On January 1, 2009, my wife and I found out that we were going to have a baby after trying to get pregnant for a long time. We were so excited to let all of our friends and family know. And then the day before we were going to fly out to tell our families in person, we found out that we were having a miscarriage.
The sorrow that we feel in this world reminds us that we are between two worlds. This world has tastes of beauty, love, and grace. But it is still a world marred by sin.
As Christians, we hope for a better world. That world is where we will experience beauty, love, and grace to the fullest.
It is with that hope that we hold on to our Savior. It is with that hope that we listen to His words, “Do not be afraid.”
About three weeks after we found out that our baby was going to heaven, I wrote this song as the longing of my heart for something beautiful–a world of no more tears and no more suffering.
Oh, and btw, our new baby is due March 8, 2009!
