Gabriel was due today. Since he (or she) would have been born at least a week ago anyway, today doesn't hold as much weight as you might think. It's more of an academic curiosity than anything. Very few babies are born on their due dates anyway. God knows how our days are numbered and some of us have fewer days than others, that's all. Just because my little ones were lost so early doesn't mean they have any less "weight" than the living children. The arrangement in the photo above wasn't planned by me, but arranged by the children, quite unconsciously: there are six earthly children and four heavenly children depicted. Christmas Eve, after the children had gone to bed, I lit the candles and reflected on the scene for a minute. God is good.
