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 ...

To My Daughter

Posted by:

Sometimes when I’m sleeping my children are the pictures in my dreams. And I truly don’t think that a parent ever stops balancing their lives within their own no matter how many years have gone by. Last night I was rereading the chapters in my Little Girl’s life and I knew sometimes my importance was not always a magnificent one, if I could I would rewrite her book.

As I write these words there will be some that cling ...

Love is kind

Posted by:

There is so much babble that is rampant in our world today and it’s getting increasingly difficult not to be discouraged by it. We absolutely cannot let ourselves be measured by the worth in the messages that this world sends out, there just clanging cymbals of noise! Never have I heard the word love thrown around so easily and without a price. Real love serves and costs you everything! Measure the power of your words by this truth and then ...

Are You Ready?

Posted by:

Today I’ve been thinking about Daniel’s last words the night before he died. That he said he “was ready to meet Jesus” and I guarantee he never knew it would be the next day, nonetheless he was ready! And if we look at the outward condition of our lives we are left disappointed for we judge by things, but God looks at the heart and not the shortcomings of our best efforts! I can barely comprehend why I do the ...

Our hope is in Him

Posted by:

It still seems so unconceivable that you’re just not here on this earth anymore and that you are never going to walk through Mom’s door again. It’s been 6 years today but it feels like yesterday I was pleading with God to let you stay. I miss your unmistakeable joy and your beautiful smile. I miss every second that you were here with me for I carry within me the incredible cost of your absence and just how undeniably missed ...

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 ...
