2 Mamas, 2 Sons, 1 God

Two Mamas
Same God
Same Town
Same Fervent Prayers
Same Day

Two Sons
One walking on dangereous ground in Afganastan
One walking on dangererous grounds of
teenage self discovery

One son steps on a land mine in a desolate country
The other son rolls his car on a desolate country road

The land mine didn't detonate
The car ejected the driver

One son stepped onto solid ground
and the other son stepped into eternity

Two Mamas

One mama is praising God with
song, dances, tambourine, and banners

The other mama, in the strong arms of God, 
 is weeping, acheing, questioning.
She buries her precious son today
along with all the hopes and dreams she had for him.

Julie we praise God with you
And Jennifer we hurt with you
(Rejoice with those who rejoice
and mourn with those who mourn
Romans 12:15)

You are both good mamas

Two Sons

Patrick we rejoice that God has spared your life.
Tyler we miss you but rejoice that you are
rockin' the streets of gold on your new drums.
(If we live, we live to the Lord;
and if we die, we die to the Lord.
So, whether we live or die,
we belong to the Lord.
Romans 14:8)

Same God

This side of heaven, we will never understand.
but then it probably won't matter to us.

Scripture tells us that
He is a good and just God
that His lovingkindness endures forever
That his mercy is unending
and that
He is the same yesterday, today, and forever

Two Mamas, Two Sons, Same God
