I finally received my copy of Rebecca's book! I am so excited to read it, in fact, I will probably be up all night tonight. If you get a chance, please visit Rebecca's blog and read more about the journey she and her husband have been on this past year after loosing their first child, Molly. While I haven't read it yet, I can assure you this book is a must-read. You can order your copy here.
I have been so encouraged this past year by Rebecca's honest words. There is a Letter to the Reader at the end of her book (yes, I always look at what is at the end first) and in it she, once again, she amazes me with her wisdom and Christ-like perspective. She says, "We are never promised a life without pain, but rather we are promised that the God of all comfort is close to the brokenhearted."
Click here to read my first post about Molly's story from a year ago.
At 32 she married my 41 year old dad not knowing if they would be able to have children easily. Three babies later, her children became her world. She has sacrificed so much to make sure we grew up with everything - she was a mom that stayed home to raise us, schooled us from home (yes, I was home schooled), and most importantly she taught us what it meant to live in the image of Christ.
So, today on her birthday, though she won't remember or understand for long, when she is told what a special day it is I pray that she knows how loved she is.
