Bible Study Memorial Video

Last night was the final night of the bible study I have been doing with other baby loss moms.  For the closing session, we had each sent photos and memorial items to our wonderful leader Kristie and she made beautiful memorial videos to honor each of our sweet babies.  I was so pleased with how Karinne's video turned out and I wanted to share it here.  Be sure to pause the music on the playlist at the bottom of the blog before you push play on the video.

This bible study has been such an AMAZING blessing to me!  Being able to "meet with" and talk with these other moms who truly understand has been extremely helpful to me in this grief journey.  And the book we used - Threads of Hope, Pieces of Joy - provided such amazing scriptures and reflection questions that helped me work through the various emotions related to mourning Karinne.  I still have a long ways to go, but this study has truly taken me to a new and better place!  When I think back to that particularly difficult night in August when I was looking through various baby loss blogs and came across the "Anchored by Hope" website and read about the study - I'm just so awestruck at God's amazing ways!  Thank you Lord for leading me to this group and for carrying me through the study.

I'm going to miss all of these women so much who stuck with the study since September.  I know that we will keep in touch through email and our blogs, but it just won't be the same as the Sunday evening conference calls filled with words of understanding, tears and laughter.  I sincerely pray God's blessing and healing upon the hearts of each of these beautiful mothers and their families:  Kristie, Jamie, Kim, Michelle, Shandrea, and Susie - Love You All!!
