a heavy heart....




We have suffered loss in our family. Our dear daughter-in-law Samantha had a miscarriage on Tuesday. Our son Ryan called Monday to tell us the news, that it wasn't looking good at all. He was stunned and grieving, but still we prayed and held onto Hope. The tests confirmed the loss of the little one yesterday.



The past week or so has been unreal. It seemed to be one challenge or another. But, I continue to stand...speaking and believing God's word for my family and loved ones. Praying for those who grieve, forgiving those who have hurt us so deeply, and moving forward one step at a time.



May you all be richly blessed in all that our Lord has for you!!



Blessings....

Dearest Mindy, I am grieving right alongside y'all. I am so very sorry for all of the heartache and pain y'all are having. I pray for God to give you comfort and strength during this difficult and trying time. May you feel His loving arms wrapped around you giving you a great sense of peace and comfort. Take care, sweet friend.

Hold on, my sweet friend.

I am so sorry to hear this news. This is truly a loss - a great one indeed. I know how you must feel...both our daughters suffered through this very heartbreak. My heart goes out to you and your family. I do hope your daughter-in-law is okay physically. Stay strong for her and your dear son.

Hugs,

I am just catching up here a bit and read of your loss. I am so sorry that your family has been dealing with this. My sweetheart and I understand the loss all too well. Our son and dear daughter-in-law experienced pregnancy loss and it was so hard to watch their grief and not be able to 'fix' it! Blessings to each of you. ~Adrienne~
