7 Months

Happy 7 months in heaven, sweet little Eliana! We are missing you so much as Christmas draws nearer and nearer, and we are remembering you and loving you so much every day!

Over the last two days we have had a big snowstorm, so now your little garden dancer is dancing in the snow! I would so love to be able to spend this Christmas with you, but I feel so much peace when I think of how happy you will be celebrating with Jesus this year. I can't wait till one day when we will be together again. Until then, know that we love you so much, and you will always be our little girl.


  1. Happy 7 months in Heaven, Eliana :)

  2. Happy 7 months little one.

  3. Think of your precious little girl as she celebrates her 7th month in Heaven. There's no sweeter place I know...

  4. Hi Jess,
    Thank you so much for the beautiful ornament for the Ella and the precious stickers. Yesterday was such a bad day and your package came at a perfect time! Thank you for warming my heart.
    Thank you as well for your love and support! I hope you are feeling well!

  5. Thank you so much for the ornaments. I cried when I saw them. They are too precious and I am honored to hang them for our girls. Thank you dear friend.

  6. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand...and melting like a snowflake. --Marie Beynonray

    This quote is from the blog of Christina, wife of Drake, mother of Judson and Jessie. Precocious 3 year old Judson rapidly deteriorated from a neurological disease and passed within 5 mos...Her blog is wonderfully instructive about her grief and hope and the tremendous work her family is doing in Judson's memory.

    This is how her friend responded to the lovely quote above:

    Isn’t it great, in eternity, we will only sparkle and never melt… –K. H.

    A precious, Christ filled Christmas to you who don't grieve without hope because Jesus fulfilled this scripture:

    Isaiah 61

    Good News for the Oppressed

    1 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me, for the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor.

    He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted
    and to proclaim that captives will be released
    and prisoners will be freed.

    2 He has sent me to tell those who mourn
    that the time of the Lord’s favor has come,
    and with it, the day of God’s anger against their enemies.

    3 To all who mourn in Israel,
    He will give a crown of beauty for ashes,
    a joyous blessing instead of mourning,
    festive praise instead of despair.
    In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the Lord has planted for His own glory.
