Saturday's Sayings - If God Chose the Broken...







God chose what the world considered Broken...

~1 Corinthians 1:27



Saturday's Sayings

If God Chose the Broken...

(Letter to My Friends, Family, Church, and Community)







If people do not begrudge a sweet little old lady for knitting everyday as she works her craft for her loved ones with her yarn, so too I ask myself,


Why do people begrudge child-loss grievers for daily re-knitting their damaged hearts, souls, and spirits back together after they had been unraveled beyond recognition from the first day their child was ripped from their sides


Child-Loss Grief and Trauma 

is a Daily Process, 

expected to last a Life-time, 

until that beautiful Day when we are

rejoined with our little ones.


Please treat us with kindness, 

and 

at the very least,

Learn to respect 

what you have No Way Of Knowing:

how Unbearable

the Child-Loss Grief and Trauma process is 

upon our severely traumatized lives

every 

day.

Every.

Day. 

I repeat,

You would have No. Way. Of. Knowing. 

or 

even

Beginning. To. Know. 

what we deal with, 

unless you yourself also

Lost Your Child, 

and 

We would Never, 

Ever, 

wish 

that 

upon 

You 

or 

Anyone. 

So please, 

Just respect our process, 

And know

Always keep in mind

There is a lot about our Child-Loss Grief and Trauma 

you. will. never. know

Be thankful for that,

And,

please

Please,

Love us

Where. We. Are.

Not

Where. You. Want. Us. To. Be.



God doesn't blame the broken

for their brokenness;

God loves the broken...

Can you?

Please remember what God's Word says,



1 Corinthians 1:27
New International Version (NIV)

"But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; 
God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong."

Me too, dear Amber, me too. My heart is so broken, I cannot even begin to understand what today's brokenness entails; it is something much deeper than my heart can tell me ~ It's days like this I am so very thankful God hears our heart's cry, and He knows what its groans mean... and His Son and Holy Spirit are ever imploring Him for our brokenness and daily hurt. What a loving God we serve; what a healing, loving God we need. May our Lord pour His healing blessings on your broken heart precious one... ~Much love to you and yours~
