Broken for Others

My heart is so broken for other mommies that know my pain!!! I know of a precious mommy that lost her first son to stillbirth a few days ago, and it has really got to me. I do not kow her personally, but to know the pain and agony that she is experiencing breaks my heart! I am praying for her and her family so much.

Today I found another blog with a mommy who has a precious baby girl with the same diagnosis as Janie Beth. Yet again, my heart broke. To know how she feels. To remember the feelings I had those weeks of carrying Janie Beth and knowing that she wouldn't make it.

There is another precious lady that is carrying twins, one of which passed away 14 weeks ago. She is so close to delivery, but is trying to make it as long as possible to allow the other little girl to grow even more. To prepare a funeral and a nursery at one time is excruciating!

I had a precious friend that had a rough delivery. To know that she could have felt my pain brings me to tears!!! Everything is just fine, but I never want any of my friends to feel this pain.

Pain will be with us until Jesus comes. Only when we get to Heaven will there be no more tears, pain, and sickness. What a glorious day that will be!!!!! May you all join me in praying for these precious women? Will you pray for the peace that passes understanding to fill them, and for God to write their faith through these difficult days. May God be glorified through their journeys.

May the Lord bless you and keep you.
May He make His face to shine upon you
And be gracious to You.
May He lift up His countenance upon you
And give you peace.
Numbers 6:22-24
