a while away

I feel like I have said these words so often lately.

Pray for my friends.

They are hurting... deep, gut-wrenching, can't stop crying kind of hurt.

Lauren and Scott said goodbye to baby Michael late last night.

He is with Jesus.

and my Caden.

I have cried all day long today. Can't stop.

I told a friend earlier today,that although I have been where Lauren is, I still have no words.  Only hugs, prayers and Jesus gets you through.

But mostly Jesus.

I hurt for Lauren and Scott. I remember the hurt... the ache of loss.  The Caden shaped void in my life.
Now they have a Michael shaped void.
The only thing that fills a void like that is HOPE.

I will see Caden again..I just have to wait awhile.
Michael is just a while away now too.

Maybe they are together... giggling at their silly mama's who  have no idea the wonderfulness that is their life.
Because they are alive...
SO alive.

just little a while away.

16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
17 Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.
18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.
{1 Thess 4:16-17}

Please pray for Lauren and Scott... they are in desperate need of your prayers. Leave a comment here or better yet... hop on over to Lauren's blog... see pictures of her precious son, Michael...and and leave a comment there.

Oh Lauren my heart aches for you and Scott. Know that your precious Michael is with Jesus now and that one sweet day you will see and hold your precious boy again. What a glorious day that will be! We are praying for you and your family as you remember your beautiful baby boy. -Rachel Cole-

I am praying for you... I KNOW what it is - my daughter lost her first baby and I still shiver at the pain of the loss...But Jesus is really magnanimous and loving and caring - a year later my daughter gave birth to twin girls, now nine...
