I prayed

Good Morning All..It is time for Word Art Wednesday, Just stop by to pick up the Word Art which is a different scripture to glorify God.
I prayed for this child and the Lord has granted me what I asked of Him. 

Being adopted, I had prayed for flesh of my own flesh, I wanted a child more then anything. The Lord blessed me with 7 boys, six of which He took home and one He left, who is now 34 years old. When I lost my first I was devastated, he lived for 6 weeks before dieing, they were all premature, except for Will (my son). He was the 5th. But for some reason by the second I had a understanding of not losing children but God raising them Himself, I knew when I leave this earth they would all be waiting for me when I come home. I lost my last son June of 1980. I was blessed with joy and peace knowing I have (not had), 7 sons, and one day we will all be together.

Please stop by Word Art Wednesday to see what my other sisters have created and pick up the Word Art and join in on the fun.


Also stay tuned, for we will be having a Valentine Blog Hop with many prizes. Sharing the Love of God through Christ Jesus.

An interesting card, Becky. I first missed the tiny baby wrapped and cradled under the sun-like face. Nice layout and the verse is comforting.
A friend of mine recently lost her husband. She, too, is comforted by her memories and the knowledge that she will be with him again.

Wendy Swenne said...

I love the bright colors and the image.
And what a testimony you share. It gave me goosebumps, just reading that you've been given 7 sons, which one of them stayed here on earth. And the other 6 are raised by our beloved Father in Heaven. I've never thought of seeing it in that way. Thanks for sharing this.

God bless!!

I thought I left a comment on this card, but I don't see it. (Goggle does some weird things sometimes.) My deepest condolences on your losses, Becky. My husband and I have experienced the loss of several children. As you said we can't wait for the day when we are with all our children in heaven.
