Why Populating Paradise?

I live in paradise.  No really.  I live in PARADISE!  It is for sure the closest thing that this old earth has to offer as far as that is concerned.  Hawaii is a beautiful place indeed, full of nature to explore and beaches to enjoy.  It’s definitely a “sort” of paradise, but Hawaii is not the Paradise after which this website is named.  (Although I’ve done a pretty good job of populating this one as well!)  

My family in the pineapple fields of the North Shore on Oahu.  I live in this beautiful paradise with my five girls, while my other five babies inhabit the true Paradise...heaven!

No, the Paradise I'm speaking of is much more than beautiful beaches and nature hikes.  It is the place where God himself dwells and where Jesus sits at the right hand of the Father.  It’s where saints of old are enjoying their salvation right now.  It’s where our loved ones who have trusted in Christ’s work on the cross and have passed away are living right now. It’s where our babies, whom we have lost through miscarriage, are praising and glorifying God right now.  It’s a true Paradise.  It’s heaven.

Yes, I have done my part by God's grace in “populating” this Paradise.  God chose to create five lives within my womb that would never see the light of day here on earth.  Those five babies’ first thoughts-first tangible experiences-were to see and worship their Savior face to face.  They will never know the wickedness and evil of this world.  They did not lose their life altogether - they gained eternal life!

With this website, my main objective is to encourage you to go to God’s Word to find your hope, your sustenance and your very thoughts in order to reflect Christ through the trial of miscarriage.  I want to give you biblical truths that the Lord has taught me through His Word in order to equip you to minister to others who face this same tragedy.  I want to bring you testimonies of other mothers who have lost their little ones to miscarriage.  All so we can encourage one another and build each other up.  So we can bear one another’s burdens.  So we can weep with those who weep and rejoice with those who rejoice.  So we can see the truth from God about these babies who so silently slip away from this life.  So we can rejoice in the fact that we have all played a part in “populating paradise”!
