Today, Jonathan has been in the Lord's arms for 1 year. Talking about time spent with the Lord seems irrelevant as He surpasses all measures of time and space, but that's all we earthly creatures have to go by.
Wow, we've come a long way in 12 months, praise God! My thoughts these days are spent more on thinking of Jonathan in his perfect state and perfectly cared for in Heaven. Lately, I've been thinking how gracious it was for Jonathan not to have to experience the pain he would have in this world, and I am thankful for that now. So, although we miss him every day and the wounds aren't completely healed (never will be), today we celebrate his life. His soul still lives, so today he is 1...not, he would've been 1...he is 1 year old.
Jonathan will be a big brother in early May! We are praising God and so thankful that He has blessed us with a healthy pregnancy. His timing is always perfect, and I can say that carrying life in my womb is really helping me cope during this difficult time of year. Lord willing, we will hold another precious blessing in our arms come spring.
