6.25.2010

A week ago

I can't believe it has been a week. We are going to Dallas when Brent gets off work. We will come back with our little guy tomorrow.

His memorial service will be next Thursday, the 1st.

Still not completely back to the blog...but maybe soon.

Proverbs 3:3-6

3 Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.

4 Then you will win favor and a good name
in the sight of God and man.

5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;

6 in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight.


I love this picture. It was taken a few hours after he was born. He was in route from Parkland to Children's.

{6.7.10}


Thank you all for your continuous thoughts & prayers. We certainly feel them.

Thank you Tahnie for hosting the Stella & Dot fundraiser Jessica posted about below. Jessica has emailed me about several other fundraiser requests. People are amazing.

  65. That picture is beautiful. I have never commented before but I've been following your blog for months and praying for you and your family. Your Faith astounds and inspires me. You are amazing people. I'm going to share my favorite comforting passage in the Bible. I hope you don't mind. Psalm 61:

    1 Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer. 2 From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. 3 For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe. 4 I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.

    Sweet angel Cohen is resting in the shelter of our Heavenly Father's wings. Take comfort and peace be with you.

He will live in your hearts, and the hearts of all of us, who have come to know and love him, through your sharing. May God continue to hold you, and give you comfort and peace, as you get through the next few weeks. I shed tears for you, knowing the sadness you are feeling. Love and hugs to both you and Brent.

  83. Praying for you. Wish I had wonderful words of wisdom and comfort, but anything I would say would sound cliche. Just know that there are so many lifting you up in prayer . . .

    ReplyDelete
  84. I have no words other than, I am SO sorry for your loss. I can't even begin to imagine what you're going through and have been through. You are in my thoughts and prayers daily and I pray that you will the God's arms around you. Your precious little Cohen touched my life and from what I read, has touched many many others. Hold on to the time that you had and you will look all the more forward to heaven. I recently had someone very close to me go to meet our Maker and the words to the following link's song were how I felt. It's Mercy Me's HomeSick. Blessings.... May the Lord bless and keep you, may HIS face shine upon you and give you HIS peace.

    Until...
