He.   Was.   Innocent.

I don't think my human mind can fully grasp that thought.  He did nothing wrong, but He was crucified.  The most horrible death mankind can create.

He.   Was.  And IS.   God.  And He did This For ME.

My heart cannot find enough gratitude to praise Him for all He is worthy of.  But I will try!

One Last Month

We are just one month away from the birthday ... and death ... of our sweet Audrey.  I am simply amazed at what has transpired over the past 11 months, and what could be added this month to commemorate the year following the biggest and hardest blessing of my life.

Audrey changed my world in her Four-Day lifetime.

Audrey touched so many people...every 2 pounds & 2 ounces of her!

Audrey's time here left me with a greater desire to know Him more.

Audrey Ann can see Jesus!

I have found myself feeling a little more like "me" over the past several months, and I know that is best.  I will miss Audrey and long to hold her for as long as I am on earth and separated from her.  And regardless of the time that passes, those "hard days" will always sneak up on me.  After all, visiting your child's grave is never easy, but it is somehow comforting knowing that she is being cared for better than I ever could.  I also believe God wants me to be happy regardless of the path He has for my life.  It has been hard as similarities of this time of year have reminded me of last year, but I hope my memories of Audrey always point me to the need I have to lean on Jesus.

  1. I have found a friend in Jesus, He’s everything to me,
    He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul;
    The Lily of the Valley, in Him alone I see
    All I need to cleanse and make me fully whole.
    In sorrow He’s my comfort, in trouble He’s my stay;
    He tells me every care on Him to roll.
    • He’s the Lily of the Valley, the Bright and Morning Star,
      He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.
  2. He all my grief has taken, and all my sorrows borne;
    In temptation He’s my strong and mighty tow’r;
    I have all for Him forsaken, and all my idols torn
    From my heart and now He keeps me by His pow’r.
    Though all the world forsake me, and Satan tempt me sore,
    Through Jesus I shall safely reach the goal.
  3. He will never, never leave me, nor yet forsake me here,
    While I live by faith and do His blessed will;
    A wall of fire about me, I’ve nothing now to fear,
    From His manna He my hungry soul shall fill.
    Then sweeping up to glory to see His blessed face,
    Where rivers of delight shall ever roll.

Spring is Coming!
