A Sad Weekend

It's been a sad holiday weekend here. After some spotting and then more bleeding, it was confirmed yesterday that I am in the process of miscarrying twins. I have a heavy heart, but I do know that "He heals the broken in heart, he bindeth up their wounds" Psalm 147:3. It's going to be ok, we're going to be ok, I'm going to be ok, even though right now I'm just so very sad.

I do have 7 absolutely incredible blessings to keep my mind very, very occupied through this time. I am so thankful for them as I am reminded what gifts they truly are. May I never take a single one of them for granted.

I am so very sorry to hear this. I have had several miscarriages, and it is so hard. It been several years now, and I still grieve for the ones I have lost, but I firmly believe they are safe in the arms of Jesus.
I will be praying for you.

I am so very sorry for your sorrow. I know what it is to lose a little one before it is ready for this world - and empathize with you - even as I pray for you - and you are right, it WILL be okay. I am thankful that you know the Lord with Whom your wee ones will be. Praying for your peace, comfort and complete healing (in body, mind and spirit).

when we lost our baby on november 5, 1998, almost six years ago someone gave
me a card with this poem and it has meant more to me that anything. so i
thought i would share it. the scripture on the front is Job 1:21 and inside
it says:
" I was thinking abut what's ahead for the baby. Can you imagine-it will be
taking its first steps on the streets of Heaven! Hannah was a mother who
certainly knows how special a little baby is. Perhaps she'll be the one who
will let it hold her finger as it takes those first staggering steps; and
maybe she will be the one to coax it into taking it first steps alone!
Perhaps Dorcas will see to it that its hems get let out, and that the
buttons are sewn on that growing child. And Joshua! Just think what it would
be like for a child to climb into his lap and hear-first hand- about the
battle of jericho!..
Maybe Petrer will take it fishing someday! It will never fall out of tree or
breaks it's leg, for there is no pain or tears there! It won;t be afraid of
the dark for there is no darkness there. The King of Kings, the Lord of
Lords, he is the very one who said, "let the little children come to me." I
expect there will be many a time when he himself will take that baby in his
lap and let it know a love that makes all other loves seem puny by contrast.
I wouldn't be surprised if the Heavenly Father keeps a few lollipops handy
for just such occasions....
And one day, you will be greeted with a " Hi Dad and Mom! I've got some of
the neatest things to show you; and some really fantastic people i can't
wait for you to meet."

I saw your post on the blog frog and wanted to come here to tell you how very sorry I am.

It doesn't matter how many other beautiful, healthy children we doesn't make the pain of losing our babies any easier.

I lost twins on Nov.24th at 14 weeks. I am still so broken hearted. I have had other miscarriages as well and yet this just doesn't get any easier.

I now have a peace that I know you will receive in time, but I believe our hearts will never be fully restored until we are once again united with our sweet little ones in heaven.

I was given a very precious, healing book as a gift. I just posted pictures of it on my blog. Maybe the photos will bring you some comfort as they have me.

Even though I don't know you, you are in my thoughts and prayers...this journey is oh,so very difficult.

Jesus, come close and wrap your arms around Ali's heart...
