Oh God, You have given me so much . . .

Dear God,

I forget sometimes all the blessings you provide in my life. Food - in abundance, shelter - beautiful, comfortable, health, love . . . love. That one stops me in my busy life quite often through your gift of love to me, to our family - Jessie. When she was born, I overheard the doctors at the door discussing that she would need a total transfusion and I prayed to you, "Oh Lord - please don't let them be talking about my baby. Sadly, I hoped it was the woman in the next bed . . .… Continue

In a Beth Moore study, she spoke of her sense of helplessness in the face of her friend's child going to heaven. The Lord reminded her of His provision of Manna, in accordance to the need. Manna, Jesus, the Word made flesh, who offers manna that strengthens and sustains. . .but they had to go and get it.

Lamentations 3:22 - 24 "Through the Lord's mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. 'The Lord is my… Continue

You Lord most of all understand the loss of a son . . .

Blessed Father,

From the day each of my sons were born, they were precious to me, unique in all the world. And I've often thought if I had to sacrifice one, how would I choose? I'm thankful the answer to that dilemma has never been required of me. How much more painful when the choice is your ONLY son? How heavy was Abraham's heart as he trudged up the mountain to sacrifice Isaac? I know God, Your heart grieved the sacrifice of your only begotten - pure, holy, blessed. So I must believe… Continue

Lord, I know it's been a long time . . .

Dear Lord,

I know it's been a long time since we've talked. I know too, this is not the way two people communicate when they profess to love each other. You've been faithful, always there for me. I've never stopped loving you, but I haven't been showing it much lately. I'd ask "Can you ever forgive me?" but of course - I know you would. So, I'm here to say I love You. I miss the closeness we once shared when we talked daily. I want to give You the praise you deserve, but words seem… Continue

Well meaning but clueless...

So a stranger walks up to me who knows our story and says, "How is life WITHOUT your son. I am so sorry for your loss, I have three sons and can't imagine how you make it.' OK, first things first. I know what he means by "without" but to say that to a grieving father isnt something you ever want to say. I am not without, my son Josiah is very much a part of my present life, he surrounds us and is eternally "present" in Christ, not a "was" or "without". Sarah reminded me that Jesus is the One… Continue
