Grieving Glory

While planning Shyla's celebration, I scoured the internet looking for quotes and poems that I could relate to.  As I read my Bible, my heart is drawn to certain scriptures that provide help, hope and healing.  There are songs that really ministered to my heart and helped me to worship in my darkest times.  Over the past few months I have started quite a library of books written by and for parents after the loss of a baby.  I have been trying to think of a way to have all of these things in one place, so I have started working on this new blog.  If you have poems, quotes, scriptures or songs that have provided help, hope or healing after the loss of a child, please let me know and I will add it.  I decided to call it Grieving Glory, inspired by the song Glory Baby by Watermark.  Please feel free to read, follow and comment on the posts there.  Thomas Jefferson once said, "Who better to softly bind up the wound of one, than he who has suffered the same wound himself?"  I hope I can help bind and heal wounds of parents like myself.

I think starting a blog for this is a great idea, and I am glad you are doing it.
