Sending prayers

Today, I found out about a young couple's loss of their little boy yesterday.  I know the family a little, but can't even imagine how they must be feeling. I just have been teary eyed all day about it. I think in times like these, all we can do is really pray and pray hard for them. No words can express how sorry we feel and yet we struggle to even find words of comfort to send to them. I just realized some times the best thing really is prayer. Trusting our Heavenly Father to keep them in His arms during this time is what can give them peace, healing and comfort.
How grateful I am to know that God lives. I have watched throughout the years, many people who have had tremendous trials and hardships in their lives but never believed that there was anything or anyone out there to help them. They truly believed that this life is it, that there is no life after hope of ever seeing their loved ones again. How comforting it is, to know that there is a life after this, to know that we have a Heavenly Father who loves us and will take care of our loved ones until we can see them again. As one sweet Mom ( who lost a child also ) told me, "every day I get up and try to live my very best, so we will be able to see our sweet child again". Families can be forever, what comfort that knowledge brings.
My prayers go out to all who are struggling and hurting tonight, please know you are not alone!
Good night dear friends!

The Cord

We are connected,
My child and I, by
An invisible cord
Not seen by the eye.

It's not like the cord
That connects us 'til birth
This cord can't been seen
By any on Earth.

This cord does it's work
Right from the start.
It binds us together
Attached to my heart.

I know that it's there
Though no one can see
The invisible cord
From my child to me.

The strength of this cord
Is hard to describe.
It can't be destroyed
It can't be denied.

It's stronger than any cord
Man could create
It withstands the test
Can hold any weight.

And though you are gone,
Though you're not here with me,
The cord is still there
But no one can see.

It pulls at my heart
I am bruised...I am sore,
But this cord is my lifeline
As never before.

I am thankful that God
Connects us this way
A mother and child
Death can't take it away!

If Only

If only, my child, I could send,
A basket filled with love,
And pretty blue forget-me-not’s
To your new home above.

If only I could send a hug
Past every twinkling star,
And a suitcase filled with kisses
Up to heaven where you are.

If only I could rock you
As I did not long ago,
And sing you one more lullaby
Before you had to go.

If only’s fill my every thoughts
As my heart is aching for you.
With faith, I’ll wait until the time
“If only’s” all come true.

Eskimo Proverb

 "Perhaps they are not stars,
but rather openings in heaven
where the love of our lost ones
pours through and shines down upon us
to let us know they're happy."
