Carry Me - A Miscarriage Song


Having lost seven precious little ones at 6, 8, 9 and 16 weeks, I know well the pain of miscarriage; of holding a little one in your hand that is clearly a baby! How sweet this song is!

This song was written by Todd (the male lead singer) after the death of his newborn daughter who only lived a short time after birth. Such a beautiful testament of how God choses each child we conceive and gives them as a gift to us, no matter for how long or short a time we get with them.

This is beautiful! I, too, know the pain of losing two precious little ones; one at 15 1/2 weeks and one at 7 weeks. Time does heal the wounds, but the memories are always there. I praise God for the short time He allowed us to share in those particular blessings and the time He gives us each day with the precious 5 we are privileged to raise!

When I found out I was pregnant, I was delighted and scared to say the least. It happened so quickly! At 8 weeks I lost what happened to be the first of a twin. We had no idea till we went to the emergency room to find out it was for sure a miscarriage and much to our surprise I was still with child and a tiny beating heart inside me still. As I was on bed rest for many weeks, the long, hard and painful (physical, emotional but mostly spiritual) days came to halt when the same feeling that came just seconds before my first miscarriage was all too familiar. At 12 weeks of gestation a trip to the doctor confirmed no heart beat of the second of twins via the ultrasound. I had a D&C&E that very next day.
I could not help but wonder how people that do not have the love of Christ in their hearts go through any trials in life. I only wondered that, as time showed me it got much harder as I seeked for peace, but had obstacles in my way that I could not let go. Then as I was cleaning my house one Saturday afternoon about 4 weeks post miscarriage, I came across a CD that I had forgotten that I had. I thought 'oh I love Selah I will just put that in'. Not remembering the song at the end, it brought me to my knees as I cried out for the Lord to give me the strength and courage to bring some things out in the open. After that song and MUCH praying, I climbed in my Jeep and went to the farm where my husband was. I was shaking with fear, not knowing what would take place when I got there. My husband knew something had snapped in me and dropped everything to listen. I cried and he held me with such forgiving arms-I will NEVER forget! It was that day that I knew God's love shown through my husband in an describable way. If it weren't for the Lord's work through that song, I could not tell you where I would be today. I listened to that song so many times, each day for a VERY long time. I still tear up over it but with such peace in my heart :)
2 months later we were blessed with child again, who today is the most sweetest blessing for God and he is 14 months old. The beginning of that pregnancy was a bit rocky but this time I had peace and I know God would carry through.

Looking forward to meeting those babies soon <3
