Safe

I've anchored my soul in haven of rest, I'll sail the wide seas no more; The tempest may sweep o'er the wild stormy deep, In Jesus I'm safe ever more.
My son Steven ,my mother and oldest daughter Donna in 1991. The picture was taken on my mothers birthday she was in assisted living because she had Alzheimer. All of the family came my daughter had come from Texas. The next day her doctor called and said they got back test and she should come for more testing they had found cancer of the thyroid, to this day she is cancer free and doing well. Mother died in 2003 on the 16 of June and 18 years later on his grandmothers birthday June 23 Steven died one year ago today. Steven was 51 years old.

Ooh I'm so sorry for your loss. How does one cope through the loss of a child, I have never been able to fathom that, I can only hope your strength and faith in God helps carry you on.
Your mum looked like a wonderful lady, I can only believe that she has her arms wrapped tightly around Steven for eternity.
Hugs,
Jo

It is always so much sadder I think when our children go on before us.Some things we just cannot figure out in our minds but we have to believe that there was a plan from God in all of it. We always miss them though. When we can finally look back and smile at the memories it is a blessing. You have to know that they are together and enjoying the unending visit.
