Friday Praise & Prayers

{and last day to be entered in the give-a-way – I’ll announce winners on Monday}

When Jason & I went to The Respite Retreat last February, we met 12 other parents that had also said good-bye to one {or two} of their children. We have put together a list of all of our children’s birthdays & their deathdays. It has been such a source of help to all of us to be able to remember these days with one another. To say our children’s names. To remember stories that were shared. The month of December is filled with several days we will remember. I will be praying for these families {and others that have had much loss}. One of the mother’s from our weekend, Terri, wrote recently that someone told her that we haven’t “lost our children – we know right where they are”…

…I love that.

What comfort that brings me.

To know where Lulu is today.

I will take time to praise God for what this month is really all about.

{It is almost His birthday – what are your plans to celebrate Him?}

What are your prayers & praises for today?
