I went to your testimony with my wife at the Unionville Alliance Church last night. Thank you very much for sharing.
You are good servants of our Lord Jesus Christ. You encouraged those who didn’t know our Lord in the past. You conveyed our Lord’s message of the everlasting life.
I know as dad and mom, it is pain to go through these days. I can feel what you face, it is not easy at all. Thanks our Lord Jesus Christ who love you and your family, I am sure you are the salt and light of our Lord, bringing hope to those who are lost.
Yes, our Lord promised:
13 Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope.
14 We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.
15 According to the Lord’s own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep.
16For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
17After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-17)
May our Lord Jesus Christ always be with you and your family.
As a mother, I can understand the pain & suffering of watching your baby grew sick and your grief of loosing a child. But as parents, I hope you can leave your grief behind, put your memory of your lost child in your heart , and DEVOTE ALL YOUR TIME & LOVE to your 2 older children. I believe the two of you have already put enough to the attention & caring of the sick child and now it’s time for the living ones.
You said yourself that you’ve spent all the time in the hospital with your baby and the 2 older boys did not even see you. I don’t know your family and how you’ve treated the 2 boys during that time. But now that your baby had been dead for a while and I still hear about your writing and telling about him. What about the older boys? They might not say anything, but deep in their hearts they might feel that they’re being neglected and compared your love for them & their dead little brother. (I hope I’m wrong.) You might consider having some professional people or close friends talk to them and find out how they REALLY FEEL.
You were talking about fairness yesterday. Let’s be FAIR TO THEM.
We should stand firm on our believe in God, and that there’s always a reason for whatever happen – good or bad. God always work things in HIS own special ways. Maybe something wonderful would happen after the sadness. Be grateful for what we have already possessed. Forgive me if I sounded criticising.
Hope your family heal quickly and live happily everafter.
