Heaven

Hebrews 13:8 - Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

Arabella Grace was called home into the arms of Jesus on Sunday night.  She was born still at 1 pound 1 oz., & 10 inches long.  She was tiny & perfect & beautiful.

I am devastated.  I rejoice in knowing where she is, but I am mourning her physical prescence so much.  I miss her.  I can barely sleep, and the enemy is using my own fears against me right now.

Please keep me, my husband and our families in your prayers.

I can only imagine the heartache you're suffering through, but I'm so glad that you can rest in the knowledge that your precious girl is in the hands of our Creator at this very moment. I know it doesn't take away your own hurt, but I know you know she's in good hands. Praying for peace and comfort for you and your husband, and for joy in the midst of heartache.

    Much love,
    Dawn

  23. Lea, we do not know each other, but I lost one of my twin boys 31 years ago through stillbirth. I agonized emotionally between grief over the devastation of loss and joy of having one healthy baby. Through the years the pain subsides, but the memory remains. God will see you through this, but He also provides caretakers in the form of grief-counselors and groups who have suffered the same losses and can help you and your husband because they are in various stages of the grief process themselves. Be strong and allow them to lift you up at this time; we are our brother's keeper. You will eventually be able to help others through their pain. That is our work on Earth. You are in my prayers, as is your sweet Ellie.

  27. I am so very very sorry, Lea. I will never understand why these things happen. Maybe we are not meant to right away or maybe not at all, but God has a plan. Hold on tight to Him. There is a beautiful song by 33 Miles that helps get me through the hard times. It's called "Hold On". You and your husband are absolutely in my prayers. {{{Hugs}}}
