Merry Katherine's Valentines Day Present for Me, 2009

Continued from my 2/24/09 Post:  Today I found the song to play for you of Merry Katherine's gift from Heaven to comfort her mommy's grief -- she knows my heart; she knows my fears.  I found this c.d. on 2/10/09 that she had made for herself which included this song:  "Only Hope" by Caedmon's Call; its words reassured this mommy's heart that she knew and reveled in the saving grace of our Lord for herself.  I think she wanted me to find it just in time for Valentines Day!  Thank You, God for Your tender mercies!  Thank You for showing me her trust was firmly planted in You.  Thank You that she is now safe in her Savior's arms.  

I miss you, Merry Katherine, and I love you with all my heart.  Thank you for this precious Valentines Day Present!  Hug Jesus for me; thank Him for me for saving your precious soul, for holding you, and for hugging you for me!  And Happy Valentines Day to you too, my precious baby girl!

"Only Hope"
Caedmon's Call
Found on 2/10/09 on a c.d. she had made for herself!

Depth of mercy, can there be
Mercy still reserved for me?
Can, my god, Your wrath forbear--
Me, the chief of sinners, spare?

It's my only hope,
You're my only hope!
It's my only hope of Heaven--
At the cross forgiven!

I have long withstood Your grace,
Long provoked you to Your face,
Would not hearken to Your calls,
Grieved You by a thousand falls,

It's my only hope,
You're my only hope!
It's my only hope of Heaven--
At the cross forgiven!

There for me the Savior stands, 
Shows His wounds and spreads His hands,
Face to face before the Son, 
And like Isaiah, I'm undone . . . 

Depth of mercy vast and free,
So much deeper than the sea,
God of love, You heard my cry,
Now into Your open arms I fly!

It's my only hope,
You're my only hope!
It's my only hope of Heaven--
At the cross forgiven!

I'm so sorry for your loss- what heartache! I think all grief over death is awful, and difficult circumstances make processing the grief more difficult- I'm just so sorry that you lost your daughter the way you did. I'm glad you found this song and were comforted a little.

Dear Emily,

Thank you for your kind words and for sharing the joy I had to find Merry Katherine's song.

I also thank you for opening up your heart to me and others on your blog as you share your heart-piercing grief over the loss of your precious baby boy. Your candor is so refreshing; it helps me to walk back through some of my own grief issues, to open them up again to the Lord for His continued help and healing.

May God bless you Emily and may He continue to heal your broken heart all through this lifetime. I know we both anxiously await to see our little ones again and to have our Heavenly Father wipe ALL our tears away when "all sorrow and sighing shall flee away"!

In His love,
