Sometimes there are no words.
A precious young couple in our family lost their baby Tuesday night. Three weeks from delivery, there is no explanation why the baby's heart suddenly stopped beating. This morning she delivered their stillborn son.
What do you say? What can you possibly say or do to ease that pain?
I tried to make a card which will honor their little boy who has flown to heaven. Yes, we know he is safe in the arms of Jesus, but it still hurts to know he won't be resting in the arms of his parents here and now.
The bird is painted with pearl white Lumiere. It looks harsh in the picture, but really adds a beautiful touch of angel dust.
The words have been "kissed" with Boutique Borders in Twilight over Heavenly Blue. I've also used Buttercup ink, ribbon, and paper.
I hope it brings comfort and conveys in a picture what words can never hope to express.
Until next time,
