Today is October 15th, Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. What a precious, sacred day. All day my mind has been on those who have lost little ones. My heart aches. I haven't experienced that loss, but I've seen others I love dearly walk through it. It is an unbelievably harsh valley to walk through. But the grace that comes in the midst of grief is astoundingly amazing. I've watched people deal with loneliness, heartache, questions, and grief. And I've watched people do it with a beautiful grace that can only come from God.
I don't have eloquent words or new thoughts. I just want you who are mourning and remembering today to know you are not forgotten and your sweet little ones are not forgotten. You mamas (and daddys) are brave and strong and beautiful. Keep pressing on and keep telling the stories of your glory babies, your angel babies, you babies. You are not forgotten and they are not forgotten. You are loved and prayed for. Your stories, their stories matter deeply. Jesus is near, to you and to them.
Psalm 34:18 "The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit."
