For Janice, mother of three

You are battered and you bleed, but you are not destroyed and you are not forsaken. God in heaven, Creator of all life, knows your sorrow. He knows every tear you have shed and He will not let your suffering be wasted. He knows each hair on your head and nothing, in all the earth, is hidden from His eyes. He knew your little boy when you held him in your arms, treasuring his balding head, his imperfect tiny heart. And He knows your son now, safe in those mighty arms, presented to His glorious presence without fault and with great joy.
