Mourning... and now Dancing!



"You have turned for me my mourning into dancing"
Psalm 30:11


It was 3 years ago today that we birthed our son, Jeremiah.
Stillborn.
 4 months early.
He had been in my womb for 20 weeks.
He weighed 6.5 oz.
We held him.
I didn't want to let go.
He was beautiful and perfect in my eyes.
And in the eyes of the Lord.
What a privilege and honor to be his mommy!
I miss him.
I think of him often.
I wonder.
I love.


It was difficult.
It was painful.
It was in my suffering that Jesus entered my sadness.
He never left me.
He grabbed my hand and helped me to stand.
He asked me to dance.
And dance, we did!
Sweetness.


"You have turned for me my mourning into dancing"
Psalm 30:11




"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you:
Before you were born I sanctified you;
I ordained you a prophet to the nations."
Jeremiah 1:5


We love you Jeremiah!

Sending big hugs your way-thank you for sharing this with us. I can't even imagine how difficult this what but what a blessing to know he is with Jesus. If you haven't read "Heaven is for real" you should-it brings such comfort.
I have one grandbaby with Jesus and can't wait to meet him.
Lots of tender love to you.
