Today is the day.

Today is the day we were supposed to meet our sunshine baby.
Today we celebrate his life.
And today we grieve over his death. 
And we ask that you Lord, be so very near to us.
These empty arms need your arms to wrap around us.

I know

God's arms are bigger to hold him.
Stronger and and more gentle to rock him.
His voice more calming than mine, his mother's voice to calm him.
God's love is 
greater 
wider 
bigger 
deeper
than even the greatest love I could have for him.
I thank you, Lord, that our Elston is dwelling with you in that way. 

Thank you to my friend Rebecca Christian for this reminder.
