I wait for the LORD, my whole being waits,
and in his word I put my hope.
Carry each other’s burdens,
and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
So far this week has been filled with a lot of heart ache and waiting on the Lord.
The heart ache has not been my own
but heartbreak for some very special baby loss families
who are losing their little rainbow babies.
These families both lost their precious son & daughter
to anencephaly this past year.
We walked through the darkness side by side (and still do)
as we faced carrying our precious babies to term
knowing full well that they were never ours to keep,
but God's precious gifts to us
to care for for just a short while...
We all found out we were expecting again
within days of each other.
I was so moved at God's grace at work in each of us.
It is tempting to lose hope
and gain bitterness at a God who would allow such heartache
and to multiply.
I am tempted to cry out It's just not fair!!
I am tempted to question God,
but I know the Truth.
Part of me hates the truth,
at least the part of it that includes Satan.
And still, there is just one place
to take this grief and heartbreak.
Broken, I find myself at the foot of the cross,
I'm thinking I will just pitch a tent here. :)
Seriously though, please say a little prayer for these 2 families and all those trying so desperately to keep hope alive following so great a loss. I will be.
