Windows in the NICU

Windows in the NICU

Before, Dominic, I’d never been to the Neo-natal Intensive Care unit (NICU) in my life. After Dominic, I never wanted to go to the NICU again in my life. God had a different plan. Doesn’t He always? I continue to be left breathless in amazement from the ways the Lord has shown Himself to me […]

The Ways of the Lord are Right

The Ways of the Lord are Right

I’m just always amazed by how much the Lord speaks through scripture when I’m actually paying attention. I would wager that making me pay attention might be the biggest spiritual benefit for me from Dominic’s death. Recently I’ve been reading the book of Hosea. Yes, I referenced these verses in an earlier post, but Hosea […]

Being Able to Put the Baby Down

Being Able to Put the Baby Down

The Lord just keeps showing me ways He is healing me. And, of course, it happened most recently (again) with a baby. My therapy baby, to be exact. I got to keep him and his siblings – the first time I’d seen him in two weeks, due to a minor flood in our basement that […]

Finding Less Fear

Finding Less Fear

I finished my scrapbook of our journey with Dominic. I started it not long after his death, it became a therapeutic project for me. Putting together his photos with our story…his story…well, His story – helped me make sense of it all, and has helped me heal. I finished everything except the pages on his […]

The Secret to Not Being Anxious

The Secret to Not Being Anxious

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” It’s one I read often, […]

6 Months to See God is Good

6 Months to See God is Good

Today Dominic would have been 6 months old. He and I share a “31st” – his birthday was July 31, and mine is March 31. Interesting how life can change the impact numbers can have. Today’s numbers, the 31st, and 6 months, definitely hit home. I did, today, what I haven’t done in quite a […]

Missing Memorial Sunday

Missing Memorial Sunday

Yesterday was Memorial Sunday at our church. That’s the time when they show a video with pictures to remember all of the members who have passed away in the previous year. Every other year, it was kind of no big deal. Many of the members were elderly, and a lot of them I didn’t know, […]

Where God Is Found

Where God Is Found

Losing my son has helped me figure out where God is found. I’m not proud of that fact. That it took the death of my perfect little man to let me truly see where God is, but it did. And, now that I’ve figured out where He is, I’m realizing just how much of my […]
