Glory Babies

I just found out that two of my friends have lost their babies. My oldest friend (I've known her longer than any other friend, I mean, not that she is old) lost her baby in November at 34 weeks, her baby was half of a pair of twins. My other friend just lost hers in between 6-8 weeks. My heart grieves with them and for them right now. I would have done anything for these friends not to have joined that exclusive "club" of those of us who have lost our babies.

Please pray for both of my friends and their families.

Glory Baby by Watermark

Glory baby you slipped away as fast as we could say baby…baby..
You were growing, what happened dear?
You disappeared on us baby…baby..
Heaven will hold you before we do
Heaven will keep you safe until we’re home with you…
Until we’re home with you…

Miss you everyday
Miss you in every way
But we know there’s a
day when we will hold you
We will hold you
You’ll kiss our tears away
When we’re home to stay
Can’t wait for the day when we will see you
We will see you
But baby let sweet Jesus hold you
‘till mom and dad can hold you…
You’ll just have heaven before we do
You’ll just have heaven before we do

Sweet little babies, it’s hard to
understand it ‘cause we’re hurting
We are hurting
But there is healing
And we know we’re stronger people through the growing
And in knowing-
That all things work together for our good
And God works His purposes just like He said He would…
Just like He said He would…

I can’t imagine heaven’s lullabies
and what they must sound like
But I will rest in knowing, heaven is your home
And it’s all you’ll ever know…all you’ll ever know…

My love and tears to you both. I would wrap you each in a warm hug, if I could.
I am sure your little ones are surrounded by much family and they are playing with my Jacob, passing the time until we can all be together.

And yet, there is still reason to celebrate... the other twin, Katie, is doing well. A blessed welcome to the world, little one.

:( I'm so sorry about your friends' losses. I don't even know them and I also grieve for them.

I love that Watermark song! I heard about it not long after we lost our little one. Such a powerful song.

Please tell your long time friend that I am thinking of her and her family.
