Thou Art God....

Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting, thou art God. Ps. 90:2

Thou art God.......who gave us Joel

Thou art God......
who took Joel

Thou art God......who formed and weaved him together

Thou art God......when our days were sunshine

Thou art God.....when our sunshine turned to midnight

Thou art God......when I was so angry with you

Thou art God.....when I can bow to your will and say thank you

Thou art God......when I miss him so, my heart feels it might burst

Thou art God.....who fills the depth of sorrow with joys and anticipations that lie ahead

Thou art God.....who is my shield when the enemy speaks of death and hopelessness

Thou art God.....who speaks words of truth about the resurrection and that Joel is living with you

Thou art God.....who gives me grace to continue on with my family here and in the now

Thou art God.....who prompts a 5 yr. olds heart to bring me flowers

Thou art God.....who has blessed me with a 2 year old that says "I wuv you."

Thou art God.....and I can worship you and see your infinite wisdom in a flower and a bumble bee

Thou art God!!!!!!!

Great post, Cindy.

We've just walked through the Valley of the Shadow of Death with our friends who lost their only daughter of 34 years, to a viral infection that attacked her heart.

This post could have been written by them. I spoke to them of Joel as they were faced with removing life support or not. They were told she was brain dead when she wasn't. They made the same decision y'all did because God is the giver of life and he is the one who determines the time to die. I know that others who are associated with the SAICFF where Joel's Journey was shown, spoke to them of Joel and your family as well.

I just wanted to let you know that Joel is still being used by God. His fruits are many. To God be the glory!

Thou Art God. As the previous commenter said, "Beautifully Said."

On a lighter note, and because I want others to know of your blog and be blessed by your family, I'm tagging you : ) The rules are on our website.

In Him,
Recording the Faithfulness and Provision of God for Future Generations
