Dashed dreams into reason for hope

The due date anniversary of our first baby, Baby C Sharp, is coming up. We honestly lost the baby so early that, if there was a due date established, I don’t know what it was and I’m pretty confident the Lord made is so for my peace and comfort.

The following is a note from Facebook (the only one I ever wrote back when notes were “in” on Facebook). It perfectly describes my heart to this day regarding the sweet baby we lost. I’m so grateful for a Creator who perfectly orders our lives and then graciously and mercifully walks through the ordained days with us. What divine provision.

“We are rejoicing that Baby Sharp is in Heaven already praising the God of this universe. Praise the Lord this little one did not have to enter this wretched world, but immediately entered life in Eternity with His Savior. How gracious a God to save this sweet child from the evil encountered on this earth. We do not mourn as though we’ve been slighted or cheated, but mourn for the loss we were so expecting to enjoy. His mercies are new each morning and we cling to those mercies daily. We are surrounded by a sweet group of friends and family who have faithfully supported, prayed, and encouraged us. We look forward to the blessings that will come forth from this season, as well as the refinement we are sure to experience. Thank you for loving us and praying with us.

Grace to you-
Melissa & Brady Sharp

Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
