This morning while I was meditating on God's Word, I began to think back on all of the times in my life that my Lord and Savior helped me through some most difficult days. I began to think of the words in the poem "Footprints", where God had never abandoned His child, but was in fact carrying him when he was in his darkest hours.
Today is my son Jim's birthday. Even though it has been over six years now that Jim took his own life, today it seems like it was just yesterday.
Father God, there are so many blessings that you have given to me over the years. I thank you daily Lord that before Jim died he accepted You as his Savior and Lord. Heavenly Father, I thank you for carrying me through those rough years of my life. I thank you Lord for giving me the peace, joy and happiness that only an intimate relationship with You can bring. Love, Your child, Lloyd
