I Held On To This Key

In October of 2014 our 20 week old son was diagnosed with a fatal disorder. The doctors wanted us to terminate the pregnancy. We had COURAGE and FAITH and chose life. We spent the next 3 months hoping, crying, praying ,loving our son and waiting. We had so many people praying for us everyday and we felt much peace. A wonderful amazing friend who prayed for us often and gave me lots of hugs gave me the COURAGE key at a baby shower that friends threw for our unborn sick son. I held on to this key to remember to have COURAGE to face what the Lord had placed in front of us. On Jan 26th 2015 our son Elijah was born. He lived for an hour and a half. He knew lots of love from his sisters and family then he went to be with Jesus. God has brought us so much closer as a family and to him through this difficult time. I miss my son everyday but I know he is in heaven now and no longer in pain. I now pass this key of COURAGE on to a dear friend who has suffered from severe mental abuse during her marriage . She is currently going through a very difficult divorce and taking care of her 2 beautiful daughters mostly by herself. I pray that she has the COURAGE to get through everyday. That she has the COURAGE to make a better life for her and her daughters and that she realizes what a very special and beautiful person she is.
