There’s a miracle happening.

In: A Quiet Spirit, Celebrating Our Little One, Trisomy 18

This miracle, though, isn’t happening in our baby.  But rather, in our hearts.

Sometimes, the spark of faith is slight

And does not make the darkness bright.

But keep it lit and you will find:

Far better this than being blind.

One little flame when all is night,

Proves there is such a thing as Light.

Remember now the place and price

Where Jesus promised paradise.

One answered prayer when all is gone,

Will give you hope to wait for dawn.

    I love this book about Job. A friend gave it to me when my dad had cancer, and it helped me get my focus back on God. We are praying for your family.

    I am going to order this book on Job. You’re in my thoughts and prayers. All glory to God for the faith he has given to sustain and comfort you. You are a light in the dark world. God bless!

    You should! I’m pretty sure it’s out of print now though – one of our friends from college did all the art for it. It’s really good.

    If you can’t find it on amazon – they made it into a movie with all of his original art that you can buy on iTunes for $7.99. It’s really good.
