Our Other Children (Psalms 139:13-16)

My wife and I have been blessed with two beautiful children. But we actually have two other children. Prior to the birth of our first daughter, my wife had two miscarriages. Both children did not make it beyond 16 weeks. We do remind our two children that someday, in Heaven, we will all meet our other family members. What a wonderful reunion that will be! We will see how God has raised them! We will find out if we have sons, daughters, or both! And we will learn the names that God has given them!


For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.

Psalms 139:13-16 (ESV)


All life begins with God. For reasons only He knows, our first two children were taken to be in Heaven. But we have His promise that we will see them again and learn how God named them and raised them! God takes care of all life and reminds us that every soul, from the moment of conception, is life.




Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
