Suffering and the Holidays

Many times as we approach the holiday season our minds can be filled with many wonderful memories and anticipation as we approach the special days that will be filled with family, friends and the many wonderful memories that will be made.

For those of us who have lost a little one this season can also remind us of the hurt and emptiness that our hearts feel as we know that our little one will not be apart of the coming holidays.

How can we move through these months and still have joy? How does the Lord want us to handle these hard emotions and feelings?

Carolyn Mahaney gives us a great reminder in this post she wrote titled "Rejoicing in Suffering at Christmas". Please click on this link and read her wise words for us all. It is our prayer that her wisdom will help guide you through the coming months.

Loving the God who Takes Your Child

Psalm 34:7, 8, 17-19
The angel of the Lord encamps
around those who fear him,
and delivers them.
Oh taste and see that the Lord is good!
Blessed is the man who takes
refuge in him! 

When the righteous cry for help,
the Lord hears
and delivers them out of all their troubles.
The Lord is near to the broken-hearted
and saves the crushed in spirit.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
but the Lord delivers him out of them all.

Today we have a 2 beautiful video clips to share with you. These video clips are about Ezra Blaize, a precious baby boy.

In the first clip his parents are sharing at his funeral about his 54 day life, sharing what they have learned through his life. They so beautifully share their trust in the Lord, where they find their comfort during this hard time, and what they have learned from his life.

In the second clip, his parents share more of Ezra's story and their hope in the Lord.

Please take a few minutes to watch these touching videos!

Pouring out my Heart......

I want to share a beautiful post with you today by Kara Chupp. You might remember that a few years back I shared one of Kara's posts with you.

I love and appreciate Kara and her beautiful faith and honesty. She shares her hurt and hesitancy to open up to the Lord. I think that anyone who has lost a baby can relate to this. Kara so beautifully brings us into the hospital room were her precious baby girl was dyeing.
