Fussy babies, too much laundry...a slidshow of images of my baby girl gone.
Much tears and wiping of the nose.
Oh how I miss her. I was reaching out to the screen trying to touch her cheek and I just lost it...
So many good days in a row it was bound to happen. What makes it worse is what I can't remember. Her smell. Her voice, her laugh, how she felt when I picked her up.
Life is long without her...and I am weak and tired today. She is so beautiful...
God has comforted us greatly. Some days I forget what it is like to hurt like this...other days, it is all to easy to remember.
I sent a verse to a friend this morning because she was hurting as well and I thought it might be of some comfort.
I am still confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the LORD
in the land of the living.
Wait for the LORD;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the LORD.
I could do to be reminded of this today...be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.
The first time I remember reading this verse is because it was given to me by a friend who herself had memorized it in hard times. She passed this verse off to me, along with others, when I was in college and needed some comfort. God was faithful to His word then...I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD
He will not let me down.
Still, some days it just hurts to be here.
As much as it hurts...I am certain this is right where God wants me...
