I have no words to describe my overwhelming emotions at the response to my last post. Well, that is not entirely true...I can always find at least a few words... (Thus, the whole blog thing, right?)
I am so saddened to learn that so many of you friends have gone through this experience. There are so many beautiful angel babies in Heaven.
So many women from near and far sent me messages describing their experiences with miscarriage and what helped them through the rough days. So many women, in fact, that I am stock-piling resources, books, and prayers to guide me through.
I thank you.
A few resources from my amazing readers (friends):
Heaven is For Real (A Book)
Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence (A Book)
Hearts in Heaven Devotions (A Website with Devotions)
A children's prayer for comfort:
Do not fear, I am here,
And I love you, my dear.
Close your eyes and sleep tight,
For tomorrow will be bright.
All is well, dear child.
And...a quote that had me weeping on the couch during American Idol tonight...
"An angel in the book of life wrote down my baby's birth.
Then whispered as she closed the book "too beautiful for earth."
All of this wonderful guidance paired with words of love, friendship, and support was more than I could have ever imagined.
Thanks for being so awesome.
