Remembering

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.2 Corinthians 1:3, 4

I am always amazed at how God gives me just what I need to read or hear at just the right time.  The verse above was the passage in the reading today in a devotional called Mornings With Jesus.  

I thought the timing was perfect for this passage.  August 6, 2003 was the due date of our first baby. Reading this passage on this day reminded me of the pain we felt when we had the miscarriage and the love and comfort we received to help us during this time.  I have always felt one of the things I learned from this time was caring for others as they go through loss and trying to be a small comfort to them.  

I will always remember this day and think about our first baby who is in Heaven.  

Have a day of blessings!
  Bethany
