My words are few...

It's been a little bit since I've posted, mostly because I just haven't been sure what to say that hasn't already been said. The holidays are hard this year, I miss Isaac terribly, and truly, that's just where I am right now. So instead of trying to come up with something eloquent when I am not really sure what to say, I will simply let my words here be few, and leave you with some pictures of our sweet baby boy...

I think about you often and pray for you.

I am so sorry this hurts so much. He is so beautiful! I continue to lift you up in prayer.

Melissa said...

Such a perfect baby, so beautiful, truly. Sometimes I wonder why, why does God choose certain people to walk this road? GOOD people like yourself, who deserve to have their little boy in their arms. When my cousin lost her little boy to brain cancer, it broke my heart. I couldn't understand why he chose her, why does she have to suffer, why did God take her baby from her arms.....But we have to believe he has a reason and trust in him, and know they are healed. Better place, comforting, but not to a mother, a better place is right here in her arms.

I am truly sorry for your loss, it is so hard to watch someone grieve for a child, knowing nothing will make the pain easier, knowing you will never be able to find the right words as there are no words. I hope you never feel your grieving has been "long enough" because long enough is a lifetime until you hold him once again.

I pray for you and your husband....

Hang in there mommy...... praying, praying and praying for your strength.

God IS with you.

He’s with you always and forever; he will never leave you, and he will never abandon you (Hebrews 13:5)

I love these photos and I am SO thankful that you have them and that you got to meet him. These pictures are his legacy!

God Bless

Continuing to pray for you and Spencer as you find your way down such an incredibly difficult road. I don't even know you IRL Stacy, but you should know that you are loved tremendously by me!

Denise said...

I am praying for you, I truly cannot imagine losing a child, my heart just breaks for you. I pray that you can find some peace these holiday's and enjoy them!

praying dear friend, praying.

Karin said...

It's nice to hear from you even if you don't have much to say. I love seeing pictures of Isaac! He is so beautiful! We will continue to pray for you.

connie said...

Oh, Stacy. I am so sorry. He is so beautiful, and I know you must miss him so much.

Kristin said...

Stacy
I can't say why but to say it must be God but you and Spencer came to my mind when I was getting ready this morning so I was praying for you. Although we have never "met" the Spirit leads us to pray for others in times of great need. Thank God for His provisions!

Laura said...

Thank you for continuing to share your pictures of Isaac. I am so sorry your first Christmas is one without him and he is not in your arms.

Jenn said...

I'm so sorry for the sadness that you feel this holiday season and every day. I am still praying. Thank you for sharing the pictures of your sweet baby boy.

Verna said...

We will continue to pray for you that God would surround you with his love and hold you close.

Ashley Beth said...

You don't even need words to express what is so very visible in your photos with precious Issac. A mother's love (and father's) love is so abundantly clear when I look at those pictures. Issac was a breathtakingly beautiful little boy and when you are reunited on that glorious day, he will be even more beautiful - whole and healed and in the Father's arms. I will continue to pray for you all and it's my prayer that I can carry just a fraction of your burden for you, through Him, during this time in your lives. Thanks for letting us get to know sweet Issac through these pictures and through your heart. Blessings....

Julie said...

Continuing to pray for you and Spencer. Isaac is just beautiful - I am moved by his pictures once again. No words necessary. I know it hurts...and wish I could take the pain away.

"Hope is what happens as long as we breathe. For although it takes time, our sorrow will ease." Keep breathing....

SadMommy3434 said...

I started following your blog before Isaac was born and have continued to do so after his passing. I lost my son Cylas in January and with the holidays coming up I know what you mean about it getting hard.

Isaac is a handsome little man and I know that he knows his mommy and daddy miss him so much. I will continue to keep you and your husband in my thoughts. ((((HUGS)))) to you!!

Katie said...

Those pictures are beautiful. Isaac has the most adorable little nose.
I am so very sorry for all you have been going through.
I love to hear your words, even though they may have been said before.
You continue to inspire so many of us.
Thinking of you today.

Dear Stacy, I hope you can not even worry about being eloquent. We come here to support you--don't worry about your words.

We love the pictures. And a picture is worth a thousand words anyway. Prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. Much love, Jill and Andy

The look in your eyes in the photos show all the eloquence anyone could ever wish for. Thank you for sharing the photos again. Isaac makes my day!!!!

Heidi said...

Stacy, you and your husband are for now and forever, in my daily prayers. Through this time of need most of all, the holiday's are always the roughest times. Know that us here that only know you through your words, and your pictures of your BEAUTIFUL SON, will always be here, no matter what is said, even if it's harsh words that you want to just get out.... sometimes that's the best medicine. Know that we "bloggers" are here to help!
God bless you each and every day.

He is perfect looking. My sister was stillborn 16 years ago and I still mourn her loss. I can't imagine how you all are feeling but I like to believe that Issac is playing with her in the garden of heaven with all the other sweet babies.

You are in my thoughts in prayers.

Jennifer said...

My heart aches and my tears flow for you. I've grown to love you and your family, and I daydream of the moment you can see your Sweetheart again.

I e-mailed you a little while ago. Told you about how you and Isaac are constantly in my thoughts and prayers. Just found out that I am having another little boy... can't imagine how your heart aches for your precious boy. Isaac is so cute and sweet and his little face has left an imprint on my heart.

Jane said...

I admire you so much. I have no words to help you thru this season you are going thru. Thanks so much for sharing your lifes with complete strangers. I feel I know you. My heart breaks for you and your husband and family. GOD bless you all at this hard time.

Ang said...

I too have a precious child in Heaven with your little Isaac. God is able and He is our rock. God did go on to bless us with another beautiful child which we are so thankful for. Your family are in my prayers!! hugs :)

~Kelli said...

I don't know how you do it, get up each morning and put one foot in front of the other, you are so strong and have such strong faith. I continue to pray for you! Love that first picture of Isaac!!! I love all the pictures of Isaac.

Walking by Faith said...

Oh Stacy....I'm earnestly praying for you. The Lord understands your every feeling...sadness, anger, fear...pour your heart out to Him. I can hardly see the keys through my tears, the pictures are so precious. I feel myself just crying to the Lord screaming 'why??' as I look at the pictures. Only He can heal this hurt, only He fully understands, one day in Heaven he will dry every tear from your eye. From all of our eyes...I long for that day...casting your name at the feet of Jesus tonight! ~heidi in TN.

Michelle & Tim said...

We know you're aching, and we're praying...

Kena Bowman-NC said...

I, like you, don't know what to say, but I am praying so, so hard, that you can feel the love that so many people are surrounding you with.

They are few words that say so much...thank you xxx.

I think of Issac daily. Praying for peace for your family

Jessica said...

Continuing to pray for you and your family during this difficult time. You are so strong! Isaac is watching you from heaven:) Your pictures are beautiful. I wish he was here with you...... Take care.

Jen said...

I was reminded yet again to pray for you today through the song "God will Take care of You" by Plumb. It sounds like a lullaby, and the instant I heard it I thought of little Isaac. I imagine that the angels sing it over him in heaven as Jesus rocks your precious son. The lyrics are beautiful,but the music is just gorgeous. May you be comforted knowing that God brings you, Spencer, and Isaac to mind for us to pray over and over and over again.

Jen in California

Be not dismayed what e'er be tide
God will take care of you
Beneath His wings of love abide
God will take care of you

God will take care of you
Through every day, o'er all the way
(He will care for you)
God will take care of you

Through days of toil when heart doth fail
God will take care of you
When dangers fierce your path assail
God will take care of you

God will take care of you
Through every day, o'er all the way
He will care for you
God will take care of you

God will take care of you
Through every day, o'er all the way
He will care for you
God will take care of you

I lost my daughter Sarea in September.
There never have been any words that could even attempt to bring comfort or peace to a grieving mother. My heart aches for you, and for me and some days I don't have any tears left to cry.
They often say that being a mother is never easy... Aren't we living poof of that!
All I know is that God is carrying us through and he won't let us down.....

Amber said...

I think about you often. Isaac is beautiful and I can imagine every first you should have had with him will sting like crazy. The Lord will help you through, in the meantime, hang in there.

Stacy, I'm so sorry for the pain you and your husband are experiencing. Thank you very much for sharing the beautiful pictures of Isaac. I will be thinking about you and praying you find some peace.

He is beautiful. I love the first picture.

You and your family are in my prayers. Thinking of you and Isaac.

Anonymous said...

God Bless you! In your post you mention you wished he was here to see all the twinkling lights...please remember not only is here but he is watching over you. Just remember to think this way...look at the beautiful twinkling lights but remember to look up in the sky to see much more then just lights but beautiful stars which Issac is among always smiling down on you and your family.

Charity said...

What beautiful images. I am praying for you and will continue to do so everyday. Lots of prayer from Albuquerque.

Hazeleyessue said...

You don't know me, but I am still praying for you guys. I was actually thinking of you several times this weekend, specifically of how encouraging it was (and still is) to see the body of Christ band together and pray for you. I have been reminded of that blessing because our cousin Mark was in a severe dirt bike accident on Friday, and although there is a slight glimmer of hope, the doctors are saying that his chance of survival is 1/500. He has a wife and a six-year-old son. He is a Christian, which we praise God for. If you get around to reading this, please, please, please, think to pray for him and our family. Thank you. I pray that God continues to surround you and your husband in his precious comfort. www.prayforthelamberths.com

I've been following your blog for a while. I don't usually comment, but my, what a handsome little man.

Kathleen said...

Ahh, sweet baby Laughter (Isaac) -- he looks like he is singing in the first picture.

Praying for comfort and peace for you both

Audra MacKenzie said...

I just found your blog two days ago and you have been on my mind almost constantly since. You have a gift with words. One of the hardest things I've found in life has been accepting and trusting in Gods plan when my faith has been as 'near' perfect to something contrary. I love the story of Jesus and Lazarus. I know you know the story. I am so touched that even though Jesus KNEW he would bring Lazarus back from the dead, He wept first. I could never know your pain, but it's so awesome that our Saviour understands your pain perfectly. I'm so sorry that you are feeling alone right now. It seems like those are the times when we hang on by fingertips to our past experiences. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Thank you for your courage to share your story and your love of Christ. You are making me a better mother through your example and strengthening my faith.

What a gorgeous son. He looks a lot like you.

Praying for your family as you cope through this season without your little one.
