A woman from our church gave that book to my wife (much in the same way that I'm sure Mary Beth gave that book to you) after our daughter went Home in 2007. It was a book that I didn't want to read at first actually, but it's also a book I read cover to cover in one night of sadness, pain, and hope. Thank you for reminding me that there are people sent by God in our lives to be that voice of comfort, even if it's through the simple act of sharing grief, and a book. God bless.

It's amazing to me that so many great & wonderful people that have profound messages did so through the grief of losing children. Sad but shows that God really can take any situation and make it to His glory.


I haven't read your blog in awhile but thought of it today when a friend of mine lost her dear twin baby boys. They had twin to twin transfusion and were born yesterday at 28 1/2 weeks. The both passed away this morning within 2 hours of each other. I will buy the book for them praying that it will bring them comfort. I am praying that God will allow me to give it to them at an appropriate time. Thanks for the recommendation.


The more I relate to others on a deep and intimate manner the more I discover that fusser (suffering)is more universal than first imagined. Most of us feel that few others must have experience the tragedy that I've felt, yet God reminds us of the world we live in... now... but not forever. Oh Lord fix my eyes on You alone.


Thanks for sharing, I will try to get a copy. Have you read C.S. Lewis' "A Grief Observed"? I am curious about it, even though it pertains to losing a marriage partner and not a child.

Loved your 'fussering' post, btw! Out of the mouths of babes!

My daddy passed away on January 7th. I was blessed to be with him while he journeyed to the next life, to be with Jesus. Even though we knew it was coming, and I even prayed for the Lord to take him, it hurts so bad...there is a new place in my heart that I have discovered..a place of mourning and grief like I have never experienced. I know you and Marybeth had prayed for daddy and I just wanted to thank you and give you an update. Blessings to you all sweet Sista!
