I had prayed that we would all be home for Christmas. We are....just not in the way I had hoped.
Thomas is at home in heaven.
We are here celebrating Christmas....and missing our baby.
I was reading the Christmas story from Luke this morning. I love where it says "the radiance of the Lord's glory surrounded them" (verse 9). A new friend of mine who lost her baby Samuel two years ago encouraged me to picture a happy and healthy Thomas celebrating Christmas in heaven. I like to think of him at the feet of Jesus, surrounded by angels and the "radiance of the Lord's glory."
