6 Years ago today I was getting my hair all done up, perfecting my make-up, and putting on a beautiful white dress to walk down the aisle to my life long partner, Ryan. I can honestly say that never in a million years did I think that we would be celebrating our 6 year anniversary in a church, for a wake for one of our little girls.
None of us have a magic crystal ball that we can look into and see the path the Lord will take us on….we can’t tell the Lord what we can handle and what we can’t. He gets to decide that for us. The one thing we do know is that if we truly place our faith and trust in Him, He will see us through til the end. If you would have told me even a year ago, after having experienced the love of being a mom, that I would lose my little girl at just a little over a month old, I would think there’s no way I can do it. Not me Lord.
We’ve had so many people tell us they could have never done this journey the way Ryan and I did..and I just respond, you could of, Jesus see’s you through. You’ll never know if you can do it until you have to, and truly experience the love of others and of God to see you through every step of the way. With that being said though, you have to know this Jesus to truly experience His love. You have to have a personal relationship with him that goes beyond rituals and religion. You have to rely on him for every breath and every move. You have to give thanks in all circumstances and truly believe He is good…all the time.
So many of you probably know this Jesus I am talking about, but others might be wondering who He is…how they can know him in this way. Throughout Juliets life I have had to tell myself Lord, she is yours. If you can just bring one precious person to know you better, then her life will not be in vain. It made it easier for me to give her back to Him knowing the bigger purpose she was serving. To glorify God and ultimately bring people to know him better.
I’m pretty sure the next few weeks/months?? this lady is going to be taking some good “couch” time and adjusting to the new normal. With that being said I’ll have a lot of free time on my hands. Time that I’d love to chat/answer/be there for anyone that wants to know Jesus in a personal way. Anyone that’s been trying to find peace but just hasn’t gotten there yet. I have been so blessed by the prayer warriors that have gotten us through this time that I’d love to repay the favor for anyone else that needs it. So, if you wanna take me up on it, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to get my number so we can chat:)
Thanks in advance to the so many people that are going to celebrate Jules’ life with us, and the so many that made me realize her purpose here on this earth. To bring others to Jesus and spread pure love:)
