July 20, 2008 Happy Heaven Day Isaac

I love that when Luke went to speak to Isaac to tell him he loved him he looked up and not down at the ground. He knows. He knows where Isaac is, you can tell by the look on his face!

How sweet is this? It is Luke praying for God to take good care of Isaac and Asher!

We still have eachother!

Luke yelling another message to his brothers.

Letting Go...

How does it smell Ben?

Probably the closest we will get to having a picture of all four boys, this side of Heaven.

This is Ben sharing, it is an occasion worthy of a photo!

Happy Heaven Day, Isaac! We love you and are so proud to be your family!

Daddy, I don't think six balloons will do it, you might be a bit too heavy!

Two red because Ben INSISTS red is Isaac's favorite color, two purple and two orange because Luke insists his favorite would be orange like mommy and two purple because Luke things Jesus likes purple.

Ben says Isaac's favorite color is we picked up these awesome red daisies, three of them, one for each year.

Up up and away...on their way to Heaven...we sent six balloons, one for each day Isaac lived and also because there are six members of our family. Luke is confident Asher, Isaac and Jesus will care for our balloons until we can all be there to share them! Who could argue?

Wow, they sure go high!

Where's Ben?

Happy Heaven Day, Isaac! Such gorgeous pictures. The one of Luke looking up is priceless. The innocence of children can teach us so much. God uses them in such powerful ways. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers, today and always.

What a lovely celebration. Thanks for sharing the pictures. With our daughter's one year Heaven Day coming soon, it's good to get some ideas for celebrating.

Those are truly amazing and sweet pictures. I love the one of your oldest looking up and talking to his brother.
Are Isaac and Asher right next to each other? Does Asher just not have a head stone yet?

Ok, I'm emotional enough myself today and this just put me over the edge.

Kristy, what a beautiful post and thank you for sharing Isaac with us in such a precious way. Luke and Ben made the entire experience so special and how real is Jesus to them??? OH MY - beautiful!

God is amazing and I love how He just cared for all of you in such particular ways - colors that spoke so clearly to the children!

Oh how I can't wait to rejoice with everyone the moment we are all in heaven - united with all those we loved this side of heaven!

Hugs from our family tonight!

Thank you Kristy. Thinking of you. We sent off balloons yesterday for Larsons 6 month b-day. A couple days early but we were all together. I feel like I am constantly having to release him back to the Lord. God is so good thought and He continue to walk with us.

Hi Kristy,

I love the way you teach Luke & Ben about their brothers, and the love that shines through the photographs you posted. Thank you for sharing them.

Love, Lisa

Thank you for making such a personal moment something you shared. Your family is an inspiration and I could just imagine when all of you are together with Isaac and Asher the stories you will share about the smiles you put on their faces while they waited with Jesus for you to come Home.

What a beautiful Heaven day, sweet Isaac! I love your flowers and your balloons and your brothers, too. :) Isn't your mommy wonderful? I bet your daddy is, too. We're looking UP tonight and thanking God for sending you here for a little while. Take good care of my girl and know your family is loved and that they love you to Heaven and back. Sweet dreams, little man!

Emily said...

Oh, and by the way, Hope and Mattie totally say that Miller Grace and her friends are having a party in Heaven with all the balloons we send and by the time we get home, the place will be filled! Be looking for the tiny beauty with the armload of balloons, including one huge BATMAN head. That's my girl. :)

I love the pictures of the boys with their Balloons. Luke truly does have a beautiful look of joy on his face. I recently listened to your beautiful story online when you spoke in your church last year and I had tears streaming down my face. Spending time mourning with you and these other moms for their lost babies has helped me in grieving my seven little ones in heaven that I never got to meet or hold. Praying for you and your sweet family may God continue to bless others lives through you and your boys story.
PS I think your birthday party for Issac sounds like wonderful idea. I read a great Blog of a sweet christian mother Sumi who lost her three year old daughter in a drowning accident in January. Anyway her daughter's Birthday is approaching and her posts from July 16th an July 22nd talk about planning a party for her daughter. Her blog is

Happy Heaven Day Issac!!!

As I said in my email on the 20th, I had been specifically praying for you this week knowing all that it meant. Thank you for sharing these personal moments and beautiful pictures with us, it's a reminder that although our babies are gone we can still celebrate their precious life with our earthly children.

I hope you are having a good night!

Love and miss you,

Thinking of you always...
