Still in Rememberance.....



Remembering mine affliction and my misery, the wormwood and the gall. My soul hath them still in rememberance...Lamentations 3:19-20



January 3, 2007...... a happy 3 year old with energy, laughs, hugs, affections in spite of the dreadful disease that was raging within his little body.........a little after midnight....... his smile, his hugs, his sweet voice, bright eyes.........all gone!!!!!! As I held him in my arms before the dark hour struck and he slipped into the sleep of a coma, his last words, "what's that beepin?" January 4, 2007....... non responsive, his eyes forever closed to this life, wires, machines, tubes........I will never forget...... I am without words, but not without pain!!!!



These are our last precious pictures of Joel at his farm that he loved so much......

Mrs. Morris,

My heart aches for you and your family. I know how much it can hurt and the pain seems to never go away. It amazes me how close our stories are. My Mom's last day talking was January 1st and then passed away on the 5th. Those were some of the hardest days. :( Recently a friend sent me this verse and it's really been a comfort to me. Psalm 61:2 "From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I."

Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers a lot!

Much Love,
Danielle

Cindy, I am continuing to pray for you. Sometimes it will not let me post.... but I come and read.

My heart hurts for you. I can not imagine. Remember I lost my dad suddenly in July. I know it is totally different.... but I find myself looking at his pictures and just wanting him... back. HUGS~ I know he is with the Lord and I am so thankful for that peace... but my heart aches for him.

When you share about Joel... my heart aches for you. I know the other children are such a help and comfort...

I thank you for sharing your heart with us in blogland. I have the dvd you sent and I will always cherish Joel's Journey. I remember being here last year as it was happening and asking so many to pray....

may it help to know that others are still praying and haven't forgotten.

grace & peace,

Cindy, you can have faith in God's promise of healing and the resurrection...that you will see and embrace your precious Joel again, his health restored...and in a world far better than this one.
