|The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.|
My niece and nephew lose their precious baby boy two days after cradling him for nine months in her womb. Our hearts break with them, and we know there are no words we can give to glue the chasm in their hearts back together.
When the dream of a life ebbs away, the hole creates a vacuum that siphons our lives with it.
And when it seems absolutely inconceivable that one day again we will sense sweetness in the silence, make melody in music, look high for rainbows, seek pleasure in public, find faith for the future, and pursue purpose in Your plans, You choose to continue to heal our hearts' holes.
When there seems to be no reason to recall yesterdays, plans for tomorrow, or even remember that today is Friday or Sunday or Wednesday, you plant purpose.
The fact that You are not frozen still like we are by our heartbreak,
that we are not condemned by our flowing tears that weep of doubt and "whys,"
that we are not abandoned because of our throat choked voice harnessed by anger and fear,
that our reality is not made complete with the hope we cannot fathom,
but that You hear the numb prayers that our unstitched hearts whisper,
is evidence that GOD IS STILL WORKING!
In our heads and hearts, we know that we are always in God's hands, but when the control of this daily life we think we are holding is stripped away and everything seems to fall apart, then what remains can clearly only be the strength of His hands that sustain us and that remind us that we are held, rocked, followed, watched, and cared for.
We continue to hold Hannah and Chris tight with arms bound together in love. We know that it is not our arms that will keep them feeling safe but His love that they begin to feel from our embrace.
When everything falls apart, we hold you strong, and He loves you still.
|ASHER, WE LOVED YOU THE MOMENT WE KNEW YOU---- from all your family|
