Near and dear to my heart are the families who have endured the tragic loss of a pregnancy(s) or infant(s). October 15th was Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. At 7:00 PM many people lit candles in memory of these sweet angels. The candles below were lit and photographed that evening too.
Because of Nora’s diagnosis I have come to know several many families who have little angels waiting for them in heaven. Each little life, no matter how short was incredibly meaningful and not without purpose.
For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
(Psalm 139:13-16 NIV)
My heartfelt prayers are with each of you.
