Take It To The Lord

Yesterday my friend, Holly, gave birth to her first child. A little girl named Abigail.

This is what they posted on their Facebook. I know they won't mind me sharing.

"Today, our baby girl danced her way into Heaven. Before we knew her, before she could smile at us, before she knew how to walk-she knew how to dance!

We know she is in the arms of Jesus and is not hurting at all. Though we are hurting, we find comfort in the Strength of the Lord.

She is loved and will never! never be forgotten.

It was nothing we or the doctors did or didn't do, when she came out, we found the umbilical cord wrapped around her feet as though she were dancing-thus the reason we can say she danced her way into Heaven.

Since we knew you were a girl, we patiently waited on our princess, but when you got here you were but a sleeping beauty!!!!

As we know, there is a time to weep, a time to laugh, a time to mourn, but don't forget to dance!!!

Dear friends and family, do not feel bad for our little girl because, her mom said that on Sunday she felt like her baby girl was dancing, so you can draw your own conclusions, we have drawn ours.

To die before birth is very hard but only for those still living. But you our baby girl, it is not hard at all, but very wonderful for Heaven is your home and it's all you'll ever know. One day we will go home-to you and our Savior and come to know the both of you; with kisses and hugs, we will walk and talk forever. We love you and will miss you in every way very much.

In loving memory of Abigail Renee

Your Dad and Mom"

Please be in prayer for this sweet young couple. Thank you.
