The Journey five years later.

Thank you for sharing and writing this. I have not like you experienced the pain of loss in this way. Your story testifies of HIM. I have a third child who was born after two caesars. I had been told it was too ‘dangerous’ to have this No3, God blessed us with a second son . He was born Fit and healthy and we thanked God for His Grace. Kev was not quite 2 when he had a febile convulsion after getting measles and Glandular fever together from older siblings. “He will probably not survive the night’ the doctors said. I stood peering out to heaven appealing and praying earnestly for my child’s life. I learned a great lesson that night. I was forced to ‘surrender’ my son into His Hands totally whether He lived or died. I battled in prayer and peace only came when the place in my heart came that I absolutely trusted Him even if we had to walk through the searing pain of loss, The rest of the story is in HIS realm and I won’t share here but I slept I KNEW I had learned a deep spiritual lesson.

Its been a while and the pain is no more.

I see so much of you in your siblings.

When you left, my hands felt lighter and heart empty.

With little hope to hold onto.

The doctors reports suggested i would never experience the joy of motherhood again.

But i had a promise. A promise that God gave me as you breathed your last breath in my arms.

J is almost four now.. He fills in your space like a pro. He leads like a first.

God promised me a son and he delivered. Exactly the time He foretold.

He said to me,he is a God of all seasons and i have testified of that.

When J was conceived i was told the risks of developing the same heart issues like you were higher , i was also told never to dare conceiving again. I hadn’t even recovered from the…

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
