Time

"Time heals all" I don't know if this will ever apply to a parent that has lost a child at any age.

Time does help the pain ease. I guess the pain is just filled with more smiles, and the time between the really hard ache in my soul and the sweet peace that fills my heart seems to be longer.

My sister said she couldn't imagine losing a child, my thoughts back to this, I too could never imagine losing another child. Perspective, it's all relative...sadly this is true, well maybe for a good reason.

Time flew by when I was pregnant, by God's grace at the time, now I wish it would have lasted much longer. Time since Maxson was born has creeped by. I don't know how or what can change the perspective of time so much. All I know is when you lose a part of you, you crave heaven SO much more. Maybe this is why time goes so slow, like when I was little and looked forward to a vacation or something fun, the time leading up to it would then go by so much slower.

Time being the essence of my thoughts tonight, I will leave you with a great quote and a truthful verse.

“Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.”
Henry Van Dyke

Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.
Psalms 62:8

My prayers continue for you Trish as you move forward in "time" with the weight of Maxson in your heart. I don't know if "time heals all" but I do know that the Lord helps us in our healing over time. I pray for Him to lift your heart daily and shine His loving light on you. Maxson's time here was short, but he sure left a lasting presence on so many hearts, mine is one of them. I just want you to know that you are loved and prayed for by me. And I agree, time is eternity for those who love.

Love and Hugs, Laurie

Ugh...those comments from caring by-standers...time heals all...I hate those comments. The only thing that can heal us is having our children back in our arms. One day we will. And I can't wait to meet your little Max. He was so handsome and seeing his pictures brought me much peace while waiting to meet my Dylan. Though the circumstances upon us meeting are grim, I am still thankful to "know" you. Praying for a peaceful weekend for you.

what a beautiful quote. I think God always wants our heart to long to Heaven - our home - but I think when you long for it to get to your baby - God has to tend to your heart even more while you wait...

Praying you feel God's love tending to your broken heart!

Thinking of you. I think time takes on a whole new meaning when you have a child waiting for you in heaven. I like to remember that it will feel like a moment to our babies when we will see them again!

It just feels so stinkin long for us! Praying for your heart.

Love,
Laura
