Safe in the arms of God



Yesterday we miscarried our precious baby. I'll spare the details except to say that while we are so broken hearted, filled with confusion, experiencing some guilt, fatigued, and asking questions, God has been so present. He has provided us with peace, He has allowed us closure, He has brought us closer as a family, and He has not left us alone.

We named our child Andrew Thomas Dawson. Our family now has a saint in Heaven who is experiencing the eternal peace of a God who, in His mercy, allowed us to love Andrew into existence and be blessed with the gift of his life, even if it for just a short while. The Lord gives and the Lord takes away. BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD.

Kate & David,
We are so sorry to hear your news and are keeping your family in our prayers. What a wonderful, spiritual post. I'm so glad to know that we all have a loving Father in heaven to comfort us when we need Him and shows us what it means to love someone else so perfectly. Hug yourself for me...
