Heaven's Newest Angel

We just wanted to let you know, that last night our beautiful baby boy left us to go to Heaven. We know that many have been praying and standing strong for us and continue to do so, and for that, we thank you... We treasured the moments we spent with him and we are at peace knowing that he is in Jesus' arms right now.

Thank you for your prayers and we will keep in touch...

Ecclesiastes 3:1-14

I am so, so, so sorry for your loss. This is the most devastating news even though we know Jesus is taking awesome care of him. We are praying unceasingly for you.

So heartbroken for you two...can't wait to see you both tomorrow and give you a hug.

I am so amazed with how strong you two have been through this whole process. I don't think I could have been.

Love you both...

I am so very sorry. I want you to know that we are lifting your whole family up in prayer. Keep reminding yourselves that God always has an ultimate plan...and he can and will bring healing and peace. He has done this for us in our miscarriage and I know he will for you as well.

I love you more than words...which is good because I don't have many words right now. My soul is crying out for you. Heaven is a more beautiful place today, so all we can do is keep our eyes fixed up there. I'm not too fond of God's timing and plan, but we have to trust that it is perfect in ways we can't understand. Justin, give my "sister" and 2nd mom the biggest hugs for me please. Thank you for your strength and devotion to God...it is in trials like this it is the most important.

I don't know if y'all remember us (Greg and Debra Amerson from the formerly Just Jesus class, now the Real Life class), but I want to express deepest sadness and grief for your loss. We are and will be praying in the days and weeks to come for you guys. God Bless you.

I'm so sorry for you. I don't even know what to say, except that I am praying for your peace, comfort, and rest in Christ. You are both the strongest people I know and I love you both more than words. Jesus loves you and so do I.

I am so sorry and so shocked. I've thought of you often and accidentally found your blog through Tena's site. I know you were blessed to experience Jonathan's life inside of you, I'm just so heartbroken for you that he went Home so soon. You are both in prayers.

Justin and Alyson - Our hearts are heavy with your burden, but we are faithfully lifting you up. Our amazing God will comfort you and strengthen you as you walk through this heartache. In times like these, the Holy Spirit will present your burden to the Father on your behalf ... rest in His love. He will raise you up again to sing of His goodness and faithfulness, but right now just let Him minister to your needs. We will continue to pray for you

Brian and Dara said...

I can barely fathom what this is like for you both. Johnathan was sucha miracle and blessed so many in such a short time. We told Brianna the news today and she held me as I cried and she told me, "It's ok Mommy, Jesus will hug Baby Johnathan for us now." We love you both!

Mike and I are praying for comfort and peace for you both. We are so sorry that it has to be this way but we know our good Lord already had a plan and His plan is good. Far beyond what we can comprehend.

Please know that there are countless friends who are with you and will stand beside you in your time of sorrow. You will be in my heart and in my prayers as you walk through this valley of incredible loss. You, both, are loved.
