A Refuge in Times of Trouble

And can it be
That in a world so full and busy,
the loss of one creature
makes a void in any heart,
so wide and deep that nothing
but the width and depth of eternity
can fill it up.
-Charles Dickens

Dear Jonathan,
 I should be rushing around making last minute preparations for your arrival. You most likely would of joined our family this week. I am heartbroken that I will never hold you again. I do not wish I was holding a newborn right now, I wish I was cuddling you! I am so sorry I could not protect you. I Love you sweet little boy, with all of my heart.
Love,
 your mommy


I cry aloud to the LORD; I lift up my voice to the LORD for mercy. I pour out my complaint before him; before him I tell my trouble. When my spirit grows faint within me, it is you who know my way. Psalm 142 1-3

The Lord is good, 
    a refuge in times of trouble. 
He cares for those who trust in him,
~Nahum 1:7

I am so sorry that you know this pain, it breaks my heart. That is such a precious picture of you and your baby.

Jonathan looks down on you and your family and I know that he is so proud to belong to such an inspiring and loving family.

Laurie and company said...

it is seriously so cool that you posted this. it is so good to laugh at ourselves, in between taking ourselves too seriously and weeping our guts out.
You're pretty darn cool and just wanted to make sure you knew that, my friend.
hugs to you!
