. Family Christmas has a different face now that Daniel isn’t here anymore. I can’t say that I’m sad no it’s not quite like that it’s more like I’m missing a piece of my heart. You know the piece that keeps the blood ...

Jesus Wept

Posted by:

A short scripture verse has stayed with me for a lot of years, the verse “Jesus wept,” from John 11:35. Those who know the scriptures will know that this two word sentence/verse is in the story of Lazarus who had died and was dead four days already by the time Jesus showed up. Mary and Martha and their brother Lazarus, who had just died, were special friends of Jesus; it is for this reason no one was really surprised when ...

So I have been having back/chest pain for about 3 days and yesterday when I was working the pain increased. I thought I could just work through the discomfort and ignore the pain but it just became too much of a concern. So the great news is it was only a muscle spasm in my left shoulder that to me mimicked a heart attack. The bad news is and this is really illogical, why did I wait convinced I could ...

Is God Real?

Posted by:

Before I believed and accepted Jesus Christ as my lord and saviour, (long
form of “born again”) I questioned the legitimacy of God. What I saw was
people who attended church and yet were no different or better in human
terms than I was. I would hear some tell dirty jokes or use the Lord’s
name in vain and made the logical assumption that if they are saved and
there really is a God then when I die He will ...

Jesus still saves

Posted by:

Had the Grandkids this weekend, what a blessing in my life. We have so much fun together and their lives bring me so much joy. Someone asked me if having Hayden and Ethan helps with the loss of Daniel. I can honestly say that it doesn’t. It does not make the loss of my own sweet boy any less intolerable! It resides in my heart; day-to-day the longing, the missing and the truth of the cost!

There is a truth in ...

Created in Christ Jesus

Posted by:

Yesterday I went to the watch my Grandson’s hockey game. I find it an absolute thrill to sit in the stands with my dearly loved Daughter and watch him skate. Children are a gift of God and Grandchildren are an extent of His pure kindnesses in my life. My heart can barely contain my gratitude for all the extras God has given me. What a joy to be his Grandma!

Well as I was watching his game two young ...

Mother’s Love

Posted by:

Ever wondered, at the love of a mom
Its limits, its reach, where it comes from
The depth, the height, the evidence so plain
Given, not earned, perfected and sane

Now consider our God, big “G” not small
He is the very essence of love, for the world, yes all
He sent His only Son, to redeem us from ourselves
Giving a gift unearned, into our hearts He delves

Those who know Him, accepted by faith ...

God so loved

Posted by:

I have been thinking a lot lately about the loss of my son and just how much his leaving has left me missing. I miss his smile, I miss his laughter but mostly I miss all the happiness he brought into my life here. See being here isn’t as deeply enjoyable as it used to be as I sometimes feel the aching of the difference I now remember.

But I know God’s got a marvelous plan and what He allows ...
