Spring Is In the Air! New Beginnings! New Life! New Memories! It has been 9 months since I lost my son(Sept.27,2007) and I have had so much to share. I feel alot of smiles and joyful times coming as I enter this new season. The Spring just reminds me of Dustin so much.His smile,his laughter and his way of making new dreams and loving with all his heart.

I feel as if God will help me get to a Happy Place during this season. Not meaning will ever forget that my son is not here. But to help me find that place I can feel how happy Dustin is and not just know but feel in my heart what a wonderful home he is in. I will think of him every day as I do now, will love and miss him with all my heart as I do now.But will be those days of pure joy and laughter and less tears of pain. I not only want to do this for Dustin but for my daughter too. On my bad days I get angry at myself seems so unfair to Tiffany. She has never said anything of course but in my heart and soul I want us to be like we always have been. She is my daughter and best friend and of course the mom of my Tyler. So as Spring has come I want to focus  not on what is not here but on what is. Which Dustin will always be in my heart and always my son, and only a prayer away.

On The Wings of Prayer

Just close your Eyes and open your heart,

And feel your worries and cares depart.

Just yield yourself to the Father above,

And let him hold you secure in his love.

 

For life on earth grows more involved,

With endless problems that can't be solved,

But God only ask us to do our best,

Then he will take over and finish the rest...

 

So when you are tired, discouraged and blue,

There is always one door that is open to you,

And that is the door to The House of Prayer,

And you'll find God waiting to meet you there.

 

And The House of Prayer is no further away,

than the quiet spot where you kneel and pray.

For the heart is a temple when God is there

As we place ourselves in his loving care.

 

And he hears every prayer and answers each one

When we Pray in His name - Thy will be done.

The burdens that seemed too heavy to bear

Are lifted away on the wings of a prayer.

YES IT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU!

Little Billy asked me last week what I missed the most about Dustin not being here. My answer was his smile and all the songs he use to make up and sing when he would call. Those 2 memories pop into my head every second of the day.

This poem reminds me so of Dustin he was a dreamer,  many in which he made come true many he was still working on. We had many, many conversations on dreams and life which I remember daily. The inner part of Dustin was so different than the outside on so many ways. Outside, always smiling and the inner side in turmoil. Which now I know he is happy and in no more pain. And maybe a lot of answers to the things he never could figure out and maybe has found out that none of it really matters now because he is in total peace and happiness.  I love you baby boy so much!

Don't Be Afraid to Dream

Always have a dream...

Forget about the days

but don't forget your hours in the sun.

 

Forget about the times

you've been defeated

but don't forget the victories you've won.

 

Forget about mistakes

that you can't change now

but don't forget the lessons

that you've learned.

 

Forget about misfortunes you encounter

but don't forget the about the

Blessings you have received.

 

Forget about the days

when you've been lonely

but don't forget

the friendly smiles you've seen.

 

Forget about the plans

that didn't seem

to work out right,

but don't forget

to always have a

dream...

Today's Breakthrough Scripture: Misty Taggart
Ordinary Woman/Extraordinary God

He said: "Go out and stand on the mountain before the Lord,for the Lord is about to pass by." Now there was a great wind,so strong that it was splitting mountains and breaking rocks in pieces before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake, and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a sound of sheer silence-
and then there came a voice to him that said,
"What are you doing here Elijah?"

-I Kings: 19:11-13

O that my people would listen to me..
-Psalm 81:13

Today's Faith Breakthrough

It is okay to be who I am.  I'm not like anyone else in this world.  God handmade me with gifts and beauties all my own.  If I don't take care of myself.  If I don't stop the 'bad' self-talk that takes me into a downward spiral ... I am truly insulting God.  I am His creation.  He is my Heavenly Father.  I'm proud and happy to be me.  Thank you, Father, for taking the special care to create me, all of me.  And for giving me everything I need to fulfill the life you have planned for me.  I simply must stay in touch with you ... it is the only way to know your plan and to know YOU!
