Thoughts on Memories

This past week has been real emotional for me. Lots of thinking , Lots of memories. But one thing I know is " Life is all about making memories ".

Some are good and some are sad but you know it's those sad ones that make us a stronger person. This whole month has been rough but knowing God is there makes it easier. Saturday was hard remembering my Dad but at the same time I know how he was always so happy so full of life. Saturday afternoon Jennifer was sitting at the dining room table coloring a picture. Singing a song This little light of mine I'm gonna let it shine. I thought back to Monday when she took her Bible to school for share day and how proud I was of her. Then Sunday Carly turned 16 months which doesn't seem possible already. Looking back at things this week I remembered how blessed I have been. I thank God for everything I have been given and even though somethings aren't like I would have liked them. I know those memories were created for a reason.

Oh how wonderful...taking her Bible to show and tell! You must be doing something right my friend!

I know you ARE doing lots of things right...cuz you are just one special lady...and mother!

Yes, we do grow stronger through our trials...and God does have a reason for everthing He allows to enter our lives.

And no matter what... we know..."I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!" Philip. 4:13

Have a Happy Monday!

Love, Linda

I think you summed it up well, Caroline, when you said life was about making memories. As you know, Jesus never promised we would have an easy life but did tell us that troubles would come. At least your life is built on the solid rock of Him and that does help get through the sad and troubling times indeed

I hope the week ahead is a good one

We always have to look for the blessings behind the sadness. We are blessed to have the memories when people have left us.
