Signs of Sweetness


Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.
St. Thomas Moore

So many signs of tenderness continue to pour in, along with meals and assurances of prayers, as we grieve the sudden loss of our baby Josephine during labour three weeks ago. We are so blessed by these many signs of sweetness. Thank you to everyone who has shown us such generosity and support. God is finding so many ways to say “I love you” to us every day.
Here are pictures of a few:

A plant for me to take care of, called a Josephine:



All who have been touched by beauty are touched by sorrow at it’s passing.
Louise Cordana


Lend me your hope for awhile. A time will come when I will heal, and lend my renewed hope to others.
Eloise Cole


When you are sorrowful, look again in your heart. You shall see in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.
Khalil Gibran


Josephine Pilar, our sweet little star, we are so grateful for you! We will love you forever!
