Latley I had been questioning my faith. I grew frustrated with my religion and attended 3 different funerals within the last 6 months for a 38 year old, an 8 year old and a 5 month old. How, I thought, could God take such young beauty and grace from this earth, when only delivering it, in what seems like, minutes ago? Then I witnessed faith in action, a true demonstation of love for Him, right before my eyes. My friend, a mom who was grieving for her dieing child, opened up her hands and heart and offered comfort to those who may have begun to question God's holy purpose for each of us, who may have begun to lose faith themselves, as they witnessed her child's suffering.  As she herself continues to be faithful, I'll never forget that simple
offering of God's love and hope as long as I live.
Christ has died, Christ has risen, Christ will come again.

Holly, I also wondered sometimes how I could lose a husband and be diagnosed with cancer and do treatment all in the same year and months, for a time I would be told by others God doesnt give you more then you can handle. I wanted to hit the next person that came up to me and said that to me again and again. You know what I found out 4 years later? That I am stronger, that there are reasons for what happens to us in life and my faith is stronger now then it was then. Now if I could inspire others then I will know the reason for going through that.....I have learned that every day God is with us! Sometimes it is hard to know that especially with babies dying.....Happy Saturday to you and Matt!
