The Promise of Life

A little over a year ago, I lost a little child.  A child that never had a chance to see the light of day, but that the Lord has prepared to go straight to glory.  A child that we will never know on this earth, but has joined his 3 other siblings, awaiting us in heaven.  It was a week of enjoyment with the family on vacation, but filled with sorrow and pain as well.  Darkness, depression, and yet clinging to faith the the Lord would change our mourning for joy one day…

I am over at guest posting today over at Raising Homemakers.  Join me over there for the rest of my post!

  1. This touched my heart Jenny.
    We also lost a child.
    I remember reading this quote around the 1 year mark and feeling how true it is:
    “Joy is protected from being flippant by steady sorrow.
    Sorrow is protected from being fatal by steady joy.”
    –John Piper
    Rejoicing with you in your joy.
    And understanding that joy…can be mingled with sorrow.

  2. Jenny,

    Beautiful. Praying for your peace as I know too well (not even having lost a child, but walking with several close friends who have) the fear that can overtake you.
