I just don't know.

you keep coming here, probably to check to see how we're doing. i don't check my stats really ever, but i was curious. and it lifted my spirit, for this moment in time.

for an update? a story? reassurance? i don't know why i come here sometimes.

the update? we'll be okay.

the story? my father-in-law passed away of natural causes. his body was tired and his soul was weary. but we believe that his body has been made new and his soul is dancing before Jesus. there will always be a void in my husband's life, in our lives, because he is gone. BUT WE BELIEVE. we believe that the Bible is the word of God, and that God is who He says He is, and when we add 1 + 1, we get eternity. it's just that simple.

reassurance? we'll be okay. we have to. WE HAVE TO.

because we have a daughter joining our family sometime in the next 10-ish weeks and we just have to be okay. she will help us be okay.

i believe that God is who He says He is. i believe that he heals our broken hearts and makes it possible for us to press on each day, putting one foot in front of the other. i believe that He gives strength to the weary, and i'm praying each moment of each day that He is giving strength to my husband.

So sorry for your family's loss, especially Aaron losing his Father just as he is about to become one himself! I'm sure you guys are holding each other and will get through each new day together....I'm glad you're allowing yourselves to grieve and trusting in your Heavenly Father and His promises. Love you lots and can't wait to see that baby girl!

Love,
Missy

you are a strong, courageous, tender & loving wife, mother, woman & daughter of the King. my heart aches, breaks & cries for you, Aaron & Tiny Dancer. I know that God is good, all the time. That "This too shall pass". Love you girl, take care of yourself.

Believing doesn't make it easy, just gives us a reason to hope, and an assurance of what is to come.
I'm still here, sure has been a rocky road to August, hasn't it? God's peace to you my friend.

Wrap yourselves in that strength. That and the love you have for each other and your little one will help each day a little bit easier. Sorry again for your loss...it's a pain I know all too well. Hugs to you both.

I am so sorry for your loss. My father died several years ago and it's such a difficult thing to go through as an adult.

Sending you prayers and hugs. PS - Love the blog name since Cline is my maiden name!
