|Began the day with a visit with my lil' angel|
|No matter the painful circumstance...with God, we are never alone|
|Remembering our angels - "Whisper", Jack and Ethan, and Zac|
|Jack and Ethan, our identical twins. The second bottom sac is where Whisper began...|
|An amazing moon hanging over the cemetery where Zac "rests"|
"I THANK MY GOD EVERY TIME I REMEMBER YOU..." - Phil 1:3
GOD SEES EVERY TEAR
No heart breaks alone,
for God is always near,
And when a prayer is whispered,
He's always there to hear...
When sorrow's overwhelming,
He comforts tenderly,
For not a single tear will fall,
that the Father doesn't see.
God Himself will be with them; he will wipe every tear from their eyes. - Revelations 21:3-4
Today was International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. At 7pm, in each time zone, candles were lit to remember the lives of the little ones far too many of us have had to endure losing.
I started my day event with a visit to Zac's grave. I wrote him a note, left some fresh flowers and talked to him about all the things his brother is learning and doing. I blew kisses to heaven for all our babies, and headed home.
Tonight, at 7pm, I lit my candles. You see a bar of 7. For my four angels, for my twin sisters Catherine and Michelle, and the 7th candle for all the angels playing in heaven with my babies.
Then as I was getting Evan ready for bed, I looked out the window and saw the biggest, most colorful moon hanging over the cemetery. And it couldn't have been more fitting. I wish I could have captured the true beauty and color and depth of that moon in my picture. But, it was breath-taking!
Every day I remember my babies. Every day is remembrance day. But it is nice to know that there is an internationally recognized day for these sweet babies, regardless the stage of their growth or age. We don't have to "hide" our losses. We can "celebrate" together, all over the world, as baby-loss families. We are not alone.
So tonight, I remember each angel, not only of my own, but those who have touched my lives through their stories through other moms who have had the courage and love to share their child's story.
I remember with you.
Mommy loves you, Whisper, Jack, Ethan and Zac. You are in every breath I take, and every beat of my heart! You are always with me!
"God himself will be with them; he will wipe every tear from their eyes" - Revelations 21:3-4
You are not alone...and our children are NEVER forgotten!
Blessings to us all!
