Logan - 3 Years


and just like that, 3 years have come and gone since we last kissed this sweet boy and told him we loved him as he slipped away to the arms of Jesus. 3 more brothers have followed him there and i cling more tightly to this promise than i did 3 years ago:
“Look, I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go. I will bring you back to this land, for I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.””
‭‭Genesis‬ ‭28:15‬ ‭
do you know what the next verse says?
“When Jacob awoke from his sleep, he said, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it.””
‭‭Genesis‬ ‭28:16‬ ‭
i am constantly awed by the intricate way God weaves our lives and unfolds pieces at the perfect time. immeasurable pain and joy have filled my life since this day and i imagine it will continue this way until i see my babies again.
we are beyond thankful for all of you, who pray and encourage us year after year as we walk this road. every mention of one of our babies or recognition of their lives is a joy and blessing to us. we love you all 💗
happy birthday, logan 💙

If you had asked me at the end of my 15th year, what life would be like at the end of my 30th year, I would have given you an answer that would have paled in comparison to what reality has been. I have loved more, laughed more, cried more and hurt more than I ever could have thought was possible. It has taught me that I always underestimate how high the peaks God has in store for me are, and how low the valleys can get that he would guide me through. I have been given a great gift in loving family and friends. The most amazing wife in  Kristi Tisdale , and the greatest pleasure in my beautiful daughter Madison. This year also saw us gain, and in the same moment lose, our son Logan, and for that hour, I am eternally grateful. He reminds me every day that what we have here in front of us is momentary, and that our greatest joy is yet in the life to come. I pray that this next year God continues to open my eyes so that I could see how He is working for our greatest eternal good, e

baby 2

there is something about this reminder in my favorite place on earth that makes my heart so full, yet so painfully aware of the absence of my babies. six years ago, I stood in a church watching a sweet friend say I do and start her new life, while I was silently mourning the life I knew I was losing inside me. this baby is the only one I never got to see, yet I loved it fiercely and had already dreamed what our life would be like together. this never gets easier, we just get closer to meeting you every year that passes. happy birthday to you, baby tisdale two 💙💙💙💙💙💙

Jacob's Due Date

dear jacob, today is your due date and although no one expected you to make it this far, we did expect you to make it. i have learned a lot in the past few months about joy and grief; they are a mangled mess in our lives here on earth. often times, the most immense joy coincides with the most miserable grief. each time one of you leaves us too soon, i am thrown into the fire and burned until i have been refined and made new. your brother, logan, made me a warrior. you, sweet  jacob, have given me rest. my hope in this life is not in things, happiness, or my comfort. my hope is in the promise of eternity. i wish you hadn't beat me there but until then, i'll love you everyday from here. 💙 💙 💙 💙 💙 💙 “Therefore we do not give up. Even though our outer person is being destroyed, our inner person is being renewed day by day. For our momentary light affliction is producing for us an absolutely incomparable eternal weight of glory. So we do not focus on what is seen,
