A new day has dawned...............

This sign was placed on Bridget's hospital door
 At about 5:00PM yesterday afternoon our little angel went to be with the Lord.  It was a long and difficult day for all of us but especially Bridget and Clint.  We had hoped that things would progress quickly, but they did not.  But, once things began to progress, it went smoothly and we were grateful for that.

Bridget's Doctor and the entire hospital staff could not have been more caring and compassionate.  We were more than impressed and so thankful for their sensitivity at such a difficult time.


When I went in to see Bridget following the delivery all I wanted to do was hold and hug her and take away her pain and hurt.  Isn't that what Mother's are suppose to be able to do?  Well, it isn't possible for a Mother to do the work of the Lord, so I knew that all I could do was hug her, encourage her and be here for her.  The Lord will take away her pain and hurt and give her strength and courage in the days ahead as she grieves this loss.  She has been such a testimony to the faithfulness of God during this entire process and I am so proud of her.

As we were driving home from the hospital last night there was the most gorgeous sunset that I had ever seen.  It was as if the Lord had given us a sign that He was still in full control, knew right where we were and a new day was dawning.  What a comfort!

Again, please know that all of you have ministered to me/us through your prayerful support, your sweet comments and words of encouragement.  We shall go forth!

  6. Lea, as I wrote on FB, a parent hurts twice - for ourselves of course, but also for our child. I loved your statement that you cannot do the work that only the Lord can do. That truth is such a comfort to us parents. Also, I call those special moments such as the sunset as God's little hugs. We just need to be aware of them, and you surely were yesterday. Love you all, Libby

  9. I'm in tears with you. So painful . How kind of God, though, to give you something beautiful to look at after your loss. Bridgett is going to need you more than you know.

  10. I've been thinking of her and your family since I first read about her situation. There's nothing like the healing balm our Lord gives. May she continue to heal.

    Blessings and love,
    Debbie

  11. I am so sorry Lea. There's nothing I can say except that can possibly help except that I am praying for you. I will add Bridget and Clint to my prayer journal and remember them as they grieve, recover, and build new hopes for the future. "Blessed be God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all of our tribulation." 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
