Memory Eternal.

It's been a long week. And it hasn't ended well.

Please pray for us.

I haven't told you this news because we wanted to wait, but, for nearly two months, my wife and I have been expecting our sixth child. (Our seventh, including Baby Torey - May her memory be eternal!) We discovered yesterday, however, that we had lost the baby.

It wasn't long ago that we were left wondering at this tiny heart, full of hope, beating furiously. Now there is only hard, impenetrable silence. And life moves forward, laboring soberly.

So pray for us.

Most Holy Theotokos, pray for us.

Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal, have mercy on us.

We're sorry so for the loss of your dear little one.

Scott, I will pray. I'm so sorry.

Scott,

Can I suggest that you go to iTunes and buy Agnus Dei by Samuel Barber? Either John Rutter and the Cambridge Singers, Taverner Choir, or the Robert Shaw Festival Singers. I think this could feed your soul right now.

Scott Lyons said...

Thank you all for your prayers.

Dan, thank you for the suggestion of Agnus Dei. It's a moving piece.

Dearest Friends - we are still praying for you all! I am sure Thanksgiving was filled with a mixture of emotion for both of you! we are lifting your to our Almighty Holy God! and, I am sorry that the headliner to my comment is "Hillbilly Rockin Robin" - It doesn't fit the emotion I feel typing this comment to you. We are hurting with you! Love you all!
