A Memory that will be there forever...
This weekend, I cherish a special place in my soul, my heart, and my memory...
15 years ago, the Lord placed in my arms, TWO very special gifts.
The same in every way. Two baby boys born the same day.
within the same hour, and with the same purpose.
To bring me closer to my Lord and Savior.
The Same God that gave me those beautiful, identical twin boys, is now holding them in Heaven,, Safe in His Care.
He took them home that day. My heart was wrenched in two the moment I knew they were not mine to raise.
My trust in God's perfect plan was reminding me of the reason,
but my mother's heart ached an empty cavern for the little babies that we washed so tenderly, and had to say good-bye to.
There are many that have a deep crevice of loss on their heart. It may be the loss of a baby, or a spouse, a child or someone close.
The Lord Heals.
He promises us that He will never leave us not forsake us.
Cast your cares on Him.. for He cares for you... I know this.. He tells us in His Word, and He has.
It was a beautiful gift that the Lord in Heaven gave Dan and I when we held our dear and precious boys.
There hands so tiny.. their little faces resembling what we see each time we have had another baby. Looking just like our other children.
The moments in time like these... are frozen for the memory becomes so strong in our hearts.
Purposely preserved for the comfort of our empty arms.
There is healing in time... in the Lord.
I do not wallow in grief,, I do not drown in sadness.
Just the opposite.. now.. not then...
I praise the ONE who gave my boys their lives..
and gave them to me.
15 years of boyhood would be to their gain today...
but rather my loss is my Heavenly Father's great gain.
They can spend their time in worship to Him,
and I will praise Him for the time I had to carry them, hold them, and breathe sweet mothers words into their ears.
I love the Lord my God with all my heart, and all my soul, and with all my strength.
Remembering every tiny detail of my Luke and Aaron.
15 years this weekend.. I handed them back to the One who let me have a forever memory embedded in my mother's heart.
