April 30-He gives and takes away

There were 2 babies due on April 30. One was due in 2006. The other in 2008.

The first came 20 days early, and we cried. The second never came, and we cried. The first we named Stephen Andrew. The second we called our Heaven Baby. The first God protected. The second God called Home.

We love the first and are amazed at God’s goodness. We love the second and are amazed at God’s faithfulness. There were plans for the first. There were plans for the second. Both plans were perfect.

The first we get to hold, laugh, and run with. The second we will one day hold, laugh, and run with.

Sweet Stephen, you are loved. God’s grace has amazed us. Sweet Heaven baby, you are loved. God’s grace will amaze us!

  1. Faith will get you through anything. This was so touching because it says God whatever your will is we will accept. What a testimony.
