Faith Friday Post
Well I was just at Sweet As Pie's blog and she had this amazing button that I Loved.
So I STOLE IT... Yep you read that right I AM A THIEF.... But the Lord still loves me.
Besides she said I could. so THERE!!! ( sticking out my tong and wiggling my fingers in my ears )
So I thought I would give this a try.
I am going to post a brief story on Faith. I then ask that you all respond with a comment about Your Faith or a story about faith. So here we go....
Years ago I worked graveyard at a local store. every night around 2:30 a family would come in. A young mom her hubby and 2 small children.
Now my first thought was WHY ON EARTH DO YOU HAVE THESE BABIES OUT SO LATE.
So after a few visits and talking with them I felt it was ok to be nosy enough and ask them why.
What I was not prepared for was the answer.
The mom stated that they had a baby that was very sick in the hospital and the only time they could be with her was as a family was later in the night. ( the hospital was almost a hour away ) She stated that they knew that the baby was going to be with the Lord soon so this was their family time. (OH MY GOSH....)
I went home the morning and told Darling Hubby about this family and how calm the mom was talking about how she knew that her baby was going to die.
I remember my exact words to darling hubby was
IS THIS LADY MENTAL? Cause if it were me I would be a ranging lunatic.
Darling Hubby said FAITH DEAR.... she has FAITH THAT THE LORD IS WITH THEM NO MATTER WHAT.
I WILL NEVER HAVE THAT FAITH. I WILL HATE GOD IF HE EVER TAKES LOGAN FROM ME. ( Logan was our only child at the time )
But here it is 6 years later and I KNOW WHAT HE MEANT. I FEEL IT. I am not saying I have the strongest faith but I have faith never the less.
I know without a shadow of doubt that My boys are not mine. they are the Lords that he gave me to raise here on earth. but one day they will return to the Lord and be with him.
So there you have it folks. MY Story on Faith.
