I got flowers today.
They are beautiful. A sweet reminder from those who remember. A reminder that she is not forgotten. A gift to show their love, for us, for our baby girl, for a God who is sovereign even in times when we do not understand.
2 years ago this coming Wednesday, September 22nd, we said goodbye to our precious baby girl. A sudden departure, but not out of Gods hands...He had a plan. Although we are still hurt and grieving, we have the Hope that comes only from knowing Him. We will see her again.
I have had sudden stirrings of tears these past few days. It brings me more joy and happiness then I can say when others remember and speak of my beautiful daughter. Though she is gone...she was here. Though she is absent from us...she is present in many hearts and minds. Though she is missed for a time....she will be enjoyed and cherished forever. For I know, I will spend forever with my baby girl.
I got flowers today...and I am thankful.
Lord, come quickly.
