1 Month Ago…

Our baby’s Heaven Birthday was one month ago today.  4 weeks and 1 day ago I felt the baby move.  And the very next day our world came crashing down on us.  It is so surreal to think about what we have been through the past month and the fact that we have been without our sweet baby for the same amount of time.  In some ways it seems like the time has flown by and in other ways it seems like it has been the longest month of my life.  Today, although I am still so sad, I choose to be joyful that my baby has been with Jesus for an entire month.  I choose to place my hope in the Lord and the promise that I will be there one day too.  I choose to trust that our Heavenly Father is holding me and guiding my steps as I go through my day today and every day.  I choose to believe that there will be better days ahead.  I choose to have faith that “in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” Romans 8:28.

  1. I can't believe a month has passed. I still can't believe this has happened. I'm sad with you Lisa. Choosing with you to praise God for your precious little one that is with Him in Heaven.

  4. It's neat that you got to feel the baby move before you lost him. You have such a great perspective on life! I know it can't be easy going through this but I would imagine it's much easier with God as your comfort. Praying for you!

  5. i am so inspired by your attitude, and by the strength of your faith -- continuing to pray for you and your husband, and for the "plans (He) has for you, plans to give you a hope and a future."

  6. So powerful.... I can't believe it has been a month. You are amazing. I love your emphasis on 'choosing'. And I believe that is how we should all focus our lives, by 'choosing' that today will be better. Even I am guilty of getting caught up in my misery. Thank you for being an instrument of God and speaking His wisdom to all of us.

  9. Continue to Choose FAITH and HOPE and always allow him to Direct your steps. I had to remind myself many times of these things over the past 15 months. Often times it was not easy and sometimes I would fall off the wagon, but would quickly get back on, as "he" was my only constant.

    I learned to praise him in the storm...and when I was able to do that I started healing.

    Like you, I know that I have a child in Heaven who is healthy, happy and whole and that soothes my heart.

    My heart aches for you on so many levels and I continue to hold you close and pray for you. I call you by name Lisa and I KNOW "he" hears me, as he always hears our cries.

    Much Love to you

  10. Lisa, you are such an inspiration! I remember when I first read your post a month ago and the way I wept for you and your husband. Thank you for being so real about your faith, sharing the good and the not so good times with us.

    I've been watching this event and just wanted to share this video with you. It's really powerful!
