This song has been such a blessing to me!

Just beautiful!

This is such a beautiful memorial to our child. I am so thankful that I heard about this wonderful site. This is a tremendous gift for parents who have lost a child. I extend a heartfelt thank you to the loving couple who have taken on the mission to have a place for so many children not to be forgotten. What a tremendous gift of love and compassion.

Whatever My Lot

One of my favorite hymns is "It is Well With My Soul". Unfortunately, I haven't been feeling well in my soul lately. The past few months have been a harrowing and numbing experience but I am beginning to see the light again.

This month has been particularly rough for me, because this is the month that my baby daughter Zuri was supposed to be born on October 15 which was also National Child Loss Day. It was a wake up call for me to realize that not many are aware that such a day exists. If only it didn't have to be that we needed a day such as this. Some days I can't help but think about if everything would have went as planned would she be here by now or would she still be holding out....:) Well I know that I must press on but I have been praying that God will show me how I can help someone else who may be hurting from a loss.

As I stated above, "It Is Well" is one of my favorite hymns and it was written by Horatio Spafford after experiencing significant tragedy in his own life. He lost a son, his four daughters and his financial security in separate incidents and still could pen these words. I truly admire that. I am praying for renewed faith as I follow this path of grief and pray that God will lead me into his pasture of peace.

It Is Well With My Soul
When peace like a river, attendeth my way,When sorrows like sea billows roll;Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,It is well, it is well, with my soul.
Refrain:It is well, with my soul,It is well, with my soul,It is well, it is well, with my soul.
So, I know that I have been forever changed by this experience in my life but I have chosen to trust in God and believe that I will come forth as a new creature and will continue my journey to Higher Ground with the memory of Zuri in my heart. I will get there eventually. So whatever my lot it has caused me to say it is well it is well with my soul.
