My friend, how much I ache for you. The loneliness within one’s own body is a feeling I prayed you would never know. I am comforted with the knowledge that you are able to fill that emptiness with our Lord through the Eucharist. I know, that as we and our children here are the closest of friends, so too, our little ones are together praying for us and their siblings as they praise God face to face, as we long to do. I know that although our motherly arms ache to hold the little ones we so desperately love, Our Blessed Mother has enveloped them into her arms as she presented them to her Son. I am awed meditating on the infiniteness of God. His love for us is so profound that He gave to us the gift of creating, not just the fleeting things of the world, but the eternal, a new person, a soul that will live on beyond our imagination. Whether we have them for a week, 9 months, 20 years, or all our natural lives they are for God. They will live, because of Him, forever. At the moment the Lord blessed us with new life they were made in His Image and Likeness to live with Him forever in Peace and Happiness. At the moment of their creation their eternity began. It is awesome to remember we will have eternity to spend together, sharing the Lambs Supper as God has prepared for those who love Him. I find comfort that the Lord provides even now that at the moment of Consecration, Heaven and Earth collide and we are together, one Body, One people, One Communion of saints, Worshipping Him as He has designed. I look forward to the day when we will sit at the Wedding feast and the veil is lifted from our eyes and together we worship Him, our Bridegroom, our Savior, our Lord. I love you and as always I lift you up to our Lord in prayer. May He continue to give you strength and the Peace only He can give.

God bless you!
I love the way you write. I cried.
You rock!
I don't mean to say "I know how you feel" - but, Jessie and I have children in heaven as well. I can't begin to say how much you guys mean to those who know y'all. You're all very dear to us.

Thank you so much for sharing your heart. God has really used this issue in my life to humble me and truly allow me to see his hand in my life. As much as I desire to be in control, he really is the author of life.
We have suffered miscarriage after our first child and struggled through 4 years of infertility after our 2nd child. As painful as it was, I know in my heart that God's plans are greater than I can imagine. After resolving that our family would be complete with 2 children...God has blessed us with 2 more! My prayers are with you.

We have children the exact ages of yours (except my 2yo won't be three until March). I love your post and I'm sorry to hear about your miscarriages.

Melissa

I have some babies in heaven too, K. It's a wonderful comfort to know that they are in the arms of our Maker. Thinking of you!! Thanks for sharing!

Leisa

Beautifully written. I am sorry for your loss. This topic is close to my heart at the moment, so it was really nice to read your sentiments. Praying for your next baby.

Tiffany

This was beautifully written...I'm sorry to hear about your miscarriages. I know it must be heartbreaking. I will be praying for you to be healed and for another little one. I sooo wish that my husband had the same sentiment. I love children and would love a houseful. Not sure how I would handle it but I know God would give me the strength. Thank you for sharing your heart.

I will offer my public condolences for your recent miscarriages, friend. I have also come to realize the true value of children and God's plan for us, with the knowledge that mine are all 3 miracles from Above. And yes, your kids ARE sweet. You are a lovely family.

About Me

  • Hi, my name is Kirsten. I am married to my best friend and we have nine awesome children including our little saint in heaven, Thomas Joseph. We are Catholic, loving, living, and learning about our faith every day. We just moved to a fixer upper farm here in beautiful Kentucky. We also homeschool some of our children. I really enjoy COFFEE, reading, gardening, running, and knitting. I try to enjoy, laundry and cleaning bathrooms and sweeping floors. But what I really love is to be home, with my husband and children, living this life. This blog is where I write about the good stuff (mostly). Thanks for stopping by!

Prayer to St. Joseph

  • PRAYER TO ST. JOSEPH THE WORKMAN Composed by Pope St. Pius X O glorious St. Joseph, model of all those who are devoted to labor, obtain for me the grace to work conscientiously, putting the call of duty above my natural inclinations, to work with gratitude and joy, in a spirit of penance for the remission of my sins, considering it an honor to employ and develop by means of labor the gifts received from God, to work with order, peace, moderation and patience, without ever shrinking from weariness and difficulties, to work above all with purity of intention and detachment from self, having always death before my eyes and the account that I must render of time lost, of talents wasted, of good omitted, of vain complacency in success, so fatal to the work of God. All for Jesus, all through Mary, all after thine example, O Patriarch, St. Joseph. Such shall be my watchword in life and in death. Amen.

A Considered Childhood by Elizabeth Foss

  • As much as I am able, every day, I will ensure that my child will: * Live the Liturgy * Experience loveliness * Breathe deeply: Fresh air and exercise * Serve others * Listen to, contemplate, and exchange ideas. * Develop expressive skills. * Practice logical reasoning. Math. * Receive focused attention and affection
