Be Still My Soul

I have hope that our baby is in Heaven. Our sweet little one will never know sorrow, pain, loneliness, doubt, fear, hurt...will never even be tired or hungry. Our baby will only know joy, peace, perfect communion with God and will only be loved perfectly and completely.
Although my pain is strong, so is my hope and my joy. I am thankful that God used us as instruments to give this baby life and that now that life is full.

In God's Providence, our church sang this song Sunday night:

1. Be still, my soul; the Lord is on thy side;
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;
Leave to thy God to order and provide;
In every change He faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul; thy best, thy heavenly, Friend
Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

2. Be still, my soul; thy God doth undertake
To guide the future as He has the past.
Thy hope, thy confidence, let nothing shake;
All now mysterious shall be bright at last.
Be still, my soul; the waves and winds still know
His voice who ruled them while He dwelt below.

3. Be still, my soul, though dearest friends depart
And all is darkened in the vale of tears;
Then shalt thou better know His love, His heart,
Who comes to soothe thy sorrows and thy fears.
Be still, my soul; thy Jesus can repay
From His own fullness all He takes away.

4. Be still, my soul; the hour is hastening on
When we shall be forever with the Lord,
When disappointment, grief, and fear are gone,
Sorrow forgot, love's purest joys restored.
Be still, my soul; when change and tears are past,
All safe and blessed we shall meet at last.

  1. I understand your pain - our first pregnancy ended in loss. How awesome it is to have a relationship with our Heavenly Father and to know He guides our every step! It's wonderful how He sends us comfort in unexpected ways at times like this too!
    Praying for you and your beautiful family,
