It’s been a while…..

March 8, 2010 at 11:13 pm (Family, God, Life, pregnancy loss) (, , , , , , , , )

I’m going to start back slowly.  I think I have family who would love to read and keep up with what is going on in our lives.  After the last entry, I haven’t really had anything to say.  I suppose I should update all the “strangers” who might happen to read.  We lost the baby.  One month after I found out I was pregnant I had a miscarriage.  It has been hard, but I know that I will see our little one in heaven one day.  Dates and milestones are not far from my thoughts……..I would be 6 months now.  I am wishing for more, always wishing.

On a more positive note,  I saw these guys in concert last night.  Lord, give me a revelation!

Rejoicing in the Here and Now(pregnancy mentioned)

October 7, 2009 at 12:03 pm (Children, Family, God, pregnancy) (, , , , , )

I just got this happy thought in my head, “I can’t wait to feel this baby move.”  And then right behind it, “no, no, don’t get your hopes up”.  But as I sit here, I refuse to back down and give up any of this joy I am feeling!  I know that I belong to that stinky non-naive’ club where everything that can go wrong runs through our head!  I don’t care!  If something negative happens, well, I’ll just deal with it then!  This happiness and joy is just bubbling up inside of me.  This can’t be bad!  My mind says, “but what about the statistics against you right now?”  I say it’s a MIRACLE that I’m even pregnant at my age, so statistics be damned!  I will rejoice in this gift that God has given me yet again!

My Memory of You

September 6, 2008 at 12:17 am (Children, Family, God, Life) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

My Memory of You

Your handsome face,
that’s what I see.
Your perfect little body,
so beautiful to me.

I remember holding you close,
all wrapped in your blanket.
I didn’t want to put you down,
I couldn’t even think it.

You seemed so very fragile,
my tiny little man.
I was so afraid to kiss you
or hold your precious hand.

Lovingly I unwrapped you,
I counted your fingers and toes.
Just like I said before,
perfect….down to your nose.

So I lovingly covered you,
all snuggled and warm.
I hugged you to my heart
to keep you from harm.

But it was way too late
for all my loving care.
God had you in heaven
and all I had were tears.

I remember all the love I felt.
I remember just holding you there.
I remember feeling so numb
and thinking that life was so unfair.

Your handsome face
that’s what I see.
Your perfect little body
so beautiful to me.

Psalm 139:13-16:

13For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.  14I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.  15My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.  16Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them
