He Gives and Takes Away

A part of my heart walks around outside my body. Another part will soon be laid to rest in a grave with many tiny hearts that did not make it.

"Naked I came from my mother's womb, 
       and naked I will depart. 

       The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; 
       may the name of the LORD be praised."

Job 1:21

Glory Baby by Watermark

Glory Baby, You slipped away
As fast as we could say baby, baby
You were growing, what happened Dear,
You disappeared on us baby, baby
Heaven will hold you before we do
Heaven will keep you safe
Until we're home with you
Until we're home with you

We miss you everyday
Miss you in every way
But we know there's a day
When we will hold you, we will hold you
And you'll kiss our tears away
When we're home to stay
We can't wait for the day
When we will see you, we will see you
But baby let sweet Jesus hold you 
‘Til mom and dad can hold you
You'll just have heaven before we do
You'll just have heaven before we do

Sweet little baby, it's hard to understand it
Cause we are hurting, we are hurting
But there is healing
And we know we're stronger people
Through the growing and in knowing
All things work together for our good
And God works his purposes
Just like he said he would
Just like he said he would


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

Oh Stephanie, my heart hurts for you. I am praying for you and Denbigh that God would comfort you as you grieve.

When we lost our first little one this scripture ministered to me.

"Praise be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God." 2 Corinthians 1:3-4

I read this on a friend's blog this morning:

Yet I am not alone, for the Father is with me." John 16:32

In Jesus' hour of sorrow, His confidence was that His Father was with Him. This is too wonderful to comprehend.

thanks for sharing your heart with so many. Although we may not ever understand the things like this the Lord allows, I know He entrusts you with suffering because you continue to honor His heart in it. We love you guys and are praying for you.
