There’s no other way to start this, other than to just come right out and say it. . .
Baby Peek-a-Boo Peanut is with Jesus.
Jim and I had our third ultrasound this week and the doctor was unable to find a heartbeat. While there are many emotions we are feeling, the one keeping us upright is that of peace. Peace that God has a plan. Peace that Peek-A-Boo is playing hide-n-seek with Jesus. Peace that God’s timing is perfect.
Jim received a text from a dear friend that has been at the forefront of my mind as we deal with this unexpected loss. . .
“It is hard to know what to say other than your baby will be loved by Jesus. “Let the little children come to me for the Kingdom of heaven belongs to them”. Although this is comforting to know, there is no way to ease your and Mandy’s sadness right now. My great Aunt Millie used to say that God calls souls when he wants them for a higher purpose and that when he takes away he gives back.“ (Thanks Kim!)
We are clinging to the promises of our Father in Heaven. . .
The KINGDOM belongs to the children. . .
God has a HIGHER purpose for us all! . . .
and when He takes away, He GIVES BACK!
Yes, we’ve told Mercedes. She is confused, sad, and happy all at the same time. (Sounds like what I’m feeling). She and Jesus are tight! So I’m sure she’s also jealous of her “Baby sister” getting to play with Jesus.
If it wasn’t for our faith, I’m not sure how we would have been able to explain to our daughter what has happened. Some would criticize us for telling her about the baby so soon. . . but we won’t regret it for one minute as long as we live. What a BIG lesson in faith and God and where our eternal home truly is! Nope, it’s not fair that she’s learning this lesson so early, but life sucks! It’s hard! And the sooner we can learn how to cope the better off we are.
Please pray for healing as our hearts are broken.
Please pray for continued peace that passes all understanding!
There are many more stories to share and thoughts to write.
But for now, it’s time to. . . take a nap! 🙂
We love you all!!
Thank you for your unending support!!
