The Lord giveth…

…and the Lord taketh away; blessed be the name of the Lord.

February 21st God proved this true in our lives. We went to the doctor early that morning because Laura had begun having complications with the pregnancy. After an ultrasound it was confirmed that there had been a miscarriage and the baby had died. In fact, we couldn’t see the baby at all on the screen. This was definitely the hardest thing we had gone through as a couple. The following days were even harder as the realities of everything began to sink in, but God’s goodness was also there. So many people called, brought meals, and poured out prayers for us…we will be eternally grateful! God is so good. Even in the rain we can see His hand in the rainbows. To God be the glory…great things He has done.

  9. I’ll be praying for you both. I lost a sibling about eleven years ago and I still remember the experience. May God comfort you and give you much grace!

  10. Hugs to both of you across country from Colorado! I was so sad when I read your post this morning. Losing a baby is never easy, and the tears can still flow even years later. However, God is good, and it’s comforting to know that there is already one precious little one waiting in Heaven to someday meet you both.
