If You Believe

One of the MANY pictures I get sent from other babyloss mommas.....for her Name Gallery!

If You Believe
Mary Thompson
(dedicated to Lori and Frank Walsh, and baby Joseph)

He will guide you on your way-if you believe.
Roll the clouds of doubt away-if you believe.
God will hold you in His arms, give you hope when hope is gone.
(He will give you all you need-if you believe.)

He will calm you deepest fears-if you believe.
And dry up all your tears-if you believe.
God will take your broken heart,
In His hands the healing starts,
Then His peace you will receive-if you believe.

For God will never leave your side.
That’s a promise He provides.
He will see you through everything you do-
with His love.

You will feel Him call your name- if you believe.
And you’ll never be the same-if you believe.
God will fill your very soul with the grace
to make you whole.
And His love will set you free-if you believe.

A song written by a beautiful woman.
  For the past 4 years, we have gotten up Christmas morning and gone to Mass as soon as the gifts are open.  We try to make the Mass that we think we "know" that Mary and her family sing.  Just four of them and a guitar.  Every year, I cry.

But last year, I cried even harder.  I don't know how much Mary knows how much it meant to us for her to sing at Jamie Lynn's funeral.  It was comforting to know that she had been there for her own family member that went through a similar experience.  It is a burden and a blessing to carry a child knowing that your first Hello will also be your Goodbye. 

I was driving home today from work and this song (written above) came into my head.
I confess, I was tired.  I was tired of everyone asking if I was just ready to have this baby.
I answered, truthfully...honestly...I am great!  I am not uncomfortable at all.

  What I didn't say?  Button can stay in there as long as he/she needs. 
I just want Button to be okay...no matter what it takes.

I need to remember that I need to "believe"
....because that is all that counts in the end.
