Group Tonight
March 20, 2007

I’m on a little high tonight, as I’ve just come home from a great group!  We had fourteen tonight, four of whom were new to Tiny Purpose.  To hear the stories of new losses breaks my heart, and yet there is still a part of my that rejoices that Tiny Purpose is here for them!

Let me give you the details…we took care of some house cleaning issues to start:

1) The Gathering To Remeber will be held Saturday, April 21st, 2007 at the Christian Mission from 9am-1pm.  See www.TinyPurpose.com or call the Mission at (517) 263-7430.  The invitation is attached. 

2)There will still be group on Monday, April 16th!

3) The May group will be a special event night–mark your calenders for May 21st as Tiny Purpose hosts special speaker Yvonne Prowant who will share a presentation on the similarities in physical and emotional wounds and healing!  This will be a great time for inviting family and friends who maybe have never understood your grieving process?  Hint-hint!

4) For the June group, we will begin the devotional “Grieving the Child I Never Knew” by Kathe Wunnenberg.  Copies of the book can be picked up at a discount at Guided by Grace in downtown Adrian–just let the clerk know you’re with Tiny Purpose!

We were blessed as our new members shared their unique stories tonight and our thoughts and prayers are with them as they grieve…we enjoyed them all and hope that they will join us again, whether at group or at one of our events…Babies Mackenzie, Maverick, Jesse, Alana and Van Black were blessed to have such special mommies!

Though our devotional was short tonight, it came from “In a Heartbeat” by Dawn Siegrist Waltman…”Of Life and Love” was the title and the message tonight was that Love makes a mommy and that the loss of a baby does not change that!  I pray that you all find peace in knowing that your babies know they were and are well loved…

Group ended tonight with much visiting as we ate a delicious Texas Sheetcake compliments of Kristin (thanks my friend!) and as we stuffed and addressed Gathering invitations.

Thank you all for sharing yourselves tonight…I’m blessed to have such wonderful women in my life…and I find peace in knowing my little Hope has such wonderful playmates in Heaven!
