a goodbye....

It's just plain hard to see them go!! But it has to take place! Children grow up into adults! Fact!! I'm especially moved with gratefulness to The Lord because for a time, a season, things were very tough in Daniels life. I didn't know what future he might have or if he would have one in this world. God has been so faithful to see Daniel through his depression and dark time that he walked through. For me, the mom, I was comparing that season that Daniel went through with Joel and his death and I have to say I felt more heartache with Daniel because I literally didn't know what to do except pray. With Joel it was over and I didn't necessarily have to "do" or "fix" something. It was done. So as we have come to the other side, we are very very grateful to The Lord and are super excited for so so many plans/opportunities that God is giving Daniel! Now, he lives passionately with lots of crazy ideas that he wants to do for The Lord! Some people are a bit skeptical! But hey, each one has a passion and his is music for Jesus!! I'm thrilled for him, his dreams his visions! So today, he is flying the skies back to Maryland to take on the world for Jesus!!

I can so relate to this post. As painful as it was/is to say goodbye to my sweet little girl, I never had to wonder how to help her. I have always had the sweet assurance that she is safe and happy in Jesus arms. But to watch our children suffer and struggle emotionally or spiritually leave us feeling helpless and inadequate. Praying God's Blessing upon Daniel as he moves on in life. I have no doubt that the Lord has used this painful experience to strengthen him.

God is faithful. Thank you for sharing. It is so hard at times with our older children. This week we leave for the beach. We will all be there (not sure if dh will be) except Mandi. Sometimes we are not all together till Christmas! Whew....

Praying for Daniel as he goes to Maryland. Praying for you too.

Love love love the pics.
