2 years ago today we held our first baby in our hands for the first & last time.
Our little Covenant Hope, who is not dead but now fully alive!!
She knows what is true fullness of joy, for she lives in His presence.
At the King’s right hand are pleasures forevermore, and so I know she eternally rejoices.

Psalm 16:11
You make known to me the path of life;

in Your presence there is fullness of joy;

at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

This is my comfort and my joy today.
Although I miss our little Covenant every day of my life, I know that God’s covenantal promises were for me.
For her. For my family. For all of our children.

Acts 2:39
“For the promise is for you and for your children
and for all who are far off,
everyone whom the Lord our God calls to Himself.”

Today we remember what the Lord has done.
Today we praise His name!
The Lord is faithful!!

Deuteronomy 7:9
Know therefore that the LORD your God is God,
the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love
with those who love Him and keep His commandments,
to a thousand generations…

“If you have shallow sorrows
you will receive shallow graces.
If you have deep afflictions
you will obtain deeper proof
of God’s faithfulness.”
—Spurgeon (Beside Still Waters)

  1. I remember the day well…  it was Jaclynn’s 22nd birthday (mine is today)

    I remember celebrating our birthdays and yet my heart was saddened and crying out for your loss.


    My prayers are with you all.

  2. Samantha, I am *so bad* at birthdays – I can’t keep track of anyone’s anymore, it seems. 🙂 But you girls always remember. You are such a blessing. And may your birthdays (yesterday and today!) both be blessed, and filled with joyful memories. God bless you, and may He guide your footsteps over the coming year. love, me 🙂

  3. Thank you Melissa for the sweet birthday wishes. =) We spent the day at Mt. Lassen hiking with friends and enjoying our heavenly Father’s beautiful creation. Then had some Nutella cheesecake, yum!

    Thank you too for the prayers for blessings and guidance…I feel I need that more than ever right now in my life.

    *hugs* to you and yours,
