|St. Lukes- Woodlands Family Birthing Center|
We took a round of packages to the hospital today!!!
What a blessing to be able to provide these items for these precious families!
We dropped off 25 comfort bags at St. Lukes in The Woodlands.
In our comfort bags we have a copy of the books I Will Carry You and Hearing Jesus Speak Into Your Sorrow. These books were lovingly donated in our book drive in February by so many amazing, loving people. In each book we put an "in memory" label for each person who gave in memory of a baby. Gideon's Warriors also included a CD of music, a candle, a beautiful piece of jewelry made by a dear friend of mine who lost her daughter 21 years ago, some tea, seeds to plant a garden, a card, some resources and a letter written from me to these newly bereaved mommies. I pray and hope that these items really help heal the hearts of these mommies who are just beginning their lifelong journey of grief.
I know, for me, it was so amazing to be able to have something in my hands after I got home that I could look at, listen to, wear and read after Gideon passed away. Reading books and listening to music and having jewelry that reminded me of him was truly a gift.
I love you.
We are confident that as you share in our sufferings, you will also share in the comfort that God gives us. -2 Corinthians 1:7
