Dear God...

(author warning: kelvin)

"Dear God..."

Wow, all the things we put after those words... thanks... praise... forgiveness... healing... friends names... blessings...

It is hard to imagine a word or phrase that hasn't gone behind "Dear God..." I suppose every once in awhile a new one comes along though, at least in our individual lives. Example:

"Dear God, please let this be my childs last Christmas".

Yep, I didn't see it coming either.

And then there's the stocking. Christy asked what we will do with Emma's Christmas stocking. Hey, I'm good on everything else...funeral arrangements, old clothes, pictures, you name it, but her stocking? I haven't a clue.


  1. You got me there I did not see that one coming. I am praying for y'all daily.


  2. Oh my goodness- having pulled out Christmas decorations recently, we just had the SAME conversation. And ours went unresolved, too... I started a blog draft on the very same dilemma. It's surprising how "little" details like a monogrammed stocking can creep up and cause so much trouble.

  3. I'm so sorry! I can understand your saying this though. It sucks to have to watch your child suffer! I wish that I could take this pain from you!

    As for the stocking, if and when this day comes, I say hang it up and fill it! Emma will always be part of your wonderful family!


  4. I'm sad with you guys for Emma. Can't imagine what you're going through, but I'm praying for her and you. And I have seen families who have lost children who always include that child as never having left!

  5. You hang it up and you thank Dear God for the wonderful time he gave you with your beautiful little girl. She will always be a HUGE part of your family.

    I pray for you and think of you daily despite you not knowing me. My neice is starting to digress very quickly with the same AWFUL disease. We have been blessed with her for 11 years now. It is nothing less than horrible to watch her suffer each day. God is looking over both of these little angels and comforting us each day.

    Hang in there and I will keep the prayers coming your way.

  6. It has to be so hard to watch a child suffer and not be able to fix it. I am praying for your family and sweet Emma every day.
    Love and hugs and prayers,

  7. I dont have the words, but your family is always on my heart.

  8. I am at a loss here...I know it's hard to believe I would have absolutely nothing to say. But God does have a word for you because it's definitely not something I came up with on my own. Two things though it is hard to believe and see right now...
    1. HE is with you.
    2. HE will CARRY you.
    Not walk beside you or in front of you. This is one of those times (and you know I've been there) where HE will actually pick you up and CARRY you.

    LOVE you guys, and so glad you are in my life.

  9. Just wanted you to know that I have been and will continue to pray for your family.

  10. Have you ever thought about being a writer? I honestly believe you could write a great book. Just a thought. You've definitely got the talent.
    And I didn't see it coming....


Thank you for stopping by. We love hearing from you. Blessings!
