Walking With You ~ Being Reunited With Our Babies


Walking With You was created by Kelly at The Beauty of Sufficient Grace to help support those who have lost a child. Together we share our stories, helpful information, scriptures, encouraging words, prayer requests, and more.

This week, we are sharing what it will be like the day we are reunited with our precious babies in heaven.
I believe that it is impossible to know what Heaven is actually going to be like. All I know, from what is shared in the Bible, is that Heaven will be more glorious than our minds can comprehend. I long to go there. As I type this I am reminded of a song that I learned with my children many years ago that was on a Psalty the Singing Songbook Video. It is titled Heaven is a Wonderful Place. It goes like this:

Heaven is a Wonderful Place, Filled With Glory and Grace, I Want to See My Saviour's Face, Cause Heaven is a Wonderful Place.





Heaven Is A Wonderful Place - Psalty Kids Praise


Over the years I was afraid of dying. I was sure of my salvation and that I was going to go to Heaven, but I was still very afraid. Not any longer! I am assured of seeing my Saviour's Face and what a Glorious Day that will be!

When I get to Heaven I know that meeting my Saviour face to face will be more than my mind can comprehend. I know that there is nothing that I can compare it to.

Over the past several years, as I have lost some precious loved ones it seems as though Heaven get sweeter and sweeter.

When I was born, my grandfathers had already passed away. Many people had told me what a wonderful and Godly man my one Grandfather had been. I was probably about 8 or 9 and I was feeling sad about not having a grandfather. One night I had a dream that when I got to Heaven, my Grandfather was there and he knew me. That was very special to me and I still remember how wonderful I felt when I woke up, and I really felt as though God was comforting me.

The past five years has brought the death of loved ones that has hurt to the core of my being. My Father had struggled many years with his health and escaped death several times. In 2004, Jesus took him home. I loved my Dad so much and miss him terribly. He loved my children so much! He especially loved babies, so since losing Faith, I envision my Dad holding her and watching over her.

In 2006, my best friend, Tammi, lost her battle with breast cancer. She was that special kind of friend that you could share everything with. She loved you and cared about you with no strings attached. She would remember things about my children that I couldn't remember. I was with her the morning she took her last breath. I was grateful to be with her and it was also one of the hardest things in my life!

Tammi also loved my children so much! She also enjoyed my babies a great deal. When we we at church she always held the babies. I like to think of her taking care of Faith also. I see her holding her and singing with her.

When I am reunited with Faith I know that my heart will finally be completely healed. My arms will finally quit aching. I cannot wait to hold her in my arms! I also truly believe that she will know me. What a Day that will be!



And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Revelation 21:4


How awesome is that God will wipe away our tears, there will be no more death, sorrow, crying or pain! I cannot wait until that Day!

It's definitely hard to comprehend the full glory of Heaven when all we have to go by is what is here on earth. We can try to imagine but I bet we don't even come close. I agree with you about Heaven being sweeter.

Karen...what an indescribably amazing day that will be...I cannot imagine all that He has prepared for us...all that heaven's glory holds. But...I am so grateful for the promise heaven holds and for the One who holds all of us until that sweet, sweet day. I haven't sent the Dreams of You Packages like I meant to, yet...but they will go out soon! I'm so far behind...so grateful for the Lord's grace and His new mercy's every morning!

I love the verse at the end of this post. Such comfort in that promise!!

Love to you,
Kelly

I, too, envision loved ones who have gone before me - such as my grandparents and my husband's grandparents - holding onto my sweet boy, and it brings me comfort knowing he is held in their arms. I think you chose the perfect adjective to describe what Heaven will be like: the sweetness of being united with our Savior, with our precious children, and all of our family and friends who know now His glory.
