My Hope is in the Lord, and my Hope is with the Lord.
The night we found out our second treasure was with her Maker, I dreamed it was a girl.
I woke up last night and couldn't go back to sleep. Through my tears I asked Jesus to hold her close enough that she would be able to hear His heart the same way she heard mine.
It was as if He whispered, "Have Hope Lis, I have Hope".
Today our hope remains in the Lord that knew all of this long before we did.
Hope Caroline Graeser, you are a loved, precious and perfect treasure. The only thing softens the blow of losing you is knowing that you are in the arms of the Father and will never have to live in this evil, sinful and dark world. You were created for Heaven. Your heart will never be broken, sad or in pain. You will only know joy and rejoicing with the Risen King all the days of your life.
We are rejoicing with you today and can't wait to be with you again! Until then, we will do our best to embrace and walk through these days knowing the Lord will be faithful to carry us through. We are smiling as we think about you and all that eternity holds.
