clinging to the truth

I sit with a very heavy heart tonight and attempt to put words on this screen. I think I've hit the delete button about 20 times. It's just so hard to form words when your heart is breaking. Precious Diana, a sweet online friend, said goodbye to her baby boy Kaden last night as he went home to be with Jesus. He joins his brothers. 3 babies she has now lost. I can't fathom the pain, I can't grasp the devastation.  All I can cling to during a time like this is the truth. The truth is: God is still on the throne and He is still good. Although we may be angry and not understand, we simply have to cling to that truth. This is a time to grieve with our friend. For this fellow mama, daddy & big sister. Tonight I was hugging my 3yo so tightly after I heard the news, and as I cried she asked me what was wrong. I couldn't imagine having to tell her she would never see one of her baby sisters again. That precious Bella will not see her brothers until they reunite in heaven. My heart aches for her so badly.

Lets join the thousands in covering this family in prayer. We grieve as they grieve.

Rejoice with those who rejoice, mourn with those who mourn. Romans 12:15

I you would like to make a donation to the Stone family to help cover all the added costs over the last few weeks and to come, please do so here.


I just love the pictures that Ounces of Hope captured. What a blessing it will be to have these to remember the joy and the pain of those few weeks with their Kaden.
