....have you thought about it lately? Have you thought about the beautiful place Christ said He is going to prepare for us? Have you thought of the place where there will be no pain, no tears? Have you thought about the loved ones you have there already?
The past couple of days have made our family think a little more on heaven.
At our midwife appointment everything was going great, until it was time to find the heartbeat with the doppler. She searched and searched, but there was no heartbeat heard. Our sweet midwife reassured us that it is still quite early to hear a heartbeat since we were just a couple of days shy of 11 weeks. But, she thought it would be best to have an ultrasound and verify things.
I felt the wave of emotions that comes with not knowing how your precious baby is doing. We went the next morning for an ultrasound, and the technician confirmed my fear....our baby did not have a heartbeat. We have another sweet baby we will one day meet in heaven.
I've thought a lot in the past few days about things we say. Things like, "We've lost the baby." But, before I could say that, I thought that really our baby is not lost. Our sweet little one is with Jesus in heaven...no better place to be. The only thing that is "lost" are the memories we thought we would share with our little blessing. Welcoming the baby into the world and our family. Watching first steps, listening to first words, having heart to heart conversations. But our baby truly is not lost. We know where our loved ones are. They are safe and protected in heaven. Our little one, that we chose to name Zebby Faith, is now meeting our 2 other little ones, Bethany Kristine and Josiah Boone, and best of all, our Zebby is in the arms of Jesus. The best place.
Heaven is sounding sweeter all the time.
