Christmas is about a Baby

I've known the true meaning of Christmas as long as I can remember. The king, the wise men, the shepherds, the star...

It's a celebration of Jesus the Son of God being born.

After Reese went to Heaven I suddenly looked at life in a completely different way. She has changed the way I see everything. Holidays are no different.

Christmas is about a Baby.

Holidays can be difficult for anyone experiencing loss but this time of year takes on a whole new challenge for those of us who have lost a baby or desire a baby.

My heart is with all of you who know the loss of a baby or who are waiting for one as all that surrounds us is Christmas. The celebration of new life. A Baby sent to save us from our sins. A Baby sent as a holy sacrifice.

Whether you are full of joy or heartache this Christmas may your hope rest in the perfect Baby born for you and me so many years ago.

GOD became man. May His be the hands that heal you. The true miracle of Christmas.

She who has believed is blessed because what was spoken to her by the Lord will be fulfilled!

Luke 1:45

Katie, thank you for posting this reminder of the reason for the season. I grieve for all the lost children...for Reese, and for my son Jonathan who God blessed me with 25 years ago. This is my second holiday without him and in many ways, it is harder than last year. But I think God each and every day for giving me a son to love and cherish all those years.


God Bless you and your family - saying a prayer today for all those who have lost someone dear to them.

Peace,
Diane from Baltimore MD
