As Christians we read in Ecclesiastes 3

There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:

a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance

Knowing this, we are aware that there will be times when our hearts hurt and break. Each of us has experienced that heart break in one form or another. Thinking back on your life, what makes your heart break, and why?

I heart memes, I heart kim, and I heart cafe chat…BUT it seems like every one lately has taken me back to Isabelle’s accident! Hmmm… I tried to think of something different that is heart breaking to write about but this just trumps it all. From seeing my child dead, to giving her cpr, to the nightmare three month hospital stay with all the terrible happenings, to missing the other three kids, to seeing the pain in their eyes, to seeing them cope with it and move on with life, to finding pictures (pre-accident) of Izzy tucked away in their rooms, knowing they look at them and are haunted by them. From the what if’s and where we would be had this not happened, to the look how much we’ve grown in the Lord… from not dwelling in the past, to trusting God with Izzy and our future. From the doctors negative prognosis’ to God’s perfect plan. She is healed in Jesus’ name.

It is all heartbreaking. All of it. But, we have God… and He’s in the heart healing business!
