God has ways of preparing us...

As soon as I heard the words, "....we can't find a heartbeat" a song came to my mind and stayed with me for weeks to come. Actually, the lyrics are still with me. Weird how the week that I was put on bed rest I had taken out an old CD of mine and popped it into the player. It was a "Watermark" CD. And as I was listening through the songs, I came across a song called "Glory Baby". The song kind of disturbed me at the time, being almost full term. But the words stuck with are the lyrics:

Glory baby you slipped away as fast as we could say baby…baby..
You were growing, what happened dear? You disappeared on us baby…baby..
Heaven will hold you before we do
Heaven will keep you safe until we’re home with you… Until we’re home with you…
Miss you everyday

Miss you in every way
But we know there’s a day when we will hold you
We will hold you
You’ll kiss our tears away
When we’re home to stay
Can’t wait for the day when we will see you
We will see you
But baby let sweet Jesus hold you‘till mom and dad can hold you…
You’ll just have heaven before we do
You’ll just have heaven before we do
Sweet little babies, it’s hard to understand it ‘cause we’re hurting

We are hurting
But there is healing
And we know we’re stronger people through the growing
And in knowing- That all things work together for our good
And God works His purposes just like He said He would…
Just like He said He would…
BRIDGE: I can’t imagine heaven’s lullabies

and what they must sound like
But I will rest in knowing, heaven is your home
And it’s all you’ll ever know…all you’ll ever know…

This was the opening of Lilly's funeral 11-17-09, the second worst day of my life....
