Our present joy

Even in my darkest hours, I am provided with little rays of sunshine.

And that smile has softened my heart, focused my thoughts, warmed my soul and reminded me that we grieve because we love. We love so very much, and that is not gone from our hearts.

  1. Dana, I just wanted to let you know that since I found your blog a couple of weeks ago I subsribed via feeds and have been praying for you. My whole family prays for you and your family. I wanted to encourage you to pour out your heart here, including the raw grief. (not that you needed my permission 😉 It totally ministers to me, gives me focus for prayer for you and really does feel like a privilege to ‘be going through this’ with you, in a very small way.

    Your heart is so very precious, the emotions you share so raw, and your continual focus on the Lord and the blessings He has given you is a beauty to behold.

    God bless your day. I will comment as the Lord leads, but know that I am reading and praying!

    Relentlessly Pursuing,

  2. What a gift! Thank God for him. The other kids ar disctractions and sweet and fun, but somehow a baby is different. they don’t have anything to offer but themselves. Praying for you always…

  3. He is a joy – what a blessing. I’ve always said nothing is better than a baby’s smile & laugh. (And Micah is pretty cute!!)

    So glad you are able to continue to breastfeed and that it helps your grief. I am blessed this year to be pumping extra milk for a premie girl born a few weeks after my son. Her twin brother only lived 13 days and due to the stress of the early delivery and his struggles the mother never had a full milk supply. I’ve said this year I have a breastmilk ministry (this family is not believers). It seems to me that the only thing worse than losing a child would be not knowing that you would see that child again in heaven. Anyway, your comment just made me think about all the wonderful benefits of nursing. =)
