A Loss.

the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord –Job 1:21

I am at a loss today as to what to write.

This weekend my head was brimming with ideas.

Reality hit this morning.

My dear sweet friend had a miscarriage this morning.

They were suppose to find out if it was a boy or a girl today.

And now my mind is filled with questions.

How do I support her? Do I leave her alone for a little while or call her? What do I say?

All I know is that I hate that my friend is hurting. I hate that she is not going to know what happened to that sweet little baby…will she always wonder if it was a boy or a girl?

So with the loss I am at a loss. I don’t know how to support my friend.

And it breaks my heart…for her loss, for her pain, for her confusion…..

I cannot even begin to fathom how she is feeling.

So today all I can do is ask my God to wrap His arms around her and not let her go.

    I pray you’ll have just the right words (or just quiet presence, if necessary) for your friend.

    I thinking telling your friend you love them, and are so sorry for their loss is a good thing… letting them know you feel sad with them, and remembering it was their baby.. dreams went up with that baby.. who he/she was going to be… I’ve lost 3.. and I think those are things that I appreciate the most.. just knowing people realize how much and how hard it hurt ….
