Journey to June: Marked by Love
After I lost Trevor I really wanted a piece of jewelry to wear with his name on it so he could be close to my heart whenever I wanted. I searched & searched online. Finally I saw this piece designed by Lisa Leonard and I fell in LOVE with it. She created it in honor of Angie Smith whose baby Audrey Caroline died just 2 hours after her birth. The necklace is called Marked by Love. Some lives, though short, profoundly change the world and leave a mark on our hearts. Moms who have lost a child know their hearts are forever marked by love. I absolutely love the necklace. It has some weight to it which reminds me that my little Trevor has weight in this world. His short life matters. The material it is made of warms up when it is next to my skin. I feel it and I am reminded of him. I LOVE my necklace and just wanted to share it with you.
Brandon is the most wonderful husband & daddy anyone could ask for! I am so thankful that in God's sovereign plan he brought the two of us together. I am so thankful for every day with him and we joke all the time about how we can't wait to grow old together! He is my Best Friend!
My husband Brandon & I live in Protection, Kansas where he was called by God to pastor a church in July 2008. We have a wonderful family including Samantha 13 years old & loves sports, Kailey who is 7 years old & loves to cheer & dance ALL THE TIME, Trenton who is 5 years old & loves John Deere Tractors & Trevor who went to Heaven on January 4, 2010 when I was 17 weeks & 2 days pregnant. I love my family & I love my life in Kansas.
The fact that I am a woman does not make me a different kind of Christian, but the fact that I am a Christian makes me a different kind of woman. For I have accepted God's idea of me, and my whole life is an offering back to Him of all that I am, and all that He wants me to be.-Elisabeth Elliot
