If I Could Just Fix It

My heart is hurting so badly tonight. Today Daughter #1 and her husband told my little 8 year old grandson that they are getting a divorce. My little guy was so devastated. His mom said that he just shook his head and said "no, no, no" then cried and cried.

I adore both of my grandsons but this little guy is so sensitive. He feels hurt so deeply and when he's upset his big blue eyes just fill up with tears. Then they just spill over onto his cheeks. I've never been able to stand it when he cries. He know that's one way to melt his Nana's heart.

Every time I think of him being in so much pain I just want to be able to fix it. I don't want him to hurt so much. I wish I could take the hurt for him but I can't.

I have been praying for him all day long. I know that time will lessen the pain but it will never completely go away. I just wish I could hug him and hug him to make it all better. And when I see him I will do just that. It may not make the pain better but he will know I love him.

My God is in control of this situation as he is in every part of our lives. I know that he will comfort my little guy and draw close. That is the part that always make it easier to walk through these hard times. God is the one true constant -- he will never change, he will never leave, and he loves my little guy more than I ever could.

Dear Kay,
Thanks for popping in to say hey to me. I worked overnights in July.Didn't realise how hard it would be to re adjust. I've missed ya.

Thank God! Courage is as infectious as discouragement. The cheer and strength you possess Kay will flow into your grandson because your mind is fixed and firm on God. I felt the trust, when we have spoken. Your strength is like touching the hem of our Saviour. Gather your sweetboy in your arms and let him feel the love that truly surrounds.

Oh bless his little heart, I hope and pray they can work it out so the kids don't suffer much. It's always harder on them.
