Dear Heavenly Father,

As we remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms we enjoy every day, we think of how they have followed in the footsteps of your son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. Please hold our servicemen and women in your strong arms. Cover them with your sheltering grace and your presence as they stand in the gap for our protection.

We also remember the families of our troops. We ask for your unique blessings to fill their homes, and we pray your peace, provision, and strength will fill their lives.

May the members of our armed forces be supplied with courage to face each day and may they trust in the Lord's mighty power to accomplish each task. Let our military brothers and sisters feel our love and support.

In the name of Jesus. Amen.

Hard at Work

We at Enraptured Embrace have been hard at work on some special quilts made in memory of some very special people. 
Our first request came from a woman grieving the loss of her daughter. She was well into her second trimester in her pregnancy when she found out her daughter had passed. She gave us what clothes she had gathered during her pregnancy and we made her a beautiful memento. Something we hope she cherishes for a lifetime. Something we hope will help ease the pain that comes with the loss. Something small but filled with love.

 We left on buttons, snaps and little duckie flaps. We also added in the bodice of two adorable dresses. The back is made from the stretchier fabrics and the front is made of all woven fabrics. Our good friend and Enraptured Embrace Volunteer, Mandy, hand binded the entire quilt. Beautiful end result!

We send love to the sweet Momma of little Nataleigha.  Thank you for trusting us with your daughters belongings, and we will keep you and your family in our hearts!
With Love,
Katie, Karie, Krystal, Korin, Tracy and Mandy

This week we remember all babies born sleeping, or whom we've carried but never met, or those we've held but couldn't take home, or the ones that came home but didn't stay. Make this your profile status if u or someone u know has suffered the loss of a baby. The majority won't do it, because unlike cancer, baby loss is still a taboo subject. Break the silence. In memory of all angels too perfect for earth.
In Memory of Stella Grace,  Nataleigha,  Christian Paul, Emily, baby J.B. ,  Joseph, Joshua and many other Angel Babies out there looking over their families with love. xoxo

Remember Me

Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can go no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you planned:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.

I Shall Be Glad Poet: Grace Noll Crowell

 If I can put new hope within the heart
Of one who has lost hope,
If I can help a brother up
Some difficult
long slope
That seems too steep for tired feet to go,
If I can help him climb
Into the light upon the hill's far crest,
I shall begrudge no time
Or strength that I spend,
For well I know
How great may be his need.
If I can help through any
Darkened hour, I shall be glad indeed.

For I recall how often I have been
Distressed, distraught, dismayed,
And hands have reached to help,
And voices called
That kept me unafraid.
If I can share this help that
I have had, God knows I shall be glad.

 Making memories with your children is one of the greatest gifts you can give them. I hope to leave my children with an abundant supply of them. We had quite the blizzard in WI last night, leaving us with plenty of snow to make some of these memories with our children ♥

A Special Thanks!

Enraptured Embrace runs solely off of donations, and have been blessed by some generous, loving people!  We would like to sincerely say THANK YOU to Nancy T. and Amber M.   It is donations from caring people like you that keep us going in our mission!  THANK YOU!

Stairway to Heaven

"And a new day will dawn
For those who stand long
And the forests will
Echo with laughter "

There is much to be told about those few words I quoted. Those few words explain that eventhough your heart aches right now, a new day always comes. With each new day, you will heal, and life won't be as hard as it was the day before. Only time heals a broken heart.

When We Share ~Poet Unknown

                When we share laughter, there's twice the fun;
           When we share success, we surpass what we've done.

                When we share problems, there's half the pain;
                   When we share tears, a rainbow follows rain.

               When we share dreams, they become more real;
               When we share secrets, it's our hearts we reveal.

                    If we share a smile, then our love shows;
                     If we share a hug, then our love grows.

              If we share with someone on whom we depend,
                    That person becomes family or friend.

                 And what draws us closer and makes us all care,
               Is not what we have, but the things that we share.

When The Rain Comes

When someone close to you is suffering the loss of a loved one, it can be difficult to know what to say or do for them.   I know from expirience, that there is really nothing you can say to make them "all better".  There is something you can do.  Be there.  Show them that you love them.  Hold them until the rain slows.. it will never go away, but it will get better.
The boundaries which divide life from death
are at best shadowy and vague.
Who shall say where one ends,
and the other begins?
Edgar Alan Poe
