Reminder…

Just a quick reminder that tonight is Cider Carols.  I am so excited to see what God does.  It is going to be an amazing night of Christmas Carols, Warm cozy drinks and a chance to shop for a good cause.  I will just tell you that the Sundays came out in full force, and you will not believe the stuff they donated for auction.  Thank you to each and every one of you, and may God do amazing things with what we raise tonight.
It is a casual, warm, family-friendly night to welcome the coming of our sweet Savior Jesus.
I would love to share it with you…just click on the link above if you have any questions.
I hope to see you there:)
Blessings to you all.
Ang
p.s.  The 2nd was Abby and Ellie’s 6th Birthday.  We had an absolute blast! I was so caught up in it all that I haven’t had a chance to post, but would love to share some pictures with you all. It was a great day.  Thank you to all of you who wrote to wish them a Happy Birthday.
p.p.s. Sundays, could you pray for this Saturday evening? Greg, Nicol, and my parents and in-laws will be going to a candlelight vigil at the cemetery where Audrey and Luke are buried.  It will be emotional, I’m sure, and I am asking the Lord to bring a great peace in such a difficult season.  That His presence would somehow wash over us as we sit by these two tiny graves…we miss them so much.
Thank you, friends.  And remember, you are always welcome to send your prayer requests to me as well…we are all walking this together, and I am blessed to share in your lives as you have shared in mine.

    Hi Angie–

    Asking for your prayers for a dear friend. Our friend passed away yesterday too young at the age of 29. She had breast cancer 1 year ago however was in remission. It came back with a vengence and attacked her lungs. She was hospitalized Sunday and went to Heaven on Wednesday. She leaves behind a husband, a 3 year old little girl and a 4 month old baby boy. Please pray for the family’s strength and guidance.

    We are all devastated by the loss of her, however we are glad she is pain free and not sick anymore.

    Thank you Angie…you are a blessing to me. You have renewed my faith in Him.

    Hi Angie,
    I have been following your blog and you are a true inspiration.
    Just wondering if you could say a special prayer for my brother and my sisterinlaw. They are awaiting travel papers to go to China and pick up their daughter. Please pray they will be in China for Christmas. We need a Christmas miracle. May God Bless.
    And we will be praying for you all.

    Angie-
    I follow your blog and it has given me such inspiration. When we found out our baby girl, Mary Glenn, did not have much hope to survive til birth someone turned me on your blog page. I am SO glad they did!!! Mary Glenn was born three weeks ago and lived for 20 hours…it was such a blessing to see her and hold her and have our “special time”. I ask that you pray for myself and our families as we face the holiday season…a season that we thought would be much different, but God has something much bigger planned. Thanks again!

    What a great idea to have a vigil. I can only imagine how emotional that will be for all of you. I would love it if you could say a prayer for me. After loosing my twin daughters in July, I am facing the holidays with much emotion. It took 3 years to get pregnant with them and now I am hearing numerous pregnancy announcements from friends this week. It is all so difficult for me to handle and I find myself angry with God for putting me through so many struggles while blessing others with 2 or 3 children.

  • Laura

    You will all be in my thoughts as you pray over your little ones’ resting place.

    I wonder Angie if you would pray for our foundation – http://www.kyledavidmiller.org. We donate car seats nationally in the US (and into Canada) for low income families so that children can remain safe in harnessing car seats and delay the move to the less safe booster seat stage. Fundraising has been hard this year and of course, the waiting list never gets any shorter. We are running a fundraiser right now also. Details are available at http://bombedier.blogspot.com. I would forever be grateful for your help and prayers so that we can continue with our mission to keep children safe.

  • Jen

    Happy belated birthday to Abbie and Ellie! Our Kaitlyn turns 11 today! Time really goes so quickly.

    We continue to pray for you all. (hug)

  • Jennjilla

    Hi Angie,
    I read your blog frequently… and even though I’m single with no kids, your words have greatly impacted my life. Thank you so much for that! You are such an inspiration to so many and God is doing amazing things through you.
    I went to school in Nashville for a semester and am wishing I was back there now so I could attend Cider Carols… it sounds like it will be a great night! I’ll be praying for you tonight and this weekend as well. lots of love!

  • clkight

    i’ll be praying for you! pray for me if you get a chance…i didn’t realize how hard the holidays were going to be. i guess i never got to mourn the loss of my first baby and since the loss of our third child in august, grief has seemed to come twice as hard! and with an adorable 5 yr old that needs her mama, it makes me feel guilty for mourning…you know what i mean! hope nobody thinks i’m neglecting my daughter by me saying that!!! thanks so much for you ear…

  • gitz

    Hey, girlie… you are going to be GREAT tonight and I can’t wait to hear all about it (take your hands off your eyelashes). I wish you could feel how much faith I have in you.

    I will be praying for you that Saturday will be beautiful and peaceful and all it is meant to be. I have to tell you, it’s been a hard day here… my parents had a farm auction that went really badly; I honestly don’t know what they’re going to do. As I have been sitting here crying and heartbroken for my proud dad who has been so humbled and aching to be home with them, the phrase that keeps going through my mind: “He’s the same God today that he was yesterday.” Just know how much your words and sentiments are engraved in my heart.

    Love you.

  • Jess :)

    Ang,

    I will for sure be praying for you tonight, as well as on Saturday!! May the Lord bless each one of you as you pray over baby Audrey and Luke! Just remember, they both know how much they are loved…not only by their family, but by all of your “Sundays!” :) Praise be to God for that!!

    Can’t wait for pictures of the girls!! I’ve been checking your blog like a crazy woman so I was excited to hear that they’ll be coming. I also can’t wait to hear how Cider Carols goes! You’ll be amazing!

    Love you tons,
    Jess :)

  • Elaine

    I hope and pray that tonight exceeds anything anyone had imagined it to.

    I will also pray for the peace that passes understanding for your family during the service.

  • Megan

    Thank you for your blog and your words of encouragement.

    Please pray for my family, especially my mom. My mom attempted to take her life yesterday multiple times. Someone found her and she’s now in a hospital over three hours from family and friends. She’s living with chronic pain and has lost all hope. She, and my family, are believers and we are praying that the Lord would really work in this situation.

    Thank you.

  • erikmelissa

    Angie~ Have fun tonight! I hope a ton of money is raised, I will be praying for the evening to go fantastic! Happy Belated Birthday to your miracle girls!!! I took a peak at the pictures of the girls on twitter…they looked like they had a great 6th birthday (I love the message Scout left them :) ). My Ben will be 5 on the 14th…the years go by so fast! I’ll be praying for you tonight! ~Melissa

  • sumi

    Ugh – computer glitch. I think it swallowed my comment up in cyber space.

    As I was saying…I wish I lived closer. The Cider Nigth sounds wonderful.

    I wish that we could do what your family will be doing on Saturday night. I know it will be super sad but there is a sense of release too when you just allow yourself to sit and be sad and remember for a season.

    I always find those times when I miss Jenna extra deeply and when the memories of her are so acute to be bittersweet. They are bitter because I just miss her, but they are sweet because I feel close to her during those times.

    Praying that the sweet presence of Jesus will cover you like a starry blanket on Saturday evening, and that you will feel both close to Audrey and the peace of God resting over you.

  • Kristin

    I’m sure you will be wonderful tonight. I had hoped to make it but my husband does Top Gun at our church on Thursday nights so I don’t want to ask him to skip out and stay with the baby.

    I just got an email that a friend of mine has a coworker who killed himself last night. He was going through a very ugly divorce and has 2 small children. Please pray for this family, Sundays.

  • Mrs B

    Angie,

    Please pray for my husband and I. My husband had an affair last year which resulted in a son. Not only having to deal with that pain, but now the little boys mother is accusing me of child abuse. This is devastating. We are being interviewed by the state on Saturday. I am scared to death. I know I did nothing wrong, but I am still afraid. I have three little children of my own and all I can think of is them. Please pray that God will grant me peace and that the interviewer will see through this mother’s lies.

    Thank you so much…

    Mrs. B

  • Kendra

    I’ve got to tell you Angie, ever since you named us “Sunday’s”, I feel like I have super powers and am part of some crime fighting team!!
    I LOVE it!!!

    I will of course be praying for your family this weekend. I take my job as a Sunday very seriously.
    =-)Blessings,

  • Kathy

    Hi Angie. I haven’t commented here in a long time, but I have been reading and thinking about you and your sweet family. Happy 6th birthday to your girls! My Sean turned 5 in October and it is hard to believe he is that old already!

    I will certainly pray for you all on Sunday when you attend the candle light vigil at the cemetary. That sounds really nice. Our local hostpital’s bearvement support group had an awesome “Walk to Remember” with a balloon release in October that Bob, Sean and I went to that was wonderful and healing.

    I visit Molly’s grave often and find it very comforting, even though I believe that she is at peace and healed now in Heaven. It hard for me to believe that it has been almost 8 months since your Audrey-girl and my Molly-girl were here in our arms. Anyway, please know that you, your family and espeically your angel Audrey are in my thoughts and prayers as you continue to learn to live with your youngest daughter. (((HUGS)))

  • Kathy

    P.S. I meant to say learn to live without your youngest daughter. Many people who have lost children (especially babies) have shared with me that though you never get over losing a child, the pain softens eventually and you learn to live without them here on earth.

  • joyboytinkertoy

    I would like a prayer request if you can pray for us to find the funding to move this christmas we have run into hard times and are being evicted after christmas. we applied for emergency assistance through united cerabal palsey in nashville. so if you can say a prayer for our family for shelter and health.. that would be great. we have a special needs baby and a son we could use some cheer this holiday.. thank you for all that you..

  • Nettie

    I am new-ish to the blogging world … and just happened on your blog – on a down day. Reading your words, listening to the music and seeing your loss, I can not help but cry and feel that this is where my Father needed me to be today. I can’t thank you enough for your openness.
    I will pray for you and your family and come back to this safe place again and again. Thank you,
    Nettie

    Will be praying on Saturday as we spend the afternoon/evening with Todd and Selah. I’m sure his heart, and ours, will be with all of you. May you feel God’s presence surround you as you sit with your angels during the vigil. As always, blessings to each of you!

    Merry Christmas Angie! I have never posted on your blog before, but I follow it very closely! I have a prayer request: I am considering going to work after being a stay-at-home mom for many years! I am a nurse and I am considering a part-time, as needed position. I am very torn wether it is the right time for me to begin working and I would like for you to pray with me that GOd show me very clearly his will and direction for my life now! Thanks so much and God Bless you and your family during this very difficult holiday season and throughout the year as well!

    Angie, we don’t know each other but you read my blog a while back about my twins, Aubrey and Ellie, who died in July. I just wanted to let you know that I think your blog is beautiful. I think it is so sweet that you have an Ellie too. And you have twin girls like me, mine are just in heaven. Thank you for meeting my girls and for your faith. I too desire to live a life poured out. My tears are definitely pouring out these days! Take care from one mom who has babies in heaven and on earth to another. God bless you. -Rachel

    I will be praying for all that you have going on… ministry… the grieving process… all of it.

    I have a prayer request too. My husband and I have started fertility treatment again (drugs to help me ovulate) and it is not going very well. I’m not sure if you remember, but we lost our first son in June… I am the one who sort of knows your friend Sara S. (Eliot’s mommy). Anyway, you encourage me to live more closely to my Savior and I appreciate that so much!

  • Leigh

    I will be praying for your family. Please pray for mine. Our daughter, Emily, was stillborn on December 18th, 2007. We are just trying to navigate through this holiday season and her birthday. Thank you for all of you posts. They are so encouraging.

    I will be at the Selah concert in Washington, Il on Sat. I will be holding your entire family up in prayer, as I’m sure it will be a very difficult night for your family as well as for you and Todd. My favorite verse is Zephaniah 3:17. I hope you all feel Him singing over you on Sat.
    May the Lord Bless you today!

  • Seabolt

    You guys will be in my prayers this weekend.

    You had said that you do not mind us sending you a prayer request. Well, here is mine. My husband and I just found out on Monday that we are expecting. After loosing our twin sons 4 1/2 years ago and having a chemical pregnancy 2 1/2 years ago we are a little nervous. Please pray that this will be a healthy pregnancy and that God will keep this baby safe. I had my second blood test today and hoping for a good result tomorrow. We appreciate your prayers.

    Oh Angie, just thinking about it brings tears to my eyes. I have not been to my little girls’ burial sites in such a long time. Only one has a head stone because my husbands brother bought it for her. We haven’t had the opportunity to buy the other one and I am afraid I have forgotten where she is buried. I hate going there. Tomorrow is our youngest babies 2nd year birthday/anniversary (the day she went to be with her FATHER!) She is the one without the headstone. I want to go out there but am afraid of feeling again like I have failed her in some way. Like I have failed all three of my babies.

    I know God’s peace will be with you all at the vigil. He is so faithful to show up. I need to take some of my own medicine huh? I know if I go to the cemetery that it would be peaceful and I would be drawn to her grave… I just have to take that first step.

    Blessings

  • txmomx6

    Hi Angie,
    You’ve been in my thoughts and prayers for many months now. Since you’re taking requests, could you please pray for me and my 6 children? My husband died suddenly last December 18th so this month is very, very difficult for us. I was do pretty well until Thanksgiving and now I’m really struggling. God has already done so much good through this tragedy that I feel blessed many days …. but this month, not so much. I am aching for my best friend.
    Thank you,
    Janine

    cider carols sounds perfect. Just what you needed! I know it will be a great time!

    I am praying for the weekend. I can’t imagine the pain and suffering.. I ask God to be ever present and comforting. That there will peace that only comes from Him. Jesus come quickly and sit near these graves…..

  • Jenn

    Angie,
    You are amazing. God is surely speaking through you in each post. You know I will be praying for you this Saturday. I’m sure your vigil will be beautiful. I will also be praying for all the mothers who have lost babies, this time of year is so difficult when you have planned to share it with a precious newborn.

    I just have to say again, you have brought so much peace to me. Your blog is a constant reminder of the Hope we have in Him. When I get angry and depressed over losing Olivia, I think of the grace that you have shown on your blog through the loss of Audrey and I am blown away. Thank you for sharing your story and providing hope on a weekly basis. So, so blessed to be a Sunday.

  • Candace Jean July 16

    Praying for your comfort and peace at the vigil. You will feel God’s arms around you, I’m sure.

  • Lee

    Hi Angie, glad to hear your family had such fun with the girls birthday. That was my eldest sons due date, but he waited until the 8th. I will keep you all in prayer for the vigil for Audrey and Luke. I also ask you to keep my friend & coworker Martha in prayer. She miscarried during her first trimester last year and is now having complications during the second trimester of her current pregnancy. God Bless

    hi angie –

    my only other comment was on “october 15th” and it was just moments ago….

    i’m new to your blog and i’ve read every post. (it’s taken me some time however!) :)

    i’ve wept with you as i’ve read.

    i’ve laughed.

    and i’ve been amazed at how many things we have in common with eachother…

    like loosing our babies before we wanted to…

    and wondering if we should buy sticks from a store. (i did!!)

    you’ve got another sunday.

    angie,
    I dont know if you know this, but since Danielle has made your blog “non-copyable” (is that even a word) :) we cannot right click on the codes or buttons, it pops up a warning-I am not that technical-do you know how I can get it still?

  • Nick

    Angie,
    This is my first post, but I have been following your story for months. I just want you to know how much you have touched my life and that I pray for your family often. How sweet it is to be in the family of God.

    Wishing you love and peace for this Holiday season

    Angie, We had the pleasure of hearing Todd and Selah perform in Waco, TX last night at Baylor University’s Christmas on 5th St! They performed to a packed room, and were such a blessing! I was so glad we were able to hear them. Thanks for “sharing” him! :)

  • Mrs. Walker

    I will be praying for you all, Angie. I remember well the first winter after our daughter died when we attended the candlelight service hosted by the funeral home for all the families who had lost someone over the year. It was heart-wrenching, yet healing too in some way. I do hope that Saturday night will be a time of drawing close to the Saviour, while remembering your little ones. May the Lord sustain and comfort you!

  • Ange~

    Angie, I am praying for you and your family as you walk through this tough season.

  • Trennia

    Happy Birthday Abby & Ellie!
    Praying for you & your family..as I know the hurt of losing a child too.I have posted a few times on your blog about how I too lost a little girl this past may. Her name is Emily and I know she is in heaven with Audrey, Luke and JESUS! I know with Christmas coming it seems to hurt so bad but remember when our time on earth is done we will see the LORD JESUS and our babies again! LORD bless each of you and give you comfort.
    In CHRIST JESUS, Trennia

    Angie, please allow me to pray for you right now.

    Heavenly Father,

    Life is so beautiful, and so difficult, full of suffering and joy. Thank you for Angie, for giving her the strength to share her heart with the world in order to bring Glory to Yourself and to bring comfort and hope into our lives.
    We are lost little sheep without you Lord. We desperately need You. Thank You Lord. Thank You for Your Son, thank You for holding us up…we know You love us, yet it is easy to doubt Your love and goodness when our children have gone on without us…it is hard to be left behind.
    But we know we are NOT without hope. Christ has left His Holy Spirit, who with groans that words cannot express prays for us.

    Lord, please wrap Your loving arms around Angie, Todd, Nicol and Greg. I pray that Saturday night is a time of remembering, honoring, and praising You Lord, while they grieve for their losses…sweet Audrey and Luke, who live fully with their Savior. Come quickly, Lord, come quickly.
    Strengthen us to do Your good work while clinging to Your promises.
    We ask these things in Jesus’ name.
    Amen.

    Psalm 119: 49-50

    Remember your word to your servant,
    in which you have made me hope.
    This is my comfort in my affliction,

    I can almost picture you standing over her sacred spot. Missing her. Wanting to smell and nuzzle and tough her again … even if only for another 2 hours … makes me think of that country music song, “then again, I know what it would do. Leave me wishing for one more day with you”. May He be gracious unto you and grant you peace. Much love from Alaska, Alicia

    Will say a prayer for you, and your loved ones…

    I started reading your blog this fall because a friend of mine who lost her baby in January found comfort in your words. I just kept reading.

    My husband and I found out yesterday that I have an anembryonic pregnancy (I’m at 12 weeks) which means my uterus is empty and the embryo was likely reabsorbed into my body weeks ago. We feel so deeply sad. All I want to do is cry, and that does not express my sadness.

    I feel I was led to your blog months ago for a reason. And I hope some day it will help comfort me too, like it has my friend. Or that something will comfort.

    I have followed your story since the Bunny! I just wanted to let you know that when you are feeling down, please remember that even though she is not here on this earth, Ms. Audrey Caroline Smith is not gone she lives in the hearts of the millions of people that she has touched by you telling her story, and your unwaivering faith in our Lord Jesus Christ! Of course I will pray for you this evening, I can’t imagine what it must be like for your family right now, buit when you feel low and your missing Audrey the most go back and read some of the comments on your blog, and see all of the “Sundays” that were lost, and would still be living without Christ in their lives if it were not for Audrey! I am one of them! Thanks so much for having the strength for sharing her story, and thanks for leading me back to God. With love, Jennie.

    May it bring you some peace that your little angels get to celebrate the birth of Jesus with all of the other angels, and with each other in Heaven.

    Hope everything went well tonight, I was thinking and praying for your family while at the Selah concert tonight. Hearing Todd speak of Audrey and Luke had me in tears. But then I definitely had “the peace”.

    Heard this song today and thought of you and your family. Just wanted to share and hope it’s a blessing.

    “Does Jesus care when I’ve said goodbye to the dearest on earth to me. When my sad heart aches ’til it nearly breaks. Is it aught to Him does He see?”

    “Oh, yes, He cares. I KNOW He cares. His heart is touched with my grief. When the days are weary the long nights dreary, I know my Saviour cares.”

    I sat here and cried hearing this today because it’s so true…yes we do question when we go through hurt and pain, but deep down we know that He truly does care. We may not understand the why of everything, but we can have peace in knowing that He’ll never forsake us. May the Lord bless you and your family.

    I recently started blogging and a friend showed me yours. I have cried and smiled through your posts and i truly believe that you and your family are one amazing group of individuals.

    You have shown me that you can make it through anything. I feel completely blessed as well to have my children especially since we had had a bad time to begin with.
    Thank you so much for allowing us to see the way you guys do as well as reminding us of how precious life is.

    On another note i keep hearing about this song and really would like to hear it. Is there anyway for this to Happen

    Angie & family,

    I love reading your blog and it has helped me as we experience the same "sisterhood of loss". We lost our precious son Sterling Michael on 4-21-08. He was still born into the arms of Jesus.
    My blog is ourteamdavis.blogspot.com.
    I see that you are coming to Colorado Springs in January. How can I come to see you and your husband speak? I live in Colorado Springs and would love to meet you both and listen to you both share your story.
    I will keep you and your family in my prayers. Please keep us in our prayers as we endure the Christmas season with children in heaven and on earth.
