Morning Musing

Posted by on Sep 1, 2016 in Blog, Home Is Where The Story Starts | 2 comments

heavenThis morning as I was waking up I was thinking about a professor who taught with Bruce at Newberry. Yesterday we learned that Cathy Lovett died. I liked Dr. Lovett. She was honest and said what she thought. You could trust her. When I miscarried our baby she gave us facts. She was a geneticist and to a scientist and a nurse the facts were what we needed. It was a gracious gift. One fact she gave us is that up to 50% of pregnancies end in miscarriage.

As I thought about that this morning I thought, THAT is a LOT of babies in heaven. What does God do with all of those babies? Well, maybe they grow up Miriam! (My author brain kicked in and I began imagining it.) Maybe as they grow up they are recorded in the heavenly perfect form of video so when their parents arrive they can watch it.

Then through my mind ran pictures of my grandparents, aunts, uncles, mother and father-in-law, and Mommy each with our child. When I thought of Mommy all of a sudden it wasn’t just my child. She stood there, leading a choir of her grandchildren. All of their faces were lifted to God as they sang a worship hymn.

Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty. . .

And the truth is. . . heaven will be so much more glorious than we can even imagine. . .

    Oh, Miriam. This morning you made me cry – both with sadness and then with joy. You are one amazing woman besides being my friend. I didn’t know about your miscarriage. So very-very sorry. And I’m sorry for the recent loss to you of a wonderful mentor and guide.

    I absolutely loved your growing-up-in-heaven video thought, as well as your baby surrounded by loved ones. Beyond precious.

    You are an inspiration to so many. Thank you.
