Please Continue to Pray For Aidan's Family

Remember when I asked you to pray for Aidan and then had to let you know that he had passed away? I've never met his family, only knew of them through my friend Michelle. Well, I feel like I know Aidan's mother now, and my heart goes out to her.

She left this comment on my post about his death:
Hi, I'm Aidan's Mom, Regina (Regi). I can't thank you enough for praying for my son. I [was believing for] a full recovery, and now that he is gone, my faith is shaken. I actually sat down at my computer and googled, "Is there really a heaven? I hope there is because my Aidan would be there truly believed that he would make it" and this blog popped up. Can you believe that!? I am actually turning to Google for answers! Aidan died one month ago today, and I miss him so much and can't believe I have to live my entire life without him. Please keep praying for me and my family. My heart is broken, I've never felt such pain, and I am lost without him. I keep praying for a sign that he is in heaven and can hear me when I talk to him. It wouldn't make me miss him less, but it would give me some peace knowing that he is happy and will always be with me. Love, Regi

So please pray for Regi and her family. Please pray that God will comfort Regi and give her an unmistakable sign of his love for her. Pray that she will sense that Jesus is right there with her, weeping with her and giving her hope that she will indeed be with him in heaven.

If God gives you a word of comfort for Regi, please post a comment on this entry--or if you are reading this through email, send me a reply and I will post it for you.

Thank you.

I am lifting up Regi and her family. I believe absolutely that Heaven is real as such tender truths have been revealed to me in my heart through the Holy Spirit. And Aidan is there, fully healed.

How God works! He brought her to your blog! Praise God!

Psalms 119:28: My soul is weary with sorrow; strengthen me according to your word.

In your darkest hours, God's word will be your light and He will be your strength. Stay strong.

Aidan is in heaven you can be assured of that. I have lost two
children Monica a 6 year old and Michelle an 8 month old baby. Time will heal your wounds. Allow yourself time to grieve it is a part of the healing process.

I know how it was for me the day Monica died. I felt a place in my heart that was there just for her. I actually felt pain in my heart and I felt that I could not bear the pain and go on living. However I had two other children who needed me. I would feel like Monica would call me and I would actually answer and have to remind myself she was gone. When I would cook a meal my other children would say Monica liked this or Monica did not like it. I realize now they were dealing with grieving to but I was hurting to much to help them.

I had a close friend and she asked the Lord what she could do to help me and the Lord impressed her to just come to my house and pick me and my children up and to take me to her house and to tell me I had to just talk about Monica and nothing else. My friend had 5 children of her own. I cannot remember how many times she took me to her house. But it really did help me. Try to get in a support group you really need this. They did not have support groups when I lost my first Daughter.

Also Monica was in the hospital in intensive care and she died there. Monica died from complications from a Brain Tumor. A few days before she died one of the other parents who also had a child who was in the hospital gave me a book to read written by Dale Evans called Angel Unaware. This book was a big help. I asked the Lord to let me keep Monica and take my Baby. I was pregnant for Michelle at the time. God has a time to be born and a time to die he is the giver of all life. Be sure to read Randy Alcorn's book about heaven. Surround yourself with positive supportive people and prayer warriors to help with the burden you are bearing.

Also our husbands grieve differently than we do because God created them differently than us. They still grieve just not the same way.

Spend time talking to God he knows us because he created us in our Mothers womb. We are fearfully and wonderfully made. He knows the pain you are suffering and he wants to help you thru this.

If you need someone to talk to I will be glad to listen. I feel you need someone to talk to just about Aidan. If you would just like to e-mail I can listen that way too. But only if you want too. I am Sarah's mom.

Sending you prayers and God's Love,

Dolores
