I miss you sweet boy terribly every day…but today, on your birthday, my heart aches and swells with pride and joy all at the same time. I am sad I don’t get to greet you with birthday wishes, gifts and decorations. But how selfish that all sounds, when I consider the kind of birthday you must be having in heaven today. No, I don’t know exactly how or what that must be like, but I do know you are celebrating with the Almighty God who is worthy of our praise…
“Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!” (Rev. 4:8)
I know that Heaven is better and that being with Jesus is better!
“Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.” (Rev. 4:11)
I’m smiling through my tears thinking of all of Warren’s loved ones who have gone before him – surrounding him and celebrating him. As much as I would prefer having him here with you – imagining how immersed in love he is eases the pain I feel for you. Love you.
Praying for your family on your sweet boy’s 1st birthday in heaven. Your blog is a true testament in faith and strength. Thanks for sharing.
💙 Happy Birthday Buddy!!
