I'm not sure whether you've seen this yet, but please take a moment to notice the continued joy expressed. What a testimony to seeing life in perspective and trusting in God!

Then feel free to stop over at 5 Minutes for Faith to read what I wrote about love.

Have a meaningful day and weekend!

  6. Wendy, I LOVE 5 minutes for Faith! I'll be back there for sure. The heart for God is so evident in those posts.

    I don't have an email for you so I thought I'd let you know here. Since I usually have few enough comments, I'm going to try to start responding to them more often. I thought I'd mention it in case you don't subscribe to comments when you post to my blog.

    I love you!

  7. Wow, that made me cry so bad. What a beautiful video. Thank you so much for sharing it.

  8. I have seen that video before. It's incredible. Beautiful ....

  9. And wonderful sentiment over at 5 Minutes for Faith. Children so often inspire us with their questions in such wise ways.

  10. Thank you for sharing this Wendy. Not only is it an amazing testimony to how God works in lives all over the world, but it makes me appreciate all the little miracles he's given me in my life.

  11. That was amazing and heart breaking and hopeful all at the same time. Thank you for giving our God glory and for sharing that with us!

  12. Beautiful message, thanks for sharing! :D

  13. Wendy,
    I read your blog this morning when I couldn't watch the video (didn't want to wake up the house). I just now watched it and realized immediately it was one I've seen before but won't ever tire of crying through again.

    Our church showed this clip on Eliot in Sunday worship a couple of months back. This is SUCH a beautiful testimony to parents' love, the value of life, and God's incredible magnitude to bless us. Thank you for sharing it.

  14. I linked here from Terri's site. This video was incredibly moving. 1 1/2 years ago I did my nine-month old niece's funeral. Her parents are not believers, so their was not the celebration of victory like their was for this little boy. But, for my wife, daughter and I who were present, we were able to feel victory in our hearts for my niece. We believe in the innocence of babies, so we trust fully that she is with God today. Thanks for posting.

  15. GREAT post. Popping in from SITS!

  16. P.S. You've won a prize in my photo caption contest! Congrats, and please send me your address. :)

  17. Stopping by to say hi. Have a wonderful week.

    Doodles--amazing, indeed.

    Cindy, it made me appreciate that as well. God gives and takes away.

    T. Anne, I liked how it combined all that as well. That is how I like to write, so I think that is why I was so taken by it.

    Danyelle, it is a *message*, isn't it!

    Anne, I love the word magnitude...very fitting for this and the parents earned so much of my respect!!!

    Warren, that must have been a moving ceremony, filled with feelings of joy for the baby in heaven, but sadness for the family as well. Thanks for stopping by! Bless you for shedding his light and love.
