About Me

My photo
Disciple of Jesus Christ, saved by grace, pressing on to take hold of that for which Christ took hold of me (Phil 3:12). Blessed to be the crown of my husband and a steward of 3 children entrusted to us. I have the gift of today and hope of tomorrow. I am driven by the pursuit of His glory and maybe I have come to the kingdom for such a time as this (Esther 4:13)! As a family the desire of our soul is for His name and for the remembrance of Him.(Isaiah 26:8).

Because God gave us you....

Because God gave us you....

This was the title of the book we gifted Hannah 1 year ago on her 6 th birthday. As I look back I know I was affirming to her ( and to me) that God was the one who gave her to us and He had absolute authority over her life as well. Today,had she been here, she would have been seven.

Like I always say, God is good and what he does is good. In his wisdom it seemed good to Him to direct things this way.

We want to make it a tradition in our family to speak about Hannah and to think about her a lot on her birthday and teach our other children everything about her and what we have learned, as we went through this school of sorrow. We want to visit her cemetery and teach our children though her body lies there, she is with the Lord. We want to remind ourselves and teach our children that we will all see her one day that is, if they put their trust in Jesus Christ as their sister once did. We want to thank God for giving her to us and helping us raise her through our mistakes and wisdom and enabling us to be witnesses unto Him even in her death.

Because God gave us you, we will continue to love you...

Happy Birthday Hannah
