One of my other angel mom friends posted this song on facebook this morning and I couldn't help but feel the need to share it. I absolutely love this song, but I have not listened to it for a long time. The third verse has taken on a whole new meaning:
"Consider the sweet, tender children
The pains of all of them he carried
From the day of his birth.
He clothes the lilies of the field,
He feeds the lambs in His fold,
And he will heal those who trust him,
And make their hearts as gold."
The whole time Joshua was on this earth, he suffered. But, I also know that the spirit of our Heavenly Father were with him the whole time. How do I know that? I could feel it every time I looked into his eyes or walked into his room.
Now, with those of us left behind by Joshua, we are the ones suffering. The ache in our hearts continues as the days, weeks, and months pass without him. But, just as the song says, our Savior carries all of our burdens and through Him, our hearts will be as gold.
