Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:35-38

Three Years

Tomorrow, July 24th, marks three years since Savannah Grace passed away. I think about that sweet girl everyday! Tomorrow, I plan on taking time to talk about Savvy G to Ford and Penelope. If you have any memories of her that you would like to share, please do.

We are still so thankful to everyone who has walked this road of grief with us. We are also thankful for the peace that God has given us through this trial. Even friends that we have now that didn't get the opportunity to meet Savvy have made an effort to get to know her by looking at pictures and asking for stories, etc. We are so blessed.

The day before she passed away, we spent the day as a family (Eric, Savvy, and me.) We had no idea it would be our last day with her. We were recalling the time when I was 12 weeks pregnant with her and we thought I was misccarying. Thankfully I wasn't and everything was ok. I remember saying, "We almost missed out on knowing Savannah." Thankfully God, in his sovereignty, chose to give us more than 12 weeks with her and I'm so thankful. Even through all the pain we have gone through, it's worth it to have been able to spend 15 months with her (plus the 9 months of pregnancy.)
