One Year Ago...

sticky post...scroll down for current posts!

One year ago today, we laid our son Gus before the Lord. We miss him terribly...I especially miss snuggling his little body against mine and smelling his neck...gee, this list of things I miss could go on and on.

Though he is no longer with us physically, we know that he is with the Lord and is healed. We know that he knows us and loves us...I'm sure that Jesus talks about us to him...I'm sure he's looking forward to seeing us again too! Since prayer is basically conversation with the Lord, I really believe that we are being prayed for in Heaven...we read in James 5:16 that a righteous man's prayers avail much...aren't all those who have gone on to Heaven considered righteous now? It warms my heart to think that Gus is praying for us! Does this mean that I think our loved ones are watching everything we do?? Nope...but I do think it's possible that the Lord would come to Gus and tell him that his parents are grieving and then together they would pray.

I am so looking forward to spending eternity with my sweet little Gus. I will always think of him until we are reunited...but here and now I have a lovely family to take care of and I want to do that with great joy and with the light of the Lord shining through me!

Please consider organ donation...pray about it, discuss it with your family, research it.

It definitely hurts losing those we love. The good thing is that you'll see him again.
I really like how you weave scirpture into your blog posts.

My husband and I are organ donors. hearing your story and others like it makes me know that we are making the right choice. God bless you and your family on this day and everyday.

I knew today was the anniversary and I wanted to pop by.

I knew if I watched that video montage I would cry, and I don't care that I am at work.

But I wanted you to know that I prayed for your Gus the whole time.

Peace and God Bless!

What a precious little boy. My heart aches for you. Take comfort in knowing that Gus is where we long to go. May God bless you and comfort you today and every day.
