Lost but not forsaken.

I ask all my friends to forgive me at the moment, because I feel so lost.
I seem to forget much of what I am suppose to do.

My daughter Daniella and her daughter Shiarn have been staying over and keeping me company.
In Daniella's Bible she carries photos of her children.
It made me feel so sad to see a picture of her third son Matteo, who only lived nine days.
He died on  Christmas eve, 1998.
What a hard time, on a holiday season,  to say goodbye to a little one.
Today as we sat and talked I asked her what became of his ashes??
"They are in the top of my wardrobe mum," she told me.
"One day they'll be buried with me."

She spoke so naturally.... Oh how my heart went out to her.
As a mother, I want to protect her from hurts.
I think of the many times she has moved house, and how often she must lovingly secured those remains..
She always remembers him and keeps him close.
Just as our Heaven Father does with all of us.

"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, 
neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,  
neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, 
will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Romans 8:38-39

  6. I know the joy of holiday to be taken within the news of tragedy...my oldest son was killed 12-18-1996 ..he was laid to rest in some of his "Christmas" gifts...new shirt, new jeans and new boots! It will be 15 years this coming December...as the Lord has carried me I know he carries your daughter,Daniella's. We serve an awesome God. Our boys R.I.P. in the hands of our God.

  9. Hi Crystal,
    I can't even imagine how your daughter must have felt...and it pains a mother to see her child have a loss...Your daughter sounds so strong. I don't know why this had to happen to her, but I admire her so much for creating happiness in her life...that is a testament to the human spirit.
