God's Wonderful Grace

As the sun set on little Boaz' life, we are very sad and missing him. But, rejoicing that he is in the arms of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Nick and I were thanking God for all the good times we had with our Little Man, and for God allowing us to keep him for these two years and seven months. I needed to stroke his soft hair one more time, though this time it wasn't to comfort him, but me.

We ended up having Sunday School in the house. We were all mourning our loss, because it was surely gain for Silas!

We are very thankful for everyone who came to support us. Somehow, this morning I was wondering if my Silas has talked to Boaz and Ruth, or Paul and Silas yet!


  1. Hi Karen,
    I am praying for you all. I know by experience this is great pain and sorrow but ouor great God will be near and give each moment grace, comfort and hope. Our mommy hearts miss them terrriblly. Even after 2 1/2/ years, I cry everyday and long for Joel yet the Lrod ahs give me in these 2 1/2 years beautiful scriptures to penetrate the hurt and sustain my patience till we are together again. It looks like you have a wonderful group of church family to support, yet know I am here if you need a mom thtat knows about 2 and 3 year old boys that we are missing. Your other children look so nice in their ties and hats. Keep in teh Word, it is our Hope!!!

  3. We are so sad for all of you and the pain that you are feeling. Please know that our prayers and love are with you at this difficult time. God bless.

  4. Our 12 year old son has prayed regularly for Silas since the diagnosis. You continue to be in our prayers now and for a long time to come. As a mom, you have not been far from my thoughts all of this week. My heart grieves for you and your family.

  5. I have no words, now seeing the photos. I just feel a lot of feelings. I love you all. That's all I can say right now. I still Praise our Lord, there are just a whole lot of feelings I'm feeling right now.

  6. Mrs. Karen and Bro. Nick, please know that Trav and I have been and are still praying for you and the kids and everyone out at the home. Every time that I think of you guys and Silas, a picture flashes through my mind of Silas in the Lord's arms, laughing and playing...I can't even pretend to come close to understanding how you are all feeling right now, but I can say that I understand the mix of sadness and joy knowing that one of your babies is in heaven waiting for you. I pray that peace and comfort surrounds you now and until you meet again.
