my heart breaks

I have been following the story of a family here in town who were blessed with 6 precious babies, however, they were never able to enjoy them on this side of heaven, as they were born at 20 weeks gestation. Jacob, Evan, Joy, David, Jonathan, and Hope are now resting in the arms of Jesus. Tomorrow they will be remembered at a simple graveside ceremony. I have decided to go to the memorial service partially to show support and sympathy for Courtney and Allen, but also for closure for my own little losses. I have realized that "closure" has been a vital yet lacking element in my life. If you read this and are a praying person... please keep The Tipping family in your prayers! I can not imagine the hurt, loss, emptiness, emotion that comes from loosing all of your babies at the same time. Oh Jesus please bring them peace and comfort during this raging storm.

Watermark: Glory Baby

Glory baby you slipped away as fast as we could say baby... baby
You were growing, what happened dear?
You disappeared on us
Heaven will hold you before we do
Heaven will keep you safe until we’re home with you…
Until we’re home with you…

Miss you everyday
Miss you in every way
But we know there’s a
day when we will hold you
We will hold you
You’ll kiss our tears away
When we’re home to stay
Can’t wait for the day when we will see you
We will see you
But baby let sweet Jesus hold you
‘till mom and dad can hold you…
You’ll just have heaven before we do
You’ll just have heaven before we do

Sweet little babies, it’s hard to
understand it ‘cause we’re hurting
We are hurting
But there is healing
And we know we’re stronger people through the growing
And in knowing-
That all things work together for our good
And God works His purposes just like He said He would…
Just like He said He would…

I can’t imagine heaven’s lullabies
and what they must sound like
But I will rest in knowing, heaven is your home
And it’s all you’ll ever know…all you’ll ever know…
