Happy Birthday Sweet Alayna

Psalm 34:18 "The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit."  Today marks one month that my sweet baby Alayna has been in heaven.  I cannot believe she has been living in paradise for one whole month already.

Going Home

Go rest now precious one,
Your life in eternity has just begun.
Now you can walk, your legs are brand new.
All of heaven is now in your view.

Look all around, it's all in your sight,
There will never be another dark night.
Flowers and jewels, the street of pure gold,
And all of the things that have been told.

I can just imagine the smile on your face
As you walk all around in that beautiful place.
Greeting our loved ones as you walk along,
While singing heaven's most beautiful song.

This is so very hard, but it will all be okay,
It isn't goodbye, we'll see you one day.
We love you and we'll miss you and at times it will be tough,
But as with everything, God's grace will be enough.

I continue to pray without ceasing that the pain will ease. And it has a tiny bit. But every morning I still wake up thinking about what it would have been like to see her grow up. I remind myself that I will get to be her mommy forever in heaven but that doesn't always help when I want her here with me now. Thankfully its Saturday today which means my positive hubby was home to change my attitude and get me out of bed. And in our devotion time I was reminded that "Faith is believing what we do not see, and the reward for this kind of faith is to see what we believe (Saint Augustine).
