and no I don't mean pumping weights. People have commented to us how strong we are in our dealing with Baby Jacks passing. Strong? What makes us Strong? We don't feel we're any different that anyone else. It's true we don't show much emotion in public, so maybe they're not seeing the teary eyed side. We do talk about Baby Jack allot. The cemetary is a little over a mile away, and we wave and say Hi to him everytime we drive by. We do have faith that someday we'll see him again. We also take comfort in a number of songs that have touched our hearts.
Here's the first verse of "What Faith can do" by Kutless
Everybody falls sometimes
Gotta find the strength to rise
From the ashes and make a new beginning
Anyone can feel the ache
You think it’s more than you can take
But you're stronger, stronger than you know
Don’t you give up now
The sun will soon be shining
You gotta face the clouds
To find the silver lining
We sang the song "I will Rise" by Chris Tomlin
There's a peace I've come to know
Though my heart and flesh may fail
There's an anchor for my soul
I can say "It is well"
Jesus has overcome
And the grave is overwhelmed
The victory is won
He is risen from the dead
And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
I will rise on eagles' wings
Before my God fall on my knees
I will rise
A friend sang the song "Homesick" by Mercy Me
We liked every line and word on that song, so instead of posting the lyrics,
scroll down and it's on the music player and click on it and it should play.
There is one line from Homesick that fits in here though
"Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow"
We believe that someday we'll see him and believe that our Faith in God has gave us the "Strength" to brave the "Storm"
