Happy Birthday Jeremy

How I long to see him again. I wait with expectation knowing that we will have an awesome re-uniting.
Until then ... Lord give me the strength to press on. Finding your will in all things. Reveal your fire and desire burning in me. Lord, build in me all that you desire for me. Help me move forward - in your will, desire and plan.

Thank you Lord for choosing me to be Jeremy's mommy ....
A dear friend said to me yesterday: celebrate the blessings.

Today, as I try to be intentional with my feelings and thoughts Philippians 4:4-9 came to mind:

4Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

To top it ... this is the scripture Jack and Sam read at Jeremy's service:)

Your little man is adorable. Sorry that you have faced this pain in losing your son, but glad to know that you were able to meet your son & love him. We too lost our 1st child this past year - our little girl was born in April with Trisomy 13. She lived 27 hours - we feel so lucky to have held her for the short time that we did. January 7th marks 1 year since we found out she had Trisomy 13.
