for my friend

I've had such a heavy heart for my friend since last week. Wanting to say something while not having a single word that could possibly make her hurt ease up. She was due to have a little one just after ours is due, but her sweet baby slipped away and, in the words of my friend's mom on facebook, their little heartbeat went to Heaven. Know that I've been praying for you, my friend. This song makes me think of you and makes me so very grateful for the "sweeter song that calls" us Home.

You're Not Alone by Meredith Andrews

I searched for love
When the night came and it closed in
I was alone
but you found me where I was hiding
and now I'll never ever be the same
It was the sweetest voice that called my name
saying

You're not alone
for I am here
let me wipe away your every fear
My love I've never left your side
I have seen you through the darkest night
and I'm the one who's loved you all your life
All of your life

You cry yourself to sleep
cause the hurt is real
and the pain cuts deep
All hope seems lost
With heartache your closest friend
and everyone else long gone

You've had to face the music on your own
but there is a sweeter song that calls you home
saying

You're not alone
for I am here
let me wipe away your every tear
My love I've never left your side
I have seen you through the darkest nights
And I'm the one who's loved you all your life
All your life

Faithful and true... Forever
For my love will carry you....

You're not alone
for I... I am here
let me wipe away every fear... Oh yeah
My love I've never left your side
I have seen you through your darkest night
Your darkest night
And I'm the one who's loved you all your life
All of your life

So terribly sad! I'm so sorry for your friend. Some things we don't understand and won't get the answers to on this side of heaven. I love how her mom put it about their little heartbeat going to Heaven.

Their little heartbeat's story isn't finished yet. God had a purpose. Still does. He had a plan. Still has that too. And He alone fulfills it.

Ps 138:8, "The LORD will fulfill His purpose for me; Your love, O LORD, endures forever - do NOT abandon the work of Your hands."

Phil 1:6, "Being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you WILL carry it on to completion until the Day of Christ Jesus."

God still has an earthly plan for this heavenly heartbeat!

I will pray for your friend.

Great song. I know I cried many nights and feel like that was a very "dark night". Thanks for the reminder.
