Stumbled upon this site at about the right time. Buried my husband's great nephew ....he died just 2 days before his 23rd birthday. Have known him since before his birth. Fact is I knew his daddy since he was a wee boy......Circumstances make his death appear "unusual" tho we haven't recieved the autopsy results yet....... Guess I'm in the "I'm so mad I could......" stage. Ideas?
My heart bleeds for the father tht lost his two sons in a car accident. It's been close to 40 years for me now an while the pain never ever goes completely away, I have found peace knowing my daughter is with our Lord Jesus Christ. She was only 5 months 2 days old when she passed. We were on our way to church when we ran in the river and the car overturned. For years I grieved over the little things such as never hearing her call me Mama or get any of the sticky sweet kisses. The worst part for me was the fact that I never saw her take her first baby steps. I don't know why that bothered me more than anything else but it did. A few years ago, I was at the place where I thought I was going crazy. After all, it HAD been a long time ago. One night in church, my pastor's wife interrupted his sermon... which was very unusual....so unusual I have never known it to happn before. This dear sister stood up and said she felt God was trying to tell someone something. I sat back down on the pew with the thought (negative of course) "sure, after all this time, can't be for me, etc). No sooner had the thoughts passed through my mind than than it was like I was having a little glimpse into Heaven. Out of nowhere I saw this litle girl...couldn't see her face but I knew instantly it was my daughter. I can't begin to say how long this lasted. All I can say is this little girl of mine......by the Grace of God.. took three little baby footsteps..... Left.... right.... left...... I had not known she had been left handed.... I will say our service that night was different than ever before. I can't thank God enough for allowing me that timy glimpse into Heaven and allowing me to see those three baby footsteps..... I so long to see her again..... but am now willing to wait until my time comes..... Don't give up, my friends, God's timing is not necessarily our timing...... Trust Him. He knows what you are going through..... Trust Him to lead you into acceptance thru His Will.... I'm no a preacher but I do know when I turn everything over to Him, things go a lot smoother! God bless you all.
