"Mommy please don't cry... There are no tears in Heaven."
Of course, once I cracked open the book the tears came freely.
"I met Jesus today Mommy. He cradled me in His big, strong arms. He made me feel so happy inside."
"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these."
The book is full of the most exquisite pictures. Looking at them reached down into the very pit of my pain and fulfilled a visual longing I had. Not even really realizing that the longing was there.
The very longing of my heart...to once again be united with my little ones, to have our hearts beat as one.
I know babies that you will wait right there safe and sound enjoying the splendor of heaven, being cared for by the angels and being loved fully by our Heavenly Father.
And I will continue to long for you every day and live in expectation of when I can love on you and care for you like my mamas' heart so desperately wants too.
