I can only imagine…


I wrote this post back in August of 2006. Sitting here, reading it again, I can’t describe the feelings of joy mixed with heartbreak.  I so very much miss her little broken body.  But then I remember the words that I wrote in this post and realize that my life long prayer for my sweetly broken Emma Grace came true on April 22, 2011 & I cry happy tears.



When I first saw this video- It touched me deeply.

I sit here in tears watching it again. I often wonder what Emma will do when she sees the other side of those pearly gates. I often wonder how she will react to seeing our Savior. I imagine her running up to him, crawling up into his lap and saying “Daddy, Im Home!” I imagine her skipping down the streets of gold, running without hesitation. Talking without limitations. Singing without reservation. A body with no disabilities…. I cant tell you what that does for my soul.

I long for the day my daughter doesnt wave her hands in the air with no control. I long for the day that her mind has complete control over her body. I long for the day that she is truly healed- body spirit and mind. My heart cries for that daily.

While she is here, I will be her voice. I will be her comfort. I will be her protector. I gave her my word on the day she was born that I would do everything in my power to make sure her life was a life of quality, hope and most of all love. I promised to love her unconditioanlly, despite the pain this journey would be for our family. I looked into her baby blue eyes, and gave her my word. I will make good on that promise as long as there is breath in me.

I may never see the moment Emma is healed, it may not happen on this side of heaven- But I can only imagine what a celebration it will be, the day Christ heals my child- either here on earth, or on the other side of those gates! Until that day comes, I will praise Him for His promise to her.

Then His light will break out like the dawn,
And Her recovery will speedily spring forth;
And His righteousness will go before her;
The glory of the LORD will be Her rear guard.

Sweetly Broken

In church last Saturday night, Easton lead the song "Sweetly Broken" by Jeremy Riddle.  The words really spoke deeply to my heart, and got me to think about what it means to truly have a broken heart, but more importantly what it means to be completely surrendered to Gods justice and sovereignty. He … [Continue reading]
