The Lord brought together the details of gathering us all--two of the moms from out-of-state--and provided a warm, hospitable place at Ocean Shores to meet (thank you, Pam!). We talked through a series of questions designed to help us reflect on the details of what happened, how it affected our marriages, families, and relationship with Jesus. We also discussed what we would say to a newly bereaved mother--and what we wouldn't!
We also spent a fair amount of time eating too much, laughing, singing worship songs led by one of the moms, and dodging the waves on the beach. It was a good, fun, and healing weekend on multiple levels.
Thanks again for praying--God was there with us.
You now have a child among the angels--to whom we will soon go. So short is life that our wounds are healed almost as soon as they begin to bleed. We part, and so soon meet again. ...To you it must be a sharp cut--but our Lord has an almighty salve. Charles Spurgeon
