Romans 3:23

Posted by:

I was taking to my Friend today and we were reminiscing on our earlier days together when within me I started to weep. My Friend has cancer and I cannot fathom my earthly journey without his input. Yes that’s my Friend he always has a response to my unending, trivial chatter and I wonder if he knows that in my life he cannot be repeated! My Friend has always been there for me and though he acts so unaffected by ...

Hebrews 9:27

Posted by:

I went to visit a friend yesterday that has been living with cancer. As I was talking with him the factuality of how undeniably one-sided life can be at times grasped my heart and I could not contain my tears for I barely can fathom life without him. But the bible says “it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.’ We are all going to leave this world and most people say the only ...

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 ...
