For All My BLM Friends!!!

We don't understand why God does the things He does but He knows the plans for our lives. I am just trusting and believing in His plan although its not the plan that you or I would have wanted for our lives. He is still an on time God!!!
I must admit I don't understand
Why God would let me face this painful circumstance.
All I have to cling to is His Word and His Name
But that's enough so I will trust

...It's For My Good and for His Glory
This trial's not the end of the story
There's a bigger picture
God alone can see.

Faith will take me through this sorrow
For I know He holds tomorrow
And He assures me it's for my good
And for His glory.

I love the Lord and He has promised me
To work all things for good; through my tears I believe
That His ways are higher than any of my own
And though my heart aches He makes no mistakes.

Though I would not have chosen the suffering that has come
I'm willing now to say, "Lord, not my will but thine be done."

God's Grace!!!

Have you ever wondered how you have made it as far as you have? I am here to tell you that it is only by the Grace of God. I know when I wanted to give up, He was there to carry me, lift me, hold me, hug me, and MOST OF ALL LOVE ME!!!! Even when I wasn't worthy of His love, He still loved me. Losing a child is one of the hardest things a parent will ever have to go through. People sometimes ask how do you make it? Like my title says GOD'S GRACE!!! It takes Him to make you stronger and while you walk, He is holding your hand, telling you I am here for you!!! I am praying for all BLMs. Hope you guys have a BLESSED week!!!

To All My BLM Friends- Happy Mother's Day From Heaven!!!

I found this poem today and wanted to share it with all of the BLMs. I know how hard it is going to be without your Angels but I know that our Angels are in Heaven looking down on us!!! They are with us every step we take. Hope you guys have the best Mother's Day that you can possibly have during this hard time in your life!!! Love you all!!!

A Mother’s Day Wish From Heaven
Dear Mr. Hallmark,
I am writing to you from heaven, and though it must appear
A rather strange idea, I see everything from here.
I just popped in to visit, your stores to find a card
A card of love for my mother, as this day for her is hard.
There must be some mistake I thought, every card you could imagine
Except I could not find a card, from a child who lives in heaven.
She is still a mother too, no matter where I reside
I had to leave, she understands, but oh the tears she’s cried.
I thought that if I wrote you, that you would come to know
that though I live in heaven now, I still love my mother so.
She talks with me, and dreams with me; we still share laughter too,
Memories our way of speaking now, would you see what you could do?
My mother carries me in her heart, her tears she hides from sight.
She writes poems to honor me, sometimes far into the night
She plants flowers in my garden, there my living memory dwells
She writes to other grieving parents, trying to ease their pain as well.
So you see Mr. Hallmark, though I no longer live on earth
I must find a way, to remind her of her wondrous worth
She needs to be honored, and remembered too
Just as the children of earth will do.
Thank you Mr. Hallmark, I know you’ll do your best
I have done all I can do; to you I’ll leave the rest.
Find a way to tell her, how much she means to me
Until I can do it for myself, when she joins me in eternity.
