It is well...

When peace like a river, attendeth my soul,
When sorrows like sea billows roll,
Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say...

It is well...It is well...with my soul.
I just wanted to share a little something today. As I shared yesterday, an acquaintance of mine lost her baby a few days ago. She spent yesterday in labour, and finally gave birth to her son. Her father and I are friends on facebook...and last night, his status read the words above. He was thankful that his beautiful grandson is in the arms of Jesus.
And it hit me, as much as I may complain to you that read my blog faithfully...and as much as I may allow my pain to overtake me somedays...I can honestly say, It is well with my soul.
I know where my daughter is. She will never have to experience the sin of this world. She entered into the arms of Jesus...completely perfect. Not too many parents can say that.
I don't mean to contradict myself, but if you read this, please say a prayer for me. I've got a rough few days ahead of me. I'm trying to be strong...but it's going to be hard.

I will always pray for you, because my Mom said this to me after I got home from the hopital after losing my little Boy. " Life is Hard but God is so Good ". It's also my status for today on Facebook. I have been dealing with missing my little boy since Sunday. It was my oldest boy's birthday and I was thinking I wish he was here to see what he was like. Why ????? Why my boy ?? I know God is Good and he loves us so much. I just keep thinking when I'm down what my Mom said. It's so true. {{HUGS}}

Oh my, I love that hymn. It always brings me to tears. So true. It may hurt, but it IS well with my soul. God has made it well. I have the hope of seeing my daughter again. Saying a prayer for the rough days ahead.
