For Leah:

"There will be a day with no more pain, no more tears, no more fears. There will be a day when the burdens of this place will be no more and we'll see Jesus face to face."
- Jeremy Camp
I love you, Leah.  May you run into the arms of Jesus and be forever healed.  May your family find peace and comfort until they see you again.  May the Lord use your life and your death for His glory and as a light to those who seek the Truth.  And when you get to heaven, tell my Mimi & Pappaw and my unborn baby that I miss them, I love them and I look forward to seeing them again.

"Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.  I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.  And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.  He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."  He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything new!" Then he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true."  He said to me: "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life.  He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be my son."
-Revelation 21:1-7

Oh this brought tears to my eyes, especially thinking of Leah and your baby #2. Love you, and I'm praying for both you and your sweet friend who will be meeting her Lord soon.
