Picture
Twenty seven years ago today I was as busy as I could be. First I was in the throes of labor, then busy giving birth and THEN, wonder of wonders and the best present ever in my life, I was holding my precious firstborn daughter in my arms…and most of all, in my heart!

Never in ten million years or more could I have ever imagined the pain that we would face some 16 years later. It was an attack of utter destruction on our family called divorce that I would never have thought possible.

Seven years ago, the Holy Spirit told my husband, Doc, that at age 26 my firstborn would experience a healing that would draw her back to me. He said we would be restored as the mother and daughter that God intended. That was way too many years to wait for me but I’ve learned that some things just take time and patience and continued prayer and hope.

So here we are. Today my now-grown “baby” is turning 27. Just as He told Doc, after nearly 11 years of struggling, God is doing a mighty work in both of us! She has experienced healing in the past few months that has been a very long time coming, and so have I. My heart is filled with a joy that I many times despaired that I would never experience again. There were far too many of those fetal position times when sixty seconds was way to long for me to fathom…much less years…without my child.

As we celebrate her birthday today, I also celebrate the rebirth of our relationship. I can hardly wait to see what God has ahead for us as we continue to grow and heal together and separately.

I celebrate once again, in some ways even more so than I did 27 years ago, this day!

If you are in a strained or even broken relationship with your child, I want to give you Hope! Yes, it may take longer than you want because of that thing called free will, but do not give up and do not give in. Satan may try to convince you that healing will never happen but God gave you that child because He wants you together and He will do all possible to restore and revive what He intended.

Regardless what it may look like “in the natural”, God’s plans are for you and your child to prosper in your relationship. His plans are for you to have a wonderful future together…superabundant more than you can ask or imagine. Continue to go forward in your life as you wait, but do not give up hope.

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.”

Happy Birthday, Baby Girl!

I love you,

Momsie

You are a good mother Beth. You are an inspiration to everyone. It's hard to take care of another human being and give unconditional love if you are also undergoing some painful experiences in your life. Your daughter grew up well because of you. Both of you are beautiful inside out. You are God's gift to us.

July 3 my second born, second son was born. Recently I divorced (June 28). That day, that son called telling me my trip to see him and his pregnant wife was not wanted. Thank you for your encouragement. I know God has a plan, a hope and a future, but today my heart is sad. Why so downcast o my soul? Put your trust in God and Praise HIm.

It is said that women in labor leave their bodies. They travel to the stars to collect the souls of their babies, and return to this world together. In giving birth to our babies, we may find that we give birth to new possibilities within ourselves. Birth is making us mothers to be strong, competent and and trust ourselves to know our inner strength. This is such a blessing. Happy mother's day to you and happy birth day to your little angel!

Practically everyone has been through or witnessed events that made them ask, "How could God have allowed that to happen?" Some people abandon belief in God altogether because of horrors they witness, believing that if there was a God, he would not sit back and watch as things went so terribly wrong on Earth. You've also undoubtedly listened as people failed in their attempts to answer question.
