I am so grateful that you are here. The Lord has made it very clear that this is something He wants me to do in this season. And if there’s anything that I want to teach my growing toddler Abigail by way of example it’s- obedience. So here I am, Lord!
This blog was carved out of a place in my heart from a loved baby that I will never know this side of Heaven. This has been the darkest time in the life of my family thus far, no question; but it’s also been a season of deep joy that comes from the nearness of God. It is so true that He is near to the brokenhearted (Psalm 34:18), and His nearness provides the sight to see the blessings that I missed before- and there is joy. We are also finding great peace in knowing that our unborn baby will be used for His glory. I pray that this blog is a space where we are more engaged in the joy and peace of Christ than the brokenheartedness caused by a life gone too soon in my limited, human mind’s eye. However, I am finding now that you can’t have the former without the latter. There is no joy and peace without sorrow and brokenheartedness. I am truly thankful that the Lord allowed me to experience this tension of the two so that I can experience Him in a way I never have before. My angel baby has changed my life, and I pray that in some way because of Him you will be changed too.
