I am so pleased to share about the gift after a miscarriage that I received, completely free from While We’re Waiting.
This is one of the ministries that I have shared about on my Resource Page and I am so pleased to share about the gift that I received. The box came about 3 weeks after I submitted the information on their website.
I honestly can not tell you how amazing it is that there are ministries out there honoring babies and families with these types of gifts!
So, inside, here are the items that I found…the descriptions that I am sharing are from the letter that While We’re Waiting included inside…(item listings below taken from the enclosed paperwork to help you understand what each item is included for).
While We’re Waiting Unboxing
A book – Empty Arms by Pam Vredevelt
A handmade journal (mine had an L on it) – to record prayers and scriptures in it
A decorative cross – A reminder of the hope we have in Jesus Christ (John 3:16)
A “comfort handkerchief” to catch your tears, with a reminder that God will one day wipe away all our tears (mine had an L on it and the reminder embroidered on the back).
A bottle to remind you that God puts all your tears in a bottle and records them in His book (Psalm 56:8). Your tears are never wasted.
A puzzle piece to serve as a reminder that even though we can’t see the “big picture”, God does, and one day, He will make all things fit together. (Jeremiah 29:11)
A packet of sunflower seeds – A reminder that just as the sunflower turns its face to follow the sun, we need to daily turn our thoughts to the truths of God’s Words when we’re grieving (Philippians 4:8)
And, a list of Scriptures to comfort and encourage you in your grief.
Isn’t this just amazing! I love that there are “things” for Lily in her box…cards from friends, ultrasound pics, and now these sweet items…I am so grateful I found this ministry! Hopefully, if you are experiencing the loss of a child, you can find comfort in what they send to you as well.
Fill out the request…I promise you won’t regret it!
PS…if you want to submit for a friend, they just ask you give a small amount to help with shipping!!!
