If you have spent any amount of time here on Raising Arrows, you’ve noticed the little girl in the sidebar and the section at the top labeled The Grieving Mother.
That is Emily and she is part of my story.
This is the path God put our family on. I would never have asked for this, but I realize now, His plans are greater and wiser than mine and it is my responsibility to be His hands and feet to others who are grieving.
Over the years, I have had many people tell me that losing a child is their worst nightmare and they just cannot imagine living through such horror. My answer to them is not to live in a world of fear.
Even though my mind occasionally wanders into the darkness of the fear of losing another, I know I don’t belong there.
That is why I am sharing at The Better Mom today on the topic of not letting yourself fear something that may or may not be your reality, but to live each day as a worship offering to the Lord…no matter what path you are on. Join me there.
