. . . just changing 2 letter changes it all doesn’t it?
Today marks 5 years since God gave Truman to me on this earth.
It’s a hard day. A really hard day. Perhaps the hardest. I should be getting ready for a party, watching him unwrap presents, singing happy birthday, blowing out candles, playing with his sibblings, squeezing my neck, and smiling in excitement. I wonder if the theme would have been legos or ninja turtles…
How do I get out of bed when there is not a cute little 5 year old to give morning birthday kisses to? How do I find the good when there is no birthday boy?
“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” – 2 Corinthians 4:18
My trust is not in what is seen – it is in the unseen. Today is Truman’s b-EARTH day. My focus is not on this earth – it is on Heaven. And that my friends is where I am promised eternity. Eternity. That is what this is all about.
Today is the day God allowed me to birth Truman on this earth! It wasn’t a day I was promised HAPPY birthdays. It had nothing to do with cake & candles. I will miss him in ways I can never express, but I know I am going to see him again. His time on this earth was not the end. It was just the beginning.
Today will be a beautiful day. Despite the pain it holds.
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.– Ecclesiastes 3:11
