YOU NEVER GIVE MORE THAN WE CAN HANDLE

PLEASE GOD

YOU NEVER GIVE MORE THAN WE CAN HANDLE

Hello God are you there?

My Daughter is having a very rough year...

I almost lost her in June but, it wasn't her time...

You know I trusted you and I thanked you...

Did I not say something I should have because, here we go again?

I know you have the final say and you're our Author of our Beginning and our End...

​​​​​​How can I convince her that you gave her as a gift to me and though you didn't say who would out live the other?

In a perfect World a Child would never die first...

I went through grief counseling and it was then I knew that I was more advanced in my healing with the loss of my Parents, Grandmother, and Brother than I felt...

But, God if your plan is to take my Daughter out of this World, I ask that you would present yourself in her life...

I can't change what you control, and I believe you have the final say...

If it's surgery that can cure her, I trust you...

If it's medicine, I trust you...

Please God, you never give more than we can handle...

I trust you for your protection, your guidance, and the strength...

I trust you for the gift of all of our days...

Amen.

Hugs...

Me...

wow Sparrowsong.

This is an extremely beautiful , very personal
letter, and while I am admittedly not a man of
faith, I RESPECT the Faith of others.

I hope that everything works out for your
daughter.

You have an eloquent and passionate delivery
in your prose.

I admire that.

For anyone who's wondering my Daughter had an MRI yesterday for abdominal pain, it came back she has a Cyst on her pancreas...

The tumor is benign at this time  but, unfortunately one out of two turns to Cancer...

There's nothing they can do at this time she was told and they sent her home...

Prayers are greatly appreciated if you're a praying person...

Thank you very much for reading...

Hello Jeremy...

​​​​​​I have a lot of friends who aren't people of Faith but, because we're friends they will pray for me if I ask them too...

I haven't said anything to any friends I know personally...

I'm giving her her space if she wants to talk about in her circle, that's her decision...

She's not sure if God exists either but, she knows I pray...

No one knows how anything will effect them until it does...

​​​​​Thank you for your caring thoughts...

Thank you for your very kind comment and support!

Hugs...

Aww such a touching letter poem, it's written in such a loving moving way expressing your sweet maternal invocation and concerns. Just keep praying to the one true immortal God and He will help you. I almost lost my son this month too but i i feel prayers saved him. Prayers also saved me frim going into depression due to the anxiety and stress it caused as he suffered terrible side effects of medicine.
so kudos and prayers be with you. 
Take care Both of you. 🌺

Hey sis....What a very sad and personal write.  I will definitely pray for your daughter.  I am so sorry that she has had a scare with health and going through it again.  I hope the cyst does not turn into cancer.  My dad has been struggling with cancer for years...and then just recently they did an MRI and they say it is gone!  He thought he was going in to have more radiation and hormone therapy, and instead was told it was non-existent!  Miracles happen and God is in control.  I know how stressful it is though to feel out of control.  A parent never wants their children to suffer of die before they do.  Hang in there, sis.  xo Love n Hugs

Hello Greg...

Thank you very much!

I remember the effects my Brother's death had on my Mother and she was so sad until cancer took her...

The saddest part is that so many lives are infected with this and other horrible parasites...

For those in the receiving end are very wealthy because of it...

Thank you again for your prayers...

Thank you for your kind comment and support!

I'm sorry for all your loss...
