Sweetly Broken, Wholly Surrendered

The day arrived.

My little ones due date came and went. Since it was winter when they died there was far too much snow on the ground to bury them. We decided to wait and bury them on their due date which was May.21 st and along with them the planting of a tree.

I hesitated on whether to show these...that is why it is a week later. If I offend anyone, I am sorry.

Each picture tells a story and has special meaning to me. It is how I needed to capture and remember this whole journey and its conclusion.

The new song(Sweetly Broken)playing on my playlist is the song of my heart these days. The words comfort and restore me...




































































































"At the cross You beckon me
You draw me gently to my knees, and I am
Lost for words, so lost in love,
I’m sweetly broken, wholly surrendered "



"In awe of the cross I must confess
How wondrous Your redeeming love and
How great is Your faithfulness"

When I first ran into your blog it was when you were still praying and believing that God would save the babies. A friend had posted it on facebook and asked everyone to pray. Immediately I began praying and starterd following this blog to see what would happen. I cry with you... and pray for you and your famliy. I know that you will all be together again one day, where the streets have no names, and we will all call out; Glory, Glory, to the Highest! No more pain! Halleljuah, no more death! I have a half brother (2 1/2) and a half sister (3 months) who tasted death long before I was born... I will know them, and love them there.
We simply have more to go home too! Come Lord Jesus!!!
