March 9th

    Today is March 9th. It would have been Amy's 32nd birthday. I don't know how to prepare for this day. Instead of celebrating, we take balloons to the cemetery. Missing her on my birthday is one thing, but missing her on her birthday is a whole different ball game. We are going away, it'll be a good distraction. 

    Last year around May or June I noticed a scripture calendar a friend gave me had been forgotten about in all that was going on. It was stopped on this day. And it remains on this day because this is what it says:

 "We throw open our doors to God and discover at the same moment that he has already thrown open his door to us. We find ourselves standing where we always hoped we might stand out in the wide open spaces of God's grace and glory, standing tall and shouting our praise. Romans 5:2 MSG" 

    It sits beside the pictures I have of Amy and reminds me that this day and every day she is standing tall and shouting her praise to the Lord in the glory of His presence!!!
