The Healing Sparrow

The words are a quote from a hymn “It Is Well With My Soul” by a Christian man just after his children died tragically at sea.

It is written in my husband’s handwriting and is the phrase I cried over and am healing with. The bird is a sparrow after the verse in Matthew saying that not one (sparrow which can be bought two for a penny) falls to the ground outside your Father’s care.

The sparrow is a humble, common bird. Miscarriages are common and often dismissed. But there is nothing our God looks at as common.

Nothing He shrugs off. All of it is meant to reflect His glory. So, even in this agony, there is beauty and hope.

I don’t have words for how much this is helping me in my healing process and that I will always have a way to honor my babies and my God whose goodness shines so brightly in my tragedy.
