  • Donna - Wow! I’m really glad your doing so well. It’s just the thanking God for saving you in one comment and selling stuff in the next that has me lost.

You lost me…

    ps I’ve been with you since about the time Cora started getting sickReplyCancel

  • Sarah Pallozzi - Wow! This song has been such an encouragement to me in the last few weeks. I have just been singing it in my head over and over.

  • Trisha Larson - Before Nate died, I heard Jana Alayra speak at my MOPS about losing her daughter in a car crash. She couldn’t explain it except to compare it to the man who wrote the hymn “it is well with my soul” after a ship sank killing his wife and kids many, many years ago. I didn’t understand it at the time and must admit that there are days that I still don’t but I’m learning to accept that Nate’s death on earth and now life is Heaven is “well with my soul”.

    A long explanation for why that necklace would be just perfect 🙂

When our sweet boy was still in my “tummy” I would sing this hymn to him and let him know that every single day of his little life was a gift from our Creator, and that my prayer is that he will come to understand God’s so great salvation…so that ~ no matter what ~ it will be “well with [his] soul”, too!

    Thank you for the opportunity.ReplyCancel
