We then heard from the speaker of the day, Rebecca Rainey Mutz. Rebecca lost a little girl, Molly, after 7 days of life three years ago. She has since lost a son (Micah) who fell asleep in her womb, given birth to twin girls (Piper and Lily) and had two miscarriages. She has a little too much knowledge of the pain that was felt in that room on Saturday. Yet she still gave us a message of hope!
After she spoke, the children in attendance walked to the front of the auditorium and sang "Jesus Loves Me". Precious!!!
We then walked outside and gathered our balloons. Two white (for the miscarriages) and one pink. After taking a short walk through the parking lot with time to reminisce on the ones we have lost...we all gathered for the balloon release.
So many balloons. So many tears. So many broken hearts. So much love!
"If your heart is broken, you'll find God right there;
If you're kicked in the gut, He'll help you catch your breath."
Psalm 34:18 from The Message
