simple says it all

Sometimes it's hard being a mommy.

This evening, I began to thank God for our meal of Hot Pockets for Austin and a PB&J for myself.

"Dear God,
Thank you for this food that we are about to eat. Thank you for always taking care of us. Please be with David and Noah on their trip and bring them back safely tomorrow..."


With his eyes shut tight and a cry in his voice, Austin fervently jumped in...

"...and please give Christian a hug and kiss from me!"

:(

All I could add was:

"In Jesus' name we pray... AMEN."

Sometimes simple says it all.

We just miss him.

Oh, my. I can't even imagine your pain, Marsha. You know you're in my heart and in my prayers. Thank God you will be seeing that sweet baby again. Our pastor was talking today about how our life here is but just a moment. When we look back when we are in our real home-our heavenly home-this will all seem like just a blip on the screen! Amazing and comforting that you will see your little one again soon and be together. :) Thank God for the hope we have in Him!!

God bless you, my friend! You know I love ya!!!! ~ Julie

I cried for my Anna tonight...I miss her being near. I miss her even hiding out in her room. I miss her fighting with me and then jumping in my lap a few hours later in her silly non-apology apology way. I cried til I shook today. Everyone is asleep and I'm sitting here wishing there was someone I could talk to. Someone who wouldn't tell me I needed to get out more...needed something different to think about. I need someone to say it's ok to cry. Someone to tell me that there's hope that one day she'll come back home and be my best friend again.

I miss her so.

I'm convinced that these prayers are granted. It would be too unlike Him to refuse.

Marshy,
I love you so much! I am truly amazed at how God has comforted you and carried you through! You have been such an encouragement to me! I think it would be so cool if we got to meet someday... before Heaven! :)
P.S.
I loved the Lucky Charm experiment!!!

That one choked me up but good! All I can say is that we are praying for y'all and sending HUGE ((((((HUGS)))))) your way. And I agree with Steve, I'm sure God answers these prayers, especially from our children. I often pray them myself. Love ya girl! - Deedee

Simple does say it all. The prayers of children are so heartfelt and honest. Just talking to God.

The way it should be.

Much love to you today!

I have prayed that prayer too. I can only believe it is done just as we asked.

Hugs to you and your family.

It breaks my heart to hear how badly your boys miss their brother. I wish my kids could appreciate each other. They really don't realize how blessed they are.

Your family is in my prayers.

Marsh, you should submit this picture to iheartfaces this week. The theme is "blue", and those are the most beautiful blue eyes I have ever seen. :) I miss him for you too...I know the ache, but also the hope we have of seeing them again. You're in my prayers today...all of you.

Debbie said...

Huggies Huggies and more Huggies...I miss y'all and I've been craving one of those never-ending-hangy-on Austin hugs for a while! I love you.

Andrea said...

Thanks for the cry; the perspective; I've had my daily attitude adjustment ...thank you.

Christine said...

I love you Marshy! Give Austin a big hug and kiss from his Eemo!

P.S. I didn't know that Noah went on the trip with David.

Tracy said...

Love that image!!!! With those eyes...you should have known he was a angel, just visiting! :)

Karin Katherine said...

Oh Marsha. I cannot imagine. As strange as it may sound to you, my dear friend whom I have yet to hug in person, I think about Christian all the time. That little boy has touched some lives! I will do the Christian 'shroom classic video for you this week. We've been eye balling some good ones throughout our neighborhood.
