Heaven is all you'll ever know...

Today is just surreal. Slept very little last night. I think as the pain and loss intensifies, I cannot fathom how many families have dealt with this...maybe even more than once. I remembered a song I heard many years ago while I was lying awake last night and when I played it this morning, I was so overwhelmed by promise after promise in every word of this song.

Tears flow freely in this house today. The loss is revealing things about this child's life without me, it's mother, that can't compare to the life that child has in heaven at this moment.

Nothing is more comforting. Miss you everyday.

"I can't imagine heaven's lullabies
and what they must sound like
But I will rest in knowing, heaven is your home
And it's all you'll ever know...all you'll ever know..."

Katie -
I cant even begin to fathom what you are feeling right now and my heart breaks for you and Matt. I am praying for you guys!
I actually thought of that song yesterday as well. Great song! Last night I got in the car to head to bible study (you have lots of other girls praying for you too!) and New by Bethany Dillon came on my Ipod. The chorus goes:
"You take an ordinary day
And turn it into flowers like the month of May
Yes you do
You see all my pain
You cry over it for hours till I'm new again
Yes you do"
I found some comfort in it, and thought I would pass it along - He knows all and makes us new!
Praying for you!
Love, K.Sprink

Your post today has reminded me that although I don't have any siblings here on earth, that I do have siblings in heaven and I too am looking forward to meeting them someday....

I can't begin to understand the pain & sadness you are facing right now; but as soon as I found out all I could think about was the song, "Blessed be your name" -

"You give and Takes Away, You give and take away, my heart will choose to say, Lord blessed be your name."

And as much as we know His timing is best;that doesn't always take the pain away. The Lord gave you a beautiful blessing and you took perfect care of that blessing for the time He needed you to. There is a reason you are going through this struggle right now...continue to lean on Him.
You are in our thoughts and prayers.
We love you guys

Katie,

I am so sorry to learn of the loss of your sweet little one. We will be praying for you and your husband. Continue to press into the Lord. Ken and I had two miscarriages before we carried Norrah to term. It is such a sad and heavy loss and one some people just cannot understand or relate to. If you want to talk, vent or ANYTHING you can email me @ knowingnorrah.comcast.net or message on facebook. Sorry.
