On Friday, my little great granddaughter Lillian Isabella 'Lily Belle' was stillborn. She came two months early and has left many broken hearted family members behind.
In a world where many babies are not wanted and basically trashed, it seems so unfair that one little child so very wanted should be taken. None should perish and all should be wanted and loved.
My brain is flooded with 'why' questions and I know most will never be answered.
If there is any sort of consolation it is in knowing that our Lord and Savior is holding little Lily Belle in his arms right now. We will be with her again, and it will be for all eternity. I am so thankful for this I can't even express it.
Your prayers for my family, especially Lily's mama and daddy and grandparents are needed. Thank you
I know time does not heal, but we will learn to live with yet another deep scar. Only with the Lord's loving compassion can we survive these horrible times.
Today I am taking my youngest daughter to the hospital for gall bladder surgery. Prayers are certainly welcome here too.
I apologize that my post today is so miserable. I guess we all have these times.
Thank you all.

Oh Bev I am so sorry. Your post brought tears to my eyes. No, we never understand at times like this but we still KNOW in whom we have believed and I know you do!!! I will ask both the prayer blog and my Tuesday night prayer group to lift you and yours up in prayer. I am so very, very sorry :o(
((hugs)) Wish I was there to hug you in person.

Bev, you have my deepest sympathies and my prayers for you and your family. What a darling name they chose for her. Sounds like an angel's name for sure. There are no real answers-only faith to turn to. May your faith help you through.

I will also say a prayer for your daughter. And you-take care of yourself!

Hi Bev, I'm part of Susan's prayer blog and the Tuesday night prayer group. I'm am so sorry for the sadness your family is going through right now. We will definately be holding your family up before the Lord tonight in prayer.

Before He formed her in her mother's womb, He knew her. (Jeremiah 1:5)

Lily Belle will be able to say she has always known the Lord.

P.S. the word verification that came up for me to type in on this comment was "rescu".

Blogger Kathy said...

Our own hearts are broken as we hear this sad news. Just know that we are there with you in prayer. Jesus loves that precious baby girl, and I imagine she is lovely as can be. With love and prayers, from Kathy and Danny, part of Susan's prayer group.

Oh, MM...I'm so so sorry to hear about your darling little granddaughter. I'm typing this with tears in my eyes...to lose such a little one is heartbreaking. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family as well as your daughter.

You're having a sad time at the moment. As Mother Theresa said "God never gives us any more than we can bear." Then added, "I just wish He didn't trust me so much." I guess you must feel like that, too.

Ah Mate I am so sorry to hear you are hurting. Hugs all around from me. What else can I say.

Blogger Kerri said...

Bev, your flowers are looking absolutely beautiful. What a spirit lifter they must be for you at this sad time.
Your Paul II Clematis looks just like my Carnaby. So sorry the deer ate it. How frustrating for you. They are such a nuisance.
Those tiny blue flowers are gorgeous. I love blue too.
May God's loving arms comfort you and give you peace.
Hugs xoxo
