{Sunday} Scripture, Photo Art and Journalling

Psalm 116:15-16

Precious in the sight of the Lord 
is the death of his faithful servants.
Truly I am your servant, Lord; 
I serve you just as my mother did; 
you have freed me from my chains.

My journal entry- August 31, 2013 

Sometimes I sit and stare, my surroundings fading away into a mist, 
my mind wandering through past and present, 
images of Amy as a child, young girl, and finally in death. 
At times these images pull me down, down into darkness 
where I feel there is no hope of ever seeing light again. 
Then just as quickly, I begin to feel tears well in my eyes, 
burning and seeking relief from their prison, 
and in that moment of despair 
I am reminded so vividly of my Father in heaven 
and how much more he loves my daughter than I do. 
How much more he loves his Son than I do. 
How much more he grieved his Son’s death than I do. 
How much more. 

Praising Him for his unfailing love, 
today and every day.

~Have a blessed Sabbath~
