Easter

I know this post is about four days overdue. I had grand plans of writing something really long and deep on Easter morning. But the truth is, I don't know that I had much to say. I let it all sit for a few days, and still, I find myself without a lot to say.

So I will simply share a new picture with you, and some of the lyrics to the first song we sang in church on Easter morning, because truly, this is what has occupied my heart and my thoughts this Easter season...


Savior
He can move the mountains
My God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save

Forever
Author of salvation
You rose and conquered the grave
Yes, You conquered the grave...


Thank goodness for Easter morning... that time of resurrection and redemption... the confidence in knowing the my sweet little boy is in the presence of our Savior because of the cross, and because of the resurrection.
Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress.
He sent forth his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave. Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men.
~ Psalm 107:19-21

I thought of you on Easter. We also sang this song, it was absolutely awesome to sing it on Easter. Of course we've sang it other Sundays, but it took on a different feel singing it on the day we celebrate His Resurrection! I know the day was hard for you. I never seem to be able to say anything very meaningful, but I always want to let you know that I'm thinking of you and you are not forgotten, as Isaac will never be forgotten.

Beautiful, sweet Stacy...I am so grateful for His resurrection...so grateful that our sweet babies are in His presence because our Savior lives. And, some sweet day...we will be there, too...because He lives.

Love and Prayers,
Kelly

That's so true. Our Lord Jesus is MIGHTY to save. He will save you from the pain you feel here on Earth and reunite you with your baby boy in Heaven. Until then, know that there are many people here who care about you... your heart... how it breaks... and when it feels full of joy and love.

That song has been on my heart and has been an encouragement to me through our loss as well.
Thank you for sharing.
Praise God for hope and eternal life!

I love that song. I hear it on the radio all the time. I pray for you all the time.

This is the day! said...

We sang the same song and it has been in my mind since then. I love the lyrics and what an awesome song to sing throughout the day. Praying for you!

Mary said...

I had similar thoughts on Easter and an overwhelming feeling of thankfulness, knowing that before His great sacrifice, we would have believed our children to be lost always, and now we know they are with Him, in His arms.

I think of you often.

You all continue to be in my prayers.

My five year old termed the phrase "scream with joy" when referring to his baby brother finding his voice. I immediately thought of you. I hope you are able to scream with joy some day.

That song was just playing on my iTunes, oddly enough!

I'm sorry about your son, what a precious baby.

I have been wondering about you. I was going to check in but thought I let you be for awhile. I knew you would write/post when you were ready.

You don't always have to have a lot of word my friend....

Sometimes a PICTURE can speak a thousand words....and THIS picture did just that.

Thinking and praying for you always.

Oh Stacy, every post just rips my heart out. Isaac and my baby Mackenzie are only 8 weeks apart and I just can't imagine all you have been through. I just love him, he is the most angelic looking little baby. Its unimaginable to me the loss you have had and all I can do is offer my sympathy and peace. He is so beautiful and I am so glad your family knows the Lord and you will be a reunited family one day....and thank goodness that will be for eternity...our life here will seem like a speck!
