I have been so incredibly blessed. Just over and over I am showered with the blessings of the people around me. They are being Christ’s hands and feet to me. I have meals for months, message after message after message encouraging me and holding me up. Cards up to the ceiling. People coming in just to keep me company, help me in any way I will let them 🙂 I never could have dreamed in a million years that people cared so much, had so much to give.
God has blessed me in numerous and vast ways.
I thank God most of all for my new perspective. I let my daughter wear high water pants today without a blink of an eye. If you know me, that’s big. HUGE.
For HOPE. That I will see my son again. Life passes in the blink of an eye. Our lifetimes are like grains of sand on the beach of the universe. I will see him and will know him and hold him again in heaven. I know that he is at complete peace and complete happiness in heaven. He gets to see God. Talk to God. Know God in a way none of us can. I’m jealous. Its that, “this is not goodbye its see you later” that IS HOPE.
I am blessed with a new community of women that embraced me, comforted me, loved on me, distracted me (in a good way). I believe Lucas whispered in God’s ear to send them to me. Before, Lucas was my human comfort. Now they are, amongst many others.
New life has been breathed into my marriage. We now lean on each other in a way that we never did before. We appreciate each other in a brand new way. Beauty has come from ashes.
I am blessed that I had a son like Lucas. That he is inspiring others, and it is my hope and fervent prayer that is spreads and spreads. That others may know his Jesus.
This is one of my favorite verses. Our pastor always ended the service with it.
“The Lord bless you
and keep you;
the Lord make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn his face toward you
and give you peace.”
Numbers 6: 24-26
