Our Simple Pleasures

celebrating life one moment at a time

April 1, 2008, we lost our baby #2 pregnancy.  Worst. April. Fools’. Joke. Ever.  There is still just a funk that hangs over me on this day.  My brain still thinks a lot this day on what might  have been.   God has reasons for things, and I can respect that, but that doesn’t take away the hurt.  Even 8 years later.

My good friend Rachel gave me a CD with this song on it a few weeks later.  Takes a few times to get through it with a box of Kleenex, but now, every time I hear it I find comfort in the fact that our family has our very own little guardian angel up there looking out for us.  Punky is convinced that baby was a girl.  Maybe.  We won’t know until we meet her.  Until then, I will continue to count my blessings I have right here on Earth with me.  Punky and Kirby, and Hubby, of course.  Here’s the song… grab some Kleenex, but it’s totally worth giving it a listen!

Glory Baby by Watermark.   <—–Click on this to hear the song.

Glory baby you slipped away as fast as we could say baby…baby..
You were growing, what happened dear?
You disappeared on us baby…baby..
Heaven will hold you before we do
Heaven will keep you safe until we’re home with you…
Until we’re home with you…

Miss you everyday
Miss you in every way
But we know there’s a
day when we will hold you
We will hold you
You’ll kiss our tears away
When we’re home to stay
Can’t wait for the day when we will see you
We will see you
But baby let sweet Jesus hold you
‘till mom and dad can hold you…
You’ll just have heaven before we do
You’ll just have heaven before we do

Sweet little babies, it’s hard to
understand it ‘cause we’re hurting
We are hurting
But there is healing
And we know we’re stronger people through the growing
And in knowing-
That all things work together for our good
And God works His purposes just like He said He would…
Just like He said He would…

I can’t imagine heaven’s lullabies
and what they must sound like
But I will rest in knowing, heaven is your home
And it’s all you’ll ever know…all you’ll ever know…

Gave extra hugs and kisses to Punky and Kirby today.   I thank God for them every single day.

Good night!
