|beautiful glory baby...|
Friday, March 30, 2012 marked the 9th month since this sweet, perfect baby left this earth.
I knew it was coming but I really didn't think it would knock my feet out from under me.
I'm sad. I have mad moments. I have what-if moments. But then I'm reminded by that small voice of the Holy Spirit that Jack was in His care from start to earthly finish and beyond. We prayed fervently for this baby. I didn't do anything any differently than I did with my pregnancies with Will, Ethan, Melanie, Levi and Molly...why would I ever imagine that this birth would be any different?
Yes, we take into consideration that if we'd been in a hospital, they'd have noticed his slowing heart rate but we've never done that before so why would we now? Babies also die in hospitals.
Babies also die with NO EXPLANATION under complete medical care. even though pregnancy is NOT a medical condition.
Jack Oliver Young, you were a borrowed gift...you were not ours to keep. We PRAISE the Lord and Creator of the Heavens and the Earth for the time we had with you. You have changed my life, our lives, for the better.
For the lives you have touched without even opening your beautiful eyes this side of my skin.
I am so sad that I will never hold you again down here but I just have peace that I will see you again and I will get to hold you for eternity.
Clinging to that hope today.
Happy ninth month birthday with Jesus, sweetie pie. I love you more than ever. but you know that.
We're planning a beautiful little FIRST birthday with Jesus Christ party for Jack. Complete with cake, balloons, tears, music and celebration.
