When You Look Back



That is so true! I have noticed that most of the events I write about on my blog happened years ago! The beautiful part of the story wasn’t clear for decades! On this date in 1985 I was reeling from the loss of my Mother 10 days earlier, when my daughter Catherine was born only to die two hours later. I’m gaining more insight about how “we know that God causes EVERYTHING to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” Romans 8:28 I can’t believe 29 years have passed since then. Only today I realized if we had stuck to our original plan of 2 children and if I had died and/or Catherine had lived, I never would have given birth to Chris and Ann Marie. That would have been an immeasurable loss to countless people, including big brother, John! God had blessings after the tragedy of losing my Mother and Baby Catherine that were filled with love and promise and I will always be the mother of 4. The whole story can be read here:


About Debbie Hamilton Carson

Single Mom with Three Adult Kidss and their Signifcant Others, and One Amazing Grandson! I am a Disciple of Jesus Christ, Educator and Lifelong Learner. Because of MS, I'm mostly homebound, but, by God's Grace, my boundaries are wide open! My circumstances could have kept me somewhat isolated, yet, via the World Wide Web (ie. Facebook, email, blog, Community Bible Online Church & Zoom Bible studies) has allowed me to develop & maintain relationships with many interesting people and I continue to grow & learn as a person & a child of God. As in the prayer of Jabez, God has expanded my boundaries! "Jabez called out to the God of Israel, “If only you would greatly bless me and expand my territory! May your hand be with me! Keep me from harm so I might not endure pain!” I Chronicles 4:10 NET version. God answered my prayer as I claimed that. I originally started this to share with my kids. However, it has also become an avenue for me to share my life and the ways God is teaching me by His Design and for any grandchildren to come! Scripture says "Write this down for the next generation so people not yet born will praise GOD:" Psalm 102:18-22(The Message) ♥
