I met a new mom in Walmart not long ago and her daughter shares Reese's bday. It was strange to look at that baby and think, "that's how big Reese would be..." and "that's what she'd be doing...".
I'm sure I'm not helping you. And I'm sure I'm overstepping my boundaries. I'm not trying to. My heart still aches for you, but in doing so, it keeps me ever mindful to pray with you and for you.
I still don't understand - never will - but I trust God in a whole new way and have a whole new perspective on life. I'm fumbling with my words today...I guess what I'm trying to say is I "see" Reese everywhere and in that, I see God everywhere too.
Thinking of her definitely helps me maintain focus and perspective - to see more clearly with "God eyes" than I ever have before.
Things that used to be a big deal, just aren't anymore. And things I may have taken for granted before, are much more recognized, celebrated, and appreciated.
But to all who did receive Him, He gave them the right to be children of GOD, to those who believe in His name...
