Joy and Sorrow

I had just finished this drawstring sleeper for one friend when I found out another friend has miscarried this weekend. It is hard to have a divided heart, with joy for one and crushing sorrow with the other.

Psalm 34:18 -The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. 

While I do not understand, I am learning to say, The Lord gives and the Lord takes away. Blessed be the name of the Lord.


  1. this is such a hard lesson. but these past few weeks have reminded me once again that this just isn't home. and the sorrow we feel is to point us back to the father who restores our joy and to renew our anticipation of the life to come. come lord jesus come.

  2. Amen, Mika'l. I am with you. The more our grip loosens on this world the more we look forward to His coming. May it be soon. Miss you!

  3. Amen to Mikal's post... and what a beautiful sleeper to celebrate new life with.

  4. Thanks for stopping by! I have enjoyed yours but didn't see a way to comment. :) happy knitting!
