2 years in Heaven

Noah, it’s hard to believe that 2 years ago today you took your last breath in our arms and met Jesus. It seems like yesterday but also feels like a lifetime ago. Even though you aren’t physically here with us, your life continues to have a ripple effect, impacting many. I thank God for giving you to us. Even though a piece of me is forever missing, I would rather have only had you for a moment then to have never have had you and missed out on a lifetime of blessings your life has brought us. You have taught us so much! You are missed more than words could ever express! I love you my precious son and can't wait for that day I get to hug you again! <3

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
Psalm 23:4

This verse became real to me the day Noah died. The weeks leading up to Noah's birth and subsequent death were filled with wondering "how am I going to ever be able to handle watching my son die". Just the thought alone had constantly brought me to tears and took my breath away. But in that moment when we knew Noah's heart was slowing down, there was incredible peace. A peace that I can't even begin to describe, nothing like we had ever felt before. You could literally feel God in that room, His arms wrapped around us, holding us close. There were no tears as Noah took his last breath (those came later), only words of thankfulness and praise for all we had been blessed to experience with Noah. God met us there in that very moment, not before we needed it but right when we needed it

Each time he said, "My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness." So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.
2 Cor 12:9 (NLT)


  1. Saying prayers for you and your family today as you remember the joy of your sweet little Noah! May God be close to your hearts today and always!


  2. Thinking of y'all during this time... It will be two years for me one month from today. I've been feeling the heaviness setting in a bit. Love to y'all.

  3. Very well said. I would never wish in a million years not to have had this experience because I did get some time with my daughters, but I need that reminder. The blessing of even getting to know them at all. Happy Birthday sweet Noah<3

  4. This is such an amazingly beautiful youtube video. I too, had to deliver children (twins) into the world knowing that they wont be here long. Pain is too intense for me right now.

  5. Praying for your family this week. I can't imagine the pain of having to hold your sweet boy until he passed away. I have a friend who recently had to go through this. I am sending her a link to your blog. I'm sure she needs someone to talk to who knows exactly what she's going through. <3 Like you said, I am glad too that I spent the little bit of time I did with my son, I would rather known him for a little while than not at all. He most definitely changed my life.

    Hope your day is good! <3

  6. Thinking of you as you pass another angel-verssary ((hugs))

  7. Jenn It must of been a sad day thank God for the hope of Heaven or it would be unbearable. I love that song it is so comforting! Praying for you and your family. Love the pictures of Noah and Olivia in the previous post, so sweet!
