The grieving mother has a backstory etched into her soul.
We have a big family, eleven kids in all. Our home is teaming with life and has been for as long as I can remember. But two little boys are missing. Knit together in my womb, not yet completed – their lives ended without warning. In two different seasons – with no explanation.
This mom knows the jolt of grief – a thief that can rip the joy of living right out from under you.
But God – who is rich in mercy and ‘well acquainted with grief’ draws near to the brokenhearted. He reaches into a mother’s heart and creates her life anew. Grief’s journey to wholeness is a long road marked with countless encounters. When someone you love suffers loss – here are some ideas. Take courage – step into their broken world – and offer hope.
I wrote this in honor of every little one who has slipped out of this world and into the hands of our Maker and for every mother.
