STARLIGHTS AGGIES 6th ANNUAL "LITTLE MONSTER'S 5K"
October 20, 2018
You have been in complete Glory with Jesus...infinitely Adoring Him, now for 9 months
It was so super early
You cannot see much in this pic, but it is ALL of the kids sleeping in the backseat
(Benny, Madison, Savannah, Nicholas, and Isaac)
GAMES AND FUN FOR THE FAMILIES
ISAAC WON THE CUTEST MONSTER COSTUME CONTEST
AN UNEXPECTED PICKUP GAME OF HACKIE-SAC FOOTBALL
So much joy mixed with tears as we celebrated as a family today
Everyone was laughing and playing
It warmed my "mama heart"
A paper butterfly was made for each sweet baby being honored
One of Madison's friends played the most beautiful song on her violin....it was a beautiful time of quiet reflection and prayer as the tears quietly rolled down my cheeks......though so painful, Jesus knows that we need these precious moments
I just miss her SO SO much Jesus
My heart brakes over and over and over again so often
I love to think about her. but it is way too much for me to take on alone, so Jesus continues to faithfully carry me through
I love You so much Jesus, with every fiber of my scrawny and weak little body
The kids with their butterflies
She was literally a butterfly
We prayed together as a family before we let our tiny butterflies go
We sang "You Are My Sunshine" around Isaac as he held his butterfly...and it just sat upon his finger so calmly until we ended our special song to Gracie Ann
And yes......God IS that amazing
THE DRIVE HOME
Seriously....3 of the 5 are sleeping again
Thank You Jesus
..... for these opportunities to think about and celebrate the life of our sweet little Gracie Ann
Even though, these celebrations are so painful because we all miss her so much.....I know Lord, that You use them to heal our wounded hearts and to yet again offer up this suffering back to You, as a special prayer.....as I know that You do not like to see Your children suffer.
It also gives us a chance to, again praise You.....our Mighty and Loving Creator for blessing us with our little Gracie Ann, and for then taking her back to be with You, safe and happy in Heaven
Help me through this life of exile Dear Jesus.....
Not to waste even one moment that I could use to serve You, to honor You, to bring others to You, and to grow in my love for You.
You deserve nothing short of total and complete Glory, each and every day of my life, each and every moment of my day, with each and every breath that I take
I love You and promise to ALWAYS love You through all of the joys that You bless me with, as well as all of the storms that You faithfully guide me through
JESUS, I TRUST IN YOU
