Why does it seem like everything ends
just as it is beginning
A beautiful friendship
Lost in the crowd
of popularity and confusion
How do I get it back
I don’t think I can
No regrets until now
A spur of the moment night
turns a lifetime into dust
It’s all gone
The love, the memories and emotions
lost forever in this world full of chaos
Day after day, getting worse
and there’s nothing I can do about it
but think and worry and wonder and cry
Is it gone forever
Anything can happen and everything did
That is my problem
Now it’s over and I’m all alone
It’s gone forever

I recently found a poem in some things that i had saved from years ago when I had moved from an apartment I was living in. It is a beautiful poem that I did NOT write. I am not sure where I found this. It is written on three note cards. I do have the author’s name though. Russel Kelfer is the Author and here is the poem:
You are who you are for a reason.You’re part of an intricate plan
You’re a precious and perfect unique design,
Called God’s special woman or man
You look like you look for a reason,
Our God made no mistake.
He knit you together within the womb,
You’re just what he wanted to make.
The parents you had were the ones He chose,
And no matter how you may feel,
They were custom-designed with God’s plan in mind,
And they bear the Master’s seal.
No, that trauma you faced was not easy.And God wept that it hurt you so;
But it was allowed to shape your heart
So that into His likeness you’d grow.
You are who you are for a reason,
You’ve been formed by the Master’s rod.
You are who you are, beloved,
Because there is a God!

I have been reading several devotionals lately.There have been many subjects that I have studied in the past several weeks but one came to mind a few minutes ago…What it means to be a child of God. As at least some of you know at this point, I had my first child this past May. I had a little boy who is the light of my life. I believe that having a child of your own is the one and only way for anyone to know the love between a parent and a child. I think that is when I began to understand the love that God must have for us. He tells us that once we are saved, we become His children so that must mean he has the same love for us that any other parent has for their child or children. It is hard for me to imagine giving up my “one and only Son” for anyone, but that is exactly what God did. He gave Jesus’ life so that we can have the chance to make it into Heaven. Can you imagine?! How much love for us must He have in order to sacrifice His Son? I think that after I had my son and started to bond with him, after I felt the amazing connection and love I have for him is when I began to realize how much my Heavenly Father must love me. That makes me feel like the luckiest person in the world and I hope you feel the same way because He loves us all just the same.
“But to all who did receive Him, who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God…” John 1:12
