Our Little Angel Baby

"The LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD." ~Job 1:21


Five weeks ago I was sitting on my bed listening to Mom tell me that the Lord had blessed our family with another little one...my prayer had been answered! I was thrilled.

I prayed for the baby often. I thought of how wonderful it would be to have a baby in the house again. I pondered the miracle of how God so perfectly knits together each child in the womb...I pictured that tiny little face with the most precious little toes...

And now I choose to Praise the Lord for our little Angel baby ~ who instead of spending life on earth, went straight to Glory; to dance at Jesus' feet. I am grateful that the Lord chose to bless our family with a ninth gift; one that He didn't have to give but He did. I rejoiced in this gift for over five weeks and I will continue rejoicing because I know that this baby has a wonderful and perfect part of God's plan! 


Thank you Lord...please tell our little Angel that I love it and I can't wait to meet it in Heaven <3

Dear Jenna, I read this with tears. What a precious attitude you have. What a precious gift He gave you. Please let your whole family know how much I love them and that I am praying for all of you, each by name and position in the family.

Soli Deo Gloria!

Jenna, I am so sorry. I am SO glad, to see someone accepting the Lord's will like you though. It is a great encouragement. I have been through a few things lately that have challenged my faith, but I didn't take them anywhere near as well as you. I know it's hard, but the Lord is going to bless you for your faith.
Blessings,
~Rebecca

Jenna,

I am so sorry to hear of this. :(

Two years ago, I lost a sibling in September before I even knew I had another one. Last year, two days short of being exactly one year since the loss of the first baby, we lost another one.

However, reading this post, I realize for the first time that it is not a loss. I still have nine younger siblings, but I can only see seven for the time being. I cannot wait to meet my other siblings. :)

I will be praying for your family. Even though it's not a "loss", it is still hard.

Love and prayers,
~Hannah Grace

I am so sorry to hear about the recent loss of your sibling. I know what you are going though. My mom lost three of her kids before birth, but your attitude is amazing. Always remember that God is here for you. I am praying for you and your family. I know God will heal your heart. :) He is an amazing Savior reaching and spreading His loving arms around you. Stay strong.
