This song fits well into my life and I'm sure many other parents who are grieving. I know of many parents who are in horrible situations right now. Each of you are in my prayers... to the parents of the little boy who shot himself accidentally with his mother's service weapon... to the parents of the boy killed in Tyler today when hit on his bicycle by a car... to the momma and daddy who don't know what the next couple of weeks will bring for your sweet angel... my heart hurts for you.

This morning I have been feeling ill and trying to relax in bed some before our day gets busy. As I've sat here I read the blog a relative of a friend has began as she journeys through grief after losing her 20 year old son in a horrible accident. Loss and death aren't ever easy. I was reminded of my sweet baby boy and how much I miss him. I turned to my Bible for comfort and was going to look in the index for a passage... I opened it, and there, my fingers were where God wanted them. Already circled in my Bible were the words I needed to read.
1 Corinthians 15:58
"Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. "
To me, this is the Lord telling me that he knows I am in pain, but not to let this move my faith. He wants me to work for him, grow even closer, know his word inside and out. Lord I am willing. Lord move me!

|My sweet Jake is so very special to everyone!|
|I can't wait for Jake's headstone to be placed there for him.|
|Finally it was momma's turn to release the balloons I had chosen for Jake.|
|All of mommy's love floating to my angel in Heaven|

Everyone expects the best most of the time... no one thinks that any bad will ever come to them. It is with a sad heart that I say I am one of those people who is used to watching other people's misfortune and praising the Lord it wasn't me. I could pray for that person or family and volunteer to do whatever they may have needed. It wasn't until I began having a problematic abusive marriage and was hospitalized after my water broke early with Jake that I realized that sometimes expectations aren't met.
