While I sat in the mountains this morning as the sun came up, I watched the creek flow by after a down pour of rain last night & I couldn't help but think of how good God is.  That even after a storm, He can turn something into something beautiful.  Even more beautiful than we could ever imagine. 

October 29, 2017.

You would have been ONE today!

And while you aren't here to celebrate, we are here celebrating your special little life.

I still don't know how you can miss someone so much that you never even got to meet.  And even though it never happened here on earth, I know that one day I will get to see your precious little face.

My sweet Ruthie Belle.

It's been a year & a half now since your daddy & I found out your heart stopped beating.  And while the heartache is still there, the days have gotten easier.  Only God can do that.

Only God can take something so heartbreaking & turn it for His good.

There's not a day that goes by that you don't cross my mind.  And you've been on my mind a lot in this particular season of life.

My prayer is the very same today as it has been since May 2016.  That Jesus is telling you all about me, your daddy, your big brother & your big sister.  That He tells you how much you are loved.  And that now He tells you all about your baby sister.

Cooper & Millie Jo still talk about you more often than none & say a lot how much they miss you.

Today we celebrate your life.  Not by watching you dig into a smash cake at your 1st birthday party, but by knowing what a perfect angel you are ... safe in the arms of Jesus.

Today I celebrate your life, Ruthie Belle. 
A life that changed mine so much.
