For those walking the path of grieving the loss of a baby or child, we offer grace for the journey and a friend to walk with you... There are moments on this walk when we feel we cannot go on. Moments when a friend comes alongside us to point us again to the One who sustains us. A friend to lift us in prayer. A friend to allow us to lean on her as she leans on Him. A friend, who is not afraid to walk through the valley in the rain, with a storm mounting. She is not afraid, because the Lord is her strength and her shield. She is not afraid because she doesn't walk alone. And because He has walked with her through the valleys and the storms, He has sent her to walk with you. And He will carry you both through the rain, through the storm, through the unknown dark alleys to secure, dry ground. Whether you are a newly bereaved mother or a seasoned mom who has watched the Lord make beauty from ashes in your life. Whether you need someone to lean on or you are the shoulder that can bear the burden, we hope you will walk with us as we are walking with Him. We hope you will join us with our broken umbrellas, with all our little quirks and imperfections in our various stages on this walk, as His grace washes over us in the pouring rain.

Show Some Love to this Week's WWY Feature, Michelle and Read about her sweet Janie Beth

This week's featured blogger on WWY is Michelle Karr from The Journey of the Karr's. She shares the story of her sweet Janie Beth, who was born on December 29, 2009 and lived for 22 hours before going home to heaven on December 30, 2009. Janie suffered from a fatal form of dwarfism. Michelle has three other children, and is currently expecting one more.

In a recent post, Michelle shared the struggles of walking an emotional tightrope, as she grieves the loss of her daughter and awaits the arrival of the child growing within her womb. I think many of us can relate to those tight rope feelings.

Michelle is often offering encouragement and prayers through comments on other blogs. I hope you will take a few minutes this week to stop by and encourage and pray for her.

Also...just wanted to thank you for your kind words while I was on my soapbox last week. I knew you ladies would understand!

Have a blessed week...love to all!
