Making Sense of the Pain
Happy Mother's Day
We are not forgotten, we are not being punished...we are blessed.
Parenting is Difficult, but Blessed
Motherhood is beautifully blessed, but not for the faint of heart. Motherhood is like living with your heart and soul outside of yourself in another person. It is the ultimate lesson of selflessness and servitude.
But the greatest of these is Love
Did you know that God did not choose the Father-Child relationship,
but CREATED it to represent the intimate connection he desires with us as his children?
The pure love we have for our kids is a constant reminder of the inescapable love our Father in Heaven has for us.
The Gift of Time
"And now I will show you the most excellent way"
Life is War
I want to share with you a lesson the Lord taught me during my last Christmas Season with my daughter Claire.
Heaven Day #2: All in His plan
Life is war. We are all battling an enemy, fighting for the next moment, and trying to gain a victory.
20 Months & 17 Days: The Tipping Point
May is such a beautiful month. The birds are chirping, the flowers blooming, trees are sprouting, and little creatures are coming out to warm themselves in the sun. God’s beauty is on full display around us, and I am thankful for the reminder of his goodness.
2016. A Year to Trust
wish that today was just the third day of February, but for Jordan and I it is much more. Today marks 20 months and 17 days since Claire departed from us. Today we have lived the same amount of time with her as we have without her. Tomorrow, I will have spent more seconds, minutes, hours, and days of my life grieving Claire than I did holding her. My mind struggles to comprehend the fact that I spend a much greater portion of my life remembering her than I did creating memories with her.
Last year was not easy, and I do not believe I fully got a handle on it. Therefore, I am not sure that I am ready for 2016 or if I ever would be. To be honest, control is something I struggle with. I know it belongs solely to God, but I try to hang on to it.
