Sweet Words

Last night at dinner some of the little kids were discussing Heaven.  I don’t know if it was because we had just come home from 5:30 mass and they were commenting on something said during the sermon, or maybe something else brought up the subject, but I overheard the conversation as I was clearing the dinner dishes:
Alex:  It’s not like that.  You don’t need a house.
Aislynn:  Yes, you do.  Where are you going to sleep?
Alex:  I don’t know, but I don’t think there are houses in Heaven.
Aislynn:  There are.
A.J.:   How do you know — have you been there, huh? (sarcastic child of mine!)
Avery:  Well, I’m looking forward to going to Heaven one day.
Alex:  What? Why? You know you have to die to get there, right?  (factual and practical boy of mine!)
Avery: I know. But I’m still looking forward to it.  Because then I’ll get to see our baby.

Then it was quiet for a few seconds…  

Alex:  Well, that’s one good thing.  But still.  I’m in no hurry.

How sweet of Avery to say that.  Although hearing her words sent a quick little stab through my heart,  it  felt good to hear that our baby – who would have been born this month – is still thought of and remembered :)

    When my father-in-law died I bought the book Heavenfor Kids- adapted from the best selling book Heaven by Randy Alcorn. And yes, it’s so sweet that they are remembering the baby you lost.

    Oh Katrina,

    I did not know you had a miscarrage~
    (I guess I don’t always come by often to read)

    I will keep you in my prayers!
    I am sorry for your loss!

    Kids do say the to cutest things!
    He’s so sweet to have remembered!

    Peace and Joy,

    I was reading your blog and came back to this post. When I left the comment above back on Dec 16
    I did not know I was pregnant. We found out on Dec.25
    {Christmas morning}……but I miscarried on Jan 20.
    I was 8w 4ds. This was our 7th child and my first miscarriage. I pray God will give us a rainbow baby!
    {baby after a miscarriage} I am a Catholic too.

    I started a new blog to journal my loss.

    My Journey Through Miscarriage

    Peace and Blessings,
