Hard to believe my little boy would have been 10 today. This day is always difficult. He's been on my heart so much lately. The bitter cold weather seems to take me back to that time and the memories become too fresh. I think about how hard it was to say good bye, but then I have to remind myself that its only temporary. My Peyton is waiting for me.
I am thankful that the Lord used this circumstance in my life to draw me closer to Him. I think if He hadn't taken my boy from me, my heart would have never been open to Gods word. Peyton's death made me realize how hard it must have been to GIVE up a son, and He did it willingly for me.....and you. To make such a sacrifice, God truly loves us. Would I have been so willing, given the choice? Probably not. Where I am selfish God is not.
I am missing my boy on his 10th birthday and wishing he was here to celebrate but knowing that on this day he is Heaven with the Savior. That's better than any party I could have given him.
So happy birthday to you my sweet boy. Until we meet again.
