A HUG IN YOUR HEART

I want each and everyone of you to know that you are always on my mind. I continue to pray to God for your comfort, understanding and strength. I have in the last six months been extremely happy to see babies born to a few of the baby lost mothers who received a handkerchief from me. Followed along with their fears as their pregnancies progressed. I pray for your prayers to also be answered. I have never in my life seen so much heartache and pain. My heart is often heavy with your sorrow. It hasn't broken me or wanted to make me run away. What it has done is given me more faith in our God. I am and always will be amazed at the strength of a broken woman. I admire each and everyone of you. I know that your days are not easy and your burdens are heavy. I also know that God is your strength and with Him all things are possible.

The reason I say this is because I don't always have the opportunity to come and visit your blog. I often feel badly about that. As my ministry continues it may become more difficult to read each and everyone of your blogs. I have mailed out close to 140 handkerchiefs to woman who have lost a child. As the numbers increase with time (which I wish I could stop) it will become harder to follow each person. I hope you understand that I will never forget you. My plan right now is to continue to follow each of you until it becomes impossible to do so. There are many of you that I consider to be very close with and our relationship will not change. I will never stop praying for you and your families. You all mean the world to me.

I thank God each day for putting this ministry into my heart. When I see a handkerchief posted on a blog I know that I have given you a piece of my heart. This Christmas a woman in Michigan lost several family member to a horrible fire. I was able to send her a handkerchief for her tears. When I saw that she had the handkerchief next to her on an interview for her local news it touched my soul. To think that I could give you a moment of comfort makes my heart fill with joy. There was a second interview that was recently put on the news page that I would love for you to watch. Kristie is a friend of Amanda's so I will send you to her blog.

I also want you to know that I will never stop fighting to get the word out about the needs of the grieving mother.

I also want to thank the families that have sent me donations, they will be going towards my next purchase of handkerchiefs, handkerchief mailing boxes, tissue, the embroidery, stamps and other supplies.

I was looking for a picture, something with a hug from me to you and I came across the above picture and it was called "A Hug In Your Heart" and thought it was beautiful.

You are so sweet to want to keep up with everyone! I totally understand why that would not be possible. I try to keep up with just a few blogs and find myself falling behind constantly!

I know God is working through you and your ministry. For you to keep moving forward and helping more moms is what is important. Thank you so much for all you have done for Amanda and may your ministry continue to provide comfort for grieving moms in the future.

Much love and many hugs!

You are a wonderful person Debby and you put in so much time with us all. I know I certainly understand how difficult it is to keep up. I fall behind all the time.

Amy said...

You are such a beautiful person. I thank you for your ministry. Just knowing someone is out there who genuinely cares for broken hearts means SO much.

Debbie,

Your ministry is such a blessing to those of us in our hours of need. There are just not enough words to adequately express the kindness you show our baby lost community. And, the fact that you care and understand and want to educate others on what "the loss of a child means" is admirable.

Much love to you and may we all show you a blessing in return so that you can continue to help others :)

140 handkerchiefs. 140 brokenhearted mothers. Endless, endless amounts of tears.

After seeing my neighbor tonight, who lost her two beautiful girls, I realized just how beautiful your ministry is.

SPECIAL REQUEST: I would sincerely appreciate it if you did not share my Ministry on Facebook or Pinterest so I can continue to mail out my handkerchief's. These audiences are just too big for my small ministry.....thank you.
