The Post in Which We Remember
As some of you know, our family is larger than what you see in a photograph of us. It's not just Russ, C.C., & Damaris.
Because you see, three of our children have preceded us in their journey to Heaven. I tell our story in more depth in this blog post. Jordan Taylor, Micah Jayden, & Noah Avrey are our precious little ones who have seen Heaven before us.
Today, October 15th, is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day. So on this day, and every day, we remember Jordan, Micah, & Noah. And if you have walked a similar journey, we remember your precious child(ren) with you.
Glory baby you slipped away as fast as we could say baby...baby...
You were growing, what happened dear?
You disappeared on us baby...baby...
Heaven will hold you before we do
Heaven will keep you safe until we're home with you...
Until we're home with you...
Miss you everyday, Miss you in every way
But we know there's a day when we will hold you
We will hold you
You'll kiss our tears away, When we're home to stay
Can't wait for the day when we will see you
We will see you
But baby let sweet Jesus hold you 'till mom and dad can hold you...
You'll just have heaven before we do, You'll just have heaven before we do
Sweet little babies, it's hard to understand it 'cause we're hurting
We are hurting, But there is healing
And we know we're stronger people through the growing
And in knowing - That all things work together for our good
And God works His purposes just like He said He would...
Just like He said He would...
I can't imagine, Heaven's lullabies, and what they must sound like
But I rest in knowing, that Heaven is your home
And it's all you'll ever know...
