A sad time.

Sorry for the long absence.

This week started off on a tragic note. My cousin, Jeannie, gave birth prematurely to her baby boy yesterday, April 20th. This is the same cousin who lost her baby last year on April 14th. My heart breaks for her and all the suffering she is going through.

RIP Baby Jacob. You and your brother Matthew are angels in heaven. May you bring comfort to your mother, who is grieving you both.

Hug your children tight, friends, and be thankful that they are here with you.

I'm so sorry to hear that, Christina. I miscarried my third child in my second trimester, and that was very hard. I can only imagine how much more painful it would be lose a baby after going through the whole pregnancy, and giving birth, especially to lose two children.

Aww, I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of Baby Jacob. I can't even imagine how hard that is for your cousin and to go through it a 2nd time. May she seek God during this difficult time and he gives her some comfort and assurance that He is in control of all things and that she will get through it. That has got to be the most difficult things and one can't help but wonder why. But in a way, her baby is perfect, sinless, and never had to endure any pain, hurt or disappointment that one deals with in this world and he is now in HEAVEN but then you wonder of what he would have been and done in life, how he would've looked at a certain age, etc.... We just have to trust God during times like these. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
