Christmas Cookies and Moving On

This is a hard post for me to write. I've been attempting to write it for 2 weeks. It's hard because once it's posted, Ezekiel's story is covered up. It means we're moving on with life. Life without my precious third child. But life has to go on here. We have to move forward, no matter how much it hurts. God is good. Ezekiel's life is so good now. I know that he would want me to keep living life to its fullest with his brother and sister that are still here with us. So here goes.

It's Christmas, which means it's time to make Christmas cookies. I am afraid I have a confession. I don't like sugar cookies. Last year we made sugar cookies and well, I just didn't like them. So this year we made peanut butter cutout cookies. They were much much better. The kids loved them and they were super easy to make. Here are our pictures from our fun night together as a family.

I think it was good for our family to focus on being together and just enjoying life that evening. Jewell is definitely aware that the baby is with Jesus in Heaven. She loves talking about Jesus and Heaven. So even though we never got to play with Ezekiel, he's very special to Jewell. She loves knowing that her little brother is in Heaven with Jesus. What an honor! I am truly blessed.

  2. Praying for God's grace to cover you. His mercies are new every morning. May you feel God's love wrap around you. Love all the pics! Merry Christmas.
