Thank You!!!

Thank you for your prayers and comments! I can feel your prayers. At this moment I am doing better than the last moment, but that doesn't mean the next moment will be better. Please read my previous entry to know a little better why I wrote this one. This is a roller coaster! I miss my precious Janie Beth and I love her so much, she is always on my mind.

Thank you, Joey, for holding me!!!! You are my beloved! I can't imagine this walk without you, and I don't want to! Thank you for being a person with skin on that will hug me and hold me whenever I need it, even if it means I have to wake you up! I need you. I love you!

Thank you everyone else who hugs me and holds me and shows me Jesus with skin on! I need you all too. We are truly the body of Christ! I am blessed by my friends.

Thank You, Father, for giving me exactly what I need! Thank You, Jesus, for understanding my pain! This journey has brought a whole new perspective on the journey You walked. You are amazing!!! Thank You for blessing me! I love You!!!


  1. Dearest Michelle, I can tell you have figured out that even if those of us who love you were present every moment and there to listen, talk, cry, hug, and hold your hand--it would not be enough. There is no shortcut to get rid of this pain and the only one who can really heal it and carry you adequately is our Abba whom we both love and depend on. I am still praying and love you very much! My short desperate prayer in times like this, even going down the aisle at Publix is "O, Lord Jesus!" Especially when life demands that we keep putting one foot in front of the other.

  2. Michelle, I am sitting here in tears reading about what your family has just walked through. I'm terribly sorry for the loss of your sweet Janie Beth. She was absolutely beautiful. I pray you will experience the closeness and comfort of God in inexplicable ways during this time.
    Much love,

  3. Michelle, I don't know you personally, but I do wish I could hug you. Your sharing will help so many more than you know. I have been holding my babies tighter and longer since knowing of your sweet Janie Beth. I've thought more of the important things, and less of the unimportant. In my personal quiet time I came across some verses and thought of you.

    Love in Christ, Hannah Sparks

    2 Corinthians 1:9-11
    Indeed in our hearts we felt the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead. He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us. On Him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us as you help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many.

    Psalms 126:5-6

    Those who sow in tears
    will reap with songs of joy.
    He who goes out weaping,
    carrying seed to sow,
    will return with songs of joy,
    carrying sheaves with him.

  4. Hannah, thank you so much for sharing those verses!! They really blessed me! Thank you for thinking of me.
