A Light to Remember
You Are Not Alone
These are life-giving words for women and men in the often silent pain of miscarriage, stillbirth, and infant loss. (I would like to include adult child loss today as well.)
I’ve had the privilege of hearing many of your stories and sharing mine in the hopes of encouraging each other to KNOW that there are others enduring these painful steps in life.
Many times I’ve heard a pastor friend say, “I know that I know that I know.” If you have been through one of these experiences or if you are right in the middle of this oh-so-difficult-unexpected-devastating-time-of-life, please…
Know that you know that you know.
REALLY, TRULY, KNOW.
There are people not only in your area, but also all over the world who have experienced their own unique walk through a similar time.
October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. A wave of light to recognize and remember marks the day around the world. Join in by lighting your candle (or turning on a battery-operated one) at 7:00pm in your time zone and know that others are doing the same.
If you have a loved one who is remembering a child, light a candle of support and speak that child’s name. Say a prayer for your loved one who grieves. Tell them of your support tonight.
I have many specific names and people on my heart and I’ll be praying for them. I’ll pray for you as well. For Almighty comfort, peace, courage, and hope.
We all need each other. We were created to live in love and support of one another.
You are not alone. Please treasure this reality tonight.
