Just a Little Reminder..
As I was in the shower this afternoon God reminded me of this story..Mike came home last night after his meeting at the church and told me this story that our Pastor relayed to him....Mike hadn't been to his meetings for a couple months now since we had a lot going on emotionally so he was welcomed back with many condolences. There was a lady at our church who had twin boys years ago, and I guess she talked about them very frequently. I never heard her talk about them because I didn't spend a lot of time with her, but I have had others tell me that she remembered their birthdays, etc. She never had any more children, and I have no idea why. I don't even know what happened to her boys, but she never gave up faith in God. She was a woman who everyone knew in our big church because she gave so much of herself to others, and she very openly professed her faith in God. She passed away a couple of weeks ago, and our whole church was very saddened by this news. Our Pastor must have been helping write the obituary when he realized that her boys should be included...He said that we taught him that even if our children never lived a day on this Earth that they are still our children. He never thought that way before, and he thanked us for allowing him to be a part of her Memorial, day we had with her, etc. WE taught him. I guess our Pastor asked her husband if he could include the boys in her obituary and he said yes of course. I know I question why this happened to us all of the time in my head, but look at the one little thing that has come out of this so far..her boys were remembered just like she wanted them to be! Even though it is sad she is gone from this Earth I rejoice for her because she finally gets to be with her boys after all of these years! Living, grieving, dying..it is all a learning process..
