Our Son

What a wonderful testimony. It was quite touching. My wife and I miscarried our first baby (we've had 2 boys since), and that was hard enough. I can't begin to imagine being in your or your husband's shoes through that. It makes me choke up a little bit just thinking about watching one of my boys die right outside the womb. Thank you so much for sharing. God truly is great and merciful.

Thanks be to God He is ever with us when we go through the dark valleys. My parents lost three children, two still born, one lived for about an hour and a half. Even now I can't fully comprehend the pain. Praise God you were not alone in this.

 

Praying for you and yours and looking forward to next April!

Bzmomo7, your testimony made my heart heavy and I am beginning to cry.  What an ordeal for you and your family.  God bless you and your family. God took a horrible situation and turned it around into a miracle child.  May your pregancy be blessed.  :preggo:  

 

John reminded me of something in his post.  I have an older couple that goes to my church.  They just buried their second child.  Thankfully, both girls were saved; however, that doesn't lesson the pain any.  We have been praying for them.  I can't help but think of my only child, who is 22.  He is a wonderful young man.  I just can't imagine how I would go on living if I would lose him.  I have been thinking about that since this couple's daughter's funeral.  *sigh*  My prayers are with you bzmomo7... that our Lord Jesus Christ blesses you, your husband and family with a healthy child.

Thank you.  I'm looking forward to April, too. :D   My sister had a stillbirth and another baby she had died from an infection when he was 7 days old.  She has only one living child.  My husband's parents lost their firstborn son in stillbirth.  The hospitals back then never let his mother grieve, and they quickly whisked him away and she did not get to hold him and they and the family attempted to keep her from going to the funeral....unsuccessfully, thankfully.  I can't imagine losing a child when you expected all to be well.  I knew for five months about our son's condition.  So, we had time to prepare to some degree.  Not that it was better, just different I guess in that we could grieve some ahead of time.  I could never have got through it without the Lord.  His strength was the only thing that kept me going, many times I just would tell myself that I'd just take it one day to a time, and ask God to just get me through the day putting one foot in front of the other.  There was so much uncertainty.  I used to be a terrible worry-wart.  I won't say it is gone completely, but through it all, the Lord worked on my heart and my trust in Him a lot.  There were many times I wished my husband would just tell me that it would be alright, (I was thinking, lie to me, please!!) but I didn't tell him that.  I knew that only God could make it alright, and He, literally, was the only One who could give me reassurance, and the only one who made me feel better when I was down.

I read this to my wife (through the tears) and she cried like a baby.

Though we had 4 of the 5 almost die at one time or another and lost one through influence of family, we never lost one through death.

 

Thanks for allowing the God of all comfort to comfort you and your family that you might be able to comfort them that are in any trouble with the comfort wherewith you were comforted of God.

I had a paper folded up on top of my printer, as I moved it as I was going to run off our church bulletins I unfolded it reading it, I though maybe some of you would enjoy it, or maybe some of you've already read it.

 

A Blue Rose
 
Having four visiting family members, my wife was very busy, so I offered to go to the store for her to get some needed items, which included light bulbs, paper towels, trash bags, detergent and Clorox. So off I went.
 
I scurried around the store, gathered up my goodies and headed for the checkout counter, only to be blocked in the narrow aisle by a young man who appeared to be about sixteen-years-old. I wasn't in a hurry, so I patiently waited for the boy to realize that I was there. This was when he waved his hands excitedly in the air and declared in a loud voice, "Mommy, I'm over here."
 
It was obvious now, he was mentally challenged and also startled as he turned and saw me standing so close to him, waiting to squeeze by. His eyes widened and surprise exploded on his face as I said, "Hey Buddy, what's your name?"
 
"My name is Denny and I'm shopping with my mother," he responded proudly.
 
"Wow," I said, "that's a cool name; I wish my name was Denny, but my name is Steve."
 
"Steve, like Stevarino?" he asked. "Yes," I answered. "How old are you Denny?"
 
"How old am I now, Mommy?" he asked his mother as she slowly came over from the next aisle.
 
"You're fifteen-years-old Denny; now be a good boy and let the man pass by."
 
I acknowledged her and continued to talk to Denny for several more minutes about summer, bicycles and school. I watched his brown eyes dance with excitement, because he was the center of someone's attention. He then abruptly turned and headed toward the toy section.
 
Denny's mom had a puzzled look on her face and thanked me for taking the time to talk with her son. She told me that most people wouldn't even look at him, much less talk to him.
 
I told her that it was my pleasure and then I said something I have no idea where it came from, other than by the prompting of the Holy Spirit. I told her that there are plenty of red, yellow, and pink roses in God's Garden; however, "Blue Roses" are very rare and should be appreciated for their beauty and distinctiveness. You see, Denny is a Blue Rose and if someone doesn't stop and smell that rose with their heart and touch that rose with their kindness, then they've missed a blessing from God.
 
She was silent for a second, then with a tear in her eye she asked, "Who are you?"
 
Without thinking I said, "Oh, I'm probably just a dandelion, but I sure love living in God's garden."
 
She reached out, squeezed my hand and said, "God bless you!" and then I had tears in my eyes.
 
May I suggest, the next time you see a BLUE ROSE, don't turn your head and walk off. Take the time to smile and say Hello.
 
Why? Because, by the grace of GOD, this mother or father could be you. This could be your child, grandchild, niece or nephew. What a difference a moment can mean to that person or their family.
 
From an old dandelion!
