I have had a lot of emails wanting to hear an update on "my hurting child". If you would like to read the original post-go to my labels under prayer request. Here is more about "my hurting child" and an update.
The reason my daughter is hurting is because of a divorce. She has her good days and bad days. Yesterday (Sunday) she told me that on the way to church that she prayed for the Lord to send somebody with some uplifting words. Well, we had a wonderful service and toward the end of the service a beautiful young woman got up out of her seat and came back and sat next to my daughter. There were some singers singing. I noticed that she put her arm around my daughter and was talking to her and they both were crying and hugging. After church, my daughter told me an angel visited her. You see, my daughter knows this young woman but not well at all. She told my daughter that she was praying the night before for her children and my daughters face came before her and her spirit was troubled for her. She told her how she had been there where my daughter is now. She told her about one time even forgetting to fix her children's supper because of her pain. My daughter shared with her how she had forgotten to eat one day until I asked her what she had ate for lunch. This angel shared with her how "his" family was "her" family and it was like a death and that she had to grieve. My daughter told her how special 'his" family was to her and always will be. This angel told her that she may not see it now, but one day she would be thanking him, because there will be someone to love her more than she could ever imagine. She told her to trust in the Lord. This is what happened to her. She thought it was the end of her world and now she is blessed with a good husband and family. She told my daughter that sometimes we have to go through things so we can help others. She also told her to call her if she wanted to talk, cry, scream, or just have someone hold her while she cries. My daughter needed this so bad. It took a lot for this angel to get up and walk back to where we were sitting during church. She is a very quiet, humble young lady. It means something to obey the Lord and not care what anyone thinks because you might miss out on blessing someone else. What an angel this young woman was to my hurting child. What an answer to prayer. My daughter will be o.k.- I know that because I know that she knows the Lord. I know that she knows where her help comes from. I ask you again to pray for my daughter and my son in law. And if you find it in your heart please say a prayer for us also, as we go through this trial with our "hurting child." Thank you all for your emails and kind words. It has amazed me that people I don't even know, care enough to ask about our situation and not only that, but will pray for us. I know without a doubt that the Lord is in control. So, if you are going through something and you think your world is ending, remember that the Lord could send an angel to you. HE is always right on time. As our Pastor tells us, When HE is all you have, HE is all you need.
