"I know the plans I have for you" declares the Lord, "Plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
I can honestly say that I am thankful for what has come in the wake of our heartache. A stronger marriage, a more compassionate heart and being more thankful than ever for EVERYTHING about my precious girl that I would taken for granted.
So this Christmas will be worlds different than last year. Last year we were experiencing the biggest "first" that all of you know of that have lost someone you love. The first Christmas, where we were supposed to have 3 stockings instead of 2. And this year we were experience a "first" in a while new way and we are so thankful.
This post maybe all over the place, but I just wanted all the mommas out there to know that it will get better. God is in control and he does have a perfect plan for each of our lives, even if we don't understand it now. Please be patient and allow Him to work in your life and then.... and only then true JOY can be experienced!
"So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy." John 16:22
