Today I have Hope. Today I have Peace. Today I am able to look forward and know that each day is bringing me closer to Heaven… closer to our Reunion. Today, Heaven doesn’t feel so far away. Today I can think of Elijah and smile through my tears. Today I can picture him in Heaven… I see him in my mom’s arms, sitting at the feet of Jesus… singing praises to our Lord. How beautiful it must be!
Today I am feeling incredibly blessed! It’s an amazing feeling really… to be so sad, to grieve so deeply… and then to have Jesus gently bring me back to a place where I can have joy in the midst of the pain. It is all Him. Jesus, He is the One. I have strength to go on… I know that no matter what tomorrow brings, no matter the hurt and tears… Jesus will always be there to gently guide me back to His arms. I don’t have to fear the future… and that takes away my fears today.
Everyday I have Jesus… And He will carry us… I know this to be true, because I see Him carrying others who have gone through much worse than us.
