SOMEONE OUGHT TO REMEMBER:)


Yesterday was baby Joel's first birthday in heaven... Actually he probably had been gone for a couple of weeks, but yesterday a year ago was the day he was born... We will see his birth mother and family tomorrow... we are excited about that.
Remembering the precious creation that God made in Joel... remembering his short life...ULTIMATELY REMEMBERING THAT GOD IS IN CONTROL AND MAKES NO MISTAKES! REMEMBERING THAT HE LOVES US DEEPLY NO MATTER HOW WE MAY BE FEELING, HOW BLEAK THINGS MIGHT LOOK AT TIMES, HOW FAR AWAY IT MAY FEEL LIKE HE IS, OR HOW CRAZY OUR CIRCUMSTANCES MIGHT SEEM.
GOD IS GOOD AND FAITHFUL THROUGH IT ALL!

Sara,
Just stopping by from Corie's blog....it is nice to meet you. You have such a precious family. Seems we have a bit in common...I am the mommy to 6 precious ones. Our 4th son, Joshua, went home to be with the Lord in 2002....so I certainly understand your post, "someone ought to remember." I am so sorry for your loss and the pain.

We have 4 boys and a little girl to love on each day. We also are a homeschooling family.

May God encourage and comfort your heart today as you remember Joel.

Amen to God's faithfulness. You have a beautiful family and love your blog.

Have a blessed 4th of July.

In Christ,
Stacy
