God Gave us Heaven

Tuesday, March 1, 2011

We donated this book to our church library in memory of our precious firstborn. It’s the sweetest book, I love the way it describes Heaven in a way a child could understand.
I want to thank you all for your sweet comments and emails, you have no idea how much it means to me to know he is remembered and loved by so many.
We had a nice day remembering him, missing him and celebrating his short but meaningful life.
We headed to the cemetery after Robb got home from work and released 3 balloons. We then headed out to dinner and enjoyed the rest of our night as a family.

We felt your prayers, thank you!
“For behold, I will create new heavens and a new earth;
And the former things will not be remembered or come to mind. 
The sound of weeping or crying will be heard in it no more.

Never again will there be in it an infant who lives but a few days”
Isaiah 65: 17, 19-20

Beautiful post- Brenham is a true gift from God. So happy y'all were able to spend time with him. There is no doubt in my mind that he loved the balloons :)

Love and Hugs,

I am glad you had a nice day remembering your first born. That picture of Grayden pointing at Brenham's stone is so bitter sweet...I'm tearing just talking about it. May your family continue to grow in love and draw close to your faith because one day you will reunite with your first born.(Acts 24:14) hugs-
