Gabriel 2005

We’ve had 3 miscarriages over the years.

The first one was 11 years ago this week, February 19.

Read about Miscarriage, Mass and Music on my little blog I Blog Jesus

and read these comforting words from Madeline to another mother experiencing the loss of her baby.

They comfort me too.

I know you had dreams of holding him close, seeing his smile, holding his little hand as he took his first steps, sitting him on your lap and telling him all the wonderful things about God, but He had a different plan. I hope you find comfort, one day, in knowing that you have a beautiful, perfect little boy in heaven who is now taking care of your family until you are able to join him, and that God instead, has your little boy on His lap and is telling him the wonderful things about you.

Saint Scripts Cards

I’ve got another project planned using the Saint Scripts Craft Kits

and these Saints drawn by 15 year old Kelly.

Stay tuned…you will be able to use the SAME Craft Kits

for a whole new project!

  1. I’m sorry to hear about your losses. We just experienced our second (our first was only four months ago) and it’s incredibly difficult and in many ways, very isolating. I don’t really find things that mention miscarriage as God’s plan to be comforting because I don’t think they were His plan, but rather He allowed them to happen, but we all find comfort from different things.

  2. Those words from “Madeline” are wonderfully poignant; are they printed up somewhere, or is she someone you know? I’d like to pass them along to a friend. Thanks for sharing!
