Thank You

When I first began this blog, I never intended on sharing it with anyone. It had been encouraged my many for me to journal... many times I sat with pen and paper and tried to write... the tears came and the pain grew.. it was so hard. I never got very far..

With the encouragement of 2 friends I decided to give blogging a try.. I have been amazed. There is something about typing on a keyboard that make it so much easier... So many thoughts I am able to release and put here that I couldn't get out before.
Those close friends found my blog and shared with me how it had touched them... I was suprised...
The thought that someone would want to read my rambled thoughts, raw emotions, and jumbled words is amazing to me. I certainly do not have the gift of words as many other bloggers I follow.. Things definately don't flow and I'm not sure I even make sense half the time.

The fact that others care... spend the time to visit and read my words... is hard to describe. I appriciate so much the prayers, the comments, and encouragement. It is things like that which carry me through this difficult time.
If something I say touches someone else ..that would be such a gift. For me to be able to bless another life through my pain, would be more than I can ask for...

I know that God has a plan... I wish I could see it and grasp it...
I know that God WILL use things all for His good... I wish I could understand how...
I know that God is in control...I wish I could let go and Let him be....

So I want to say Thank you... for taking the time to stop by.. For your prayers.. your comments. It means so much.

I am praying that God will show me how He wants to use all of this.. to know what we should do to reach out and touch the lives of others... Because of Brayden.

Whether it be, working with a charity, starting a ministry/ outreach to others, educating others, advocating... or something else... I desire to find my purpose. To know what it is I can do to make "all things work together for the good" ... through Jesus Christ... Because of Brayden.

Please pray with me about this.

I have totally emersed myself into this blog world and have been so blessed reading and getting to know so many of you and your stories. I look forward to the relationships that can be built and the connections that will be made.

Please feel free to write, ask questions, or just drop me a quick line anytime at BecauseofBrayden@gmail.com.

So Blessed to not be on this journey alone...

Michelle - It is indeed awesome the way our precious heavenly Father works in our lives. You have touched my life in ways that you will probably never understand. You have experienced something that a parent should never have to experience, but Praise God, He gives you strength to carry on when you don't think you can. He is mighty and powerful and He is the King of Kings.

You are in my prayers and one day - you will share your story and minister to others.

In His Grip,
Beth
