Let The Joy of Christmas Return

This morning I got a message about a family whose 16 year old son died in the night. He had leukemia. Be still my heart.

It has brought on a flood of emotions, and as I sit in my church parking lot today, I am trying to dry up the tears. 

For me, this is the week. The week my life changed forever.  I don’t celebrate this anniversary but I am always reminded. I am attaching an old blog post for those of you who don’t know about the pain I am speaking of. 

But I rejoice. I rejoice because right now I hurt. It feels as though my God is silent. But He is not. 

My King came in the form of a manger. He went to a cross one where Mary watched her son die.  So I am going out on a limb, but I say that before we can know great joy, we must know great pain. 

The greater the pain, the greater the joy. The gratitude. The awe and wonder of how a Savior came for me. 

And one day… oh yes, one day, He is coming back.

He is coming back for those who are His. That’s me. 

If I am still here when He returns, he will look at the masses and say, “Let’s go!” But He will look at me and say, “Let’s go-ready to see your dad again??”

Now I am squalling. Thanks God for this image this morning. Tears are good.

So is waterproof mascara.:)

This is an old blog post, but it tells my story for those of you who do not know.

Let the celebration begin, after the tears. Thanks to all of you that encourage me. We go through this pain together.  

“I got you, girl. I died so that you could live in paradise with no more tears” Jesus
