blessed are those...

The Lord has given me a great promise (see 'jubilee' post) that Brooke will one day be back home with us. as a mother, I yearn for that day! this morning when I woke my heart was heavy for this promise. I have learned to be content in my present circumstance (Phil 4:11). however, there are some days the tears flow and the longing awakens something within me. today, was no of those days.

I love the unique gift of friendships! The Lord knows what we need and when we need it. when a friend prays for you on your behalf when words can't seem to escape your mind....there have been those times when friends reach the throne of God to help in the time of need. The Lord has special ways to comfort our weary hearts.

coupled with that, it's sweet when complete strangers approach you too. this afternoon a lady at SAMs asked me what my necklace said. I said "a mother knows the words that her child cannot say". after I told her that my daughter had autism, she said.... "I'm gonna pray for you, because that's what it is about, that's how we do things."

I smiled and told her thank you. I was so thankful that thru our small conversation The Lord comforted my heart.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they WILL be comforted. Matthew 5:4

are you weary and mourning today? He is faithful in His love and will comfort you in due time.

You are (even in your weakest moments) a pinnacle of strength and an encouragement to many because of your faithfulness to Jesus as you profess His faithfulness to you :) thank you for fighting the fight and for sharing your journey. You take that which satan intends to destroy you with and you, instead, crush His head with your steadfast faithfulness to Jesus. The joy of the Lord is truly your strength! Brooke is one lucky girl to have such a mama that fights for her ;) I love you.
