Time

Summer is ending and we begin a new season. I love the Fall season; leaves changing colors and falling, fires, warm food, football, windows open. Time is a funny thing. I have continually been encouraged by God's promises over the last several months that He alone brings healing. Just as He promises in Psalms 23, He maketh me to lie down in green pastures, He leadeth me beside still waters, He restores my soul! My only goal since finding out about Elias condition was that I wanted God's Holy name to be glorified. I wanted to hold on to His promises and allow God to be the one directing our way. He has been carrying me, and continues to carry me as I hold on to His promises and allow God to be the one directing our way. He is leading me through His word on a journey of grief and sorrow that only He can bring me through.
I enjoy blogging, I love reading others blog. So many blogs have brought me so much encouragement and inspiration that I might have missed if it was not for the blogging world. Because of other life events I am feeling that blogging should not be on the top of my priority list. Its been nice to share where I am at and how I am feeling so that people who I see and talk to regularly know where I am. I love sharing about my kids and how they are growing or what our family has been up to. Really that is the reason I started our blog is to share about our families happenings way before we even thought of Ella or Elias. It was a way to share with friends that have moved and family who was not close by. I felt like I needed to share where I am at with this blogging stuff. Hoping anyone who might still be reading will understand.
Today is the 18th of the month, 7 months without our sweet sweet baby. Good has come but the best will be when I hold him again.
Everything Has Its Time
"To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven:
A time to be born
and a time to die;
A time to plant,
and a time to pluck what is planted;
A time to kill,
And a time to heal;
A time to break down,
And a time to build up;
A time to weep,
And a time to laugh;
A time to mourn,
And a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones,
And a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace,
And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to gain,
And a time to lose;
A time to keep,
And a time to throw away;
A time to tear,
And a time to sew;
A time to keep silence,
And a time to speak;
A time to love,
And a time to hate;
A time of war,
And a time of peace.
~Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
I will leave you with this song because I hope all of you have made the same choice. Trust in Jesus!!!
