mother's day

So tomorrow is yet another special day that will remind us all over again of what has been lost. I will be glad when this first year is over. It’s like you can almost touch what happened last year…but yet it is so, so far away….

I am clinging to the promise of Psalm 91:4:

“He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.”

This verse paints a lovely picture of God acting as a mother would…protecting her helpless children…giving her very life for them.

It is actually in times such as these that I realize the power of the love that our Father has for me. I have come to the end of myself, and I find the very heart of God…

Lord, I’m trusting your promise…be a father… a mother…to all children, everywhere, who need you,

I started reading your blog and couldn't stop. Many of the verses and songs you listed were some of my favorites. Just a few months ago, I sang "Press On" in church and quoted the same exact verse before I sang it.
Your faith is so strong, even though you feel weak at times. My sister was sick from about September 1983 and not diagnosed until March 1984. She passed away early January 1985. Although there were several months after the diagnosis, I always believed somehow that she would be healed. Donna did not want to talk about the possibility of death. Surprise, huh...duh...Like you, I never really got to say all the things I wanted to her..Somehow I think Kathy and Donna both knew how much we loved and adored them. Whenever we visited them, gave them cards, or whatever. Gayla, They knew and felt our love.
You are a special lady and I'm sure an unbelievable sister. Thanks for sharing your blog. As with your CaringBridge posts, you touch my heart. Thanks. Again, our love and prayers will be with you and your family,
