Three years ago today, we said goodbye to our first child. We believe she was our first daughter. Our sweet baby Covenant Hope. This day never goes by without bittersweetness. What a precious baby this little one was! Now she lives more fully than I can even imagine! For her, to live was Christ and to die was gain.
Happy third birthday, sweet baby of mine! Mommy misses you so much, and can’t believe that it has been three whole years since I held you in my hands. You are the one who first made me “mommy.” I still imagine what your little red pigtails would look like, and if you would have freckles like your little brother has across his nose. I imagine playing with dolls & tea sets with you. And I look forward to joining you in the heavenly chorus someday! I can’t wait to hear your beautiful voice and sing alongside you as we praise our Father together. Your Daddy and I love you dearly every day. God is so good to have given us the gift of you. We are thankful for the blessing of being your parents. Please give my love to your brothers & sisters.
With all my kisses, tears, and heart overflowing with love~ your mommy
“And as for Me, this is My covenant with them,” says the LORD:
“My Spirit that is upon you, and My words that I have put in your mouth, shall not depart out of your mouth,
or out of the mouth of your offspring, or out of the mouth of your children’s offspring,” says the LORD,
“from this time forth and forevermore.”
You are my hiding place and my shield;
I hope in Your Word.

I bet there was a celebration in Heaven today 😉
Beautiful post, Melissa. What a sweet way to remember your firstborn.
I still remember finding out on the 31st; my 22nd birthday. I remember running out to the barn to tell Jac the sad news. We sat there in stunned silence. I said a prayer or two and prayed that you’d be holding a baby by my next birthday. God gave you precious, miracle Gabriel. Little did anyone know what was to come…. *hugs*
What a beautiful sweet tribute to Covenant Hope; your firstborn.
