I wanted to share one very special ornament that we have purchased and will hang on our tree this year, and all our years to come.
The picture is a little wonky, but you can kind of see it. A shell, with a pearl in it, inscribed with, “Every life leaves something beautiful behind.”This is for our sweet baby, whom we never got to meet.
We miss her every day. But she was here.

And of all the things she left behind, the biggest is hope.

We made her. And we will make another baby, because she proved that we can. So it is with tears and hope that we will hang this ornament on our tree this year.

‘Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord…’ -psalm 31:24
‘I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in His word I put my hope…’ -psalm 130:5
 
‘May the God of all hope fill you with joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” -romans 15:13
