Words Can't Express

In the last two weeks, I have found words to be difficult. Upon the news that our precious baby had died, I can't count how many times people helplessly said to me, "I just don't know what to say!" From strangers... friends... family... even my husband. Truth is, there are no words. I don't know what to say. Nothing a person can say can make the pain go away. There are no words to make us feel better. There's nothing we need to hear that we don't already know.

The thing that has ministered to our hearts the most and brought a tremendous amount of comfort in our pain is the love, support and prayers from people... all over the world. Everyone from close friends to complete strangers have found ways to let us know that they are praying for us. I don't even know how to begin to thank them.

I write now to thank each of you for every prayer you ever offered on our behalf. There's so much on my heart, so much I want to say, so many emotions that I feel, and a lot of pain that has yet to heal. In the coming days and weeks, perhaps I will be able to get it from my heart on to this computer screen in front of me. But right now, all I can say is Thank You. I don't know how to say it and be able to express the amount of gratitude I feel...

Just, Thank you so much.

Love you, precious girl.

I've tried to write another email over and over in my head, and even knowing the pain myself, I join the masses in saying I still don't know what to say.

I read your precious post below and heard about your loss from another blogger but just like Ashleigh said above I join in saying I don't know what to say. But,my heart aches for you and your husband and I am praying for you both!!

I agree: it is hard to find the words. Even though I've been through the exact same thing myself, I can think of nothing brilliant to say... please know that you're loved, you're thought of, you're prayed for. *hugs*

aww, Brittney. My heart aches for you as you are suffering above what I can even imagine. But I can think of and pray for you, and pray that God would bring you closer to Himself during this season of your life, to comfort you and carry you. Bless you Brittney...I know it's hard, and I know I don't know what to say. But please know my heart hurts for can't be easy.
