God knew 9 years ago...

I have been looking for a particular picture for over one and half years.

I found it tonight!!!

When we first moved to Guam almost 2 years ago, I was sad we had this grand new adventure and no Christian to share it with. It wasn't a large outward boohoo, but one of those small things in a deep corner of my heart.

It wasn't long before God reminded me of a whirlwind two day stay in Guam back in 2004...

Ritidian Beach... Only ONE picture... and it's of me... pregnant with Christian!



I can honestly say that ALL of my boys have been to Guam!

Thank you God for knowing 9 years ago that I needed this gift today.

Hi Marsha,

And God knew in October of 2011 that we'd lose our first born daughter, 17, to brain cancer the following March. He sent a friend who, out of the blue, offered to take our family photos in October. Those were our last pictures of us all together. In a month and a half it will be the one year anniversary of our Meredith's death. I can't wrap my mind around that. But I can wrap myself in His care.

Susan

Dear Susan,

I am so very sorry for your loss of Meredith. (((hugs))) I couldn't find a link to your email address so I'm hoping you will perhaps check back here in the comments one day.

Please know that I am praying for you and your family by name tonight. I am so thankful that God gave you that gift of the family picture.

May He continue to hold you close and comfort your heart on this grief journey.

Love in Christ,
Marsha

HI Marsha friend! I have been gone from blogger-land for several months, and wanted to drop in and say hello! Of course reading this made me cry, and I'm saying special prayers for you today! Hope you and your boys are well.
Love, Tasha
