One Month

It has been one month since Micah went to the arms of Jesus. We miss our cute little boy so very much. We miss his big, toothless smile. His cackling at Sadie. We miss how he would pull at his ear when we was tired. I miss how he would coo and kick his legs in delight at seeing me come home from work every day. We miss bath time and story time.

Thanks for all of your prayers, your emails and phone calls, for following the blog, and all your support. Please continue to pray for us, particularly next Wednesday. That day, we meet with the head of medicine at Children's Hospital in the morning, and Heather will be taking her CPR recertification class in the afternoon. Thanks.


  1. I'm sure there are a million moments that you miss with your little one and everything reminds you of him.
    May you both have supernatural wisdom when meeting with the MD. Heather, I will clear the time of your CPR class in my schedule and pray for you during the time you will be taking it.

  2. There is so much to miss. I wonder about Heather's days a lot. The routine of caring for Micah...gone. This breaks my heart daily.

  3. Cory, know that you've had many folks following your updates and keeping you in prayers, including me. Still thinking about you and praying that time heals all wounds, brother.

  4. We are members at the Downtown campus...and we pray for you very often! Our hearts are heavy for your loss. Please know that we think of you both daily.

    Chris and Angie Carey

  5. Heather and Cory I will keep you in my prayers and thank you for sharing your story. I am a friend of Tim Gilbert.

  6. Heather and Cory,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you as you go through this most difficult time. I pray for your strength, for God's comfort to see you through this.
    This song came on and I caught most of the words. It's a cry out to God to see you through this storm:
    Lord move in a way that I never seen before,
    The waves are crashing in and I am drifting away, Lord move in a way or move me.
    I looked everywhere to find a simple peace of mind.
    I can’t find anything on my own I have to leave myself behind.
    Strip away everything that gets in the way.
    Lord, I know the only way is through this.
    Lord I know I need you to help me do this.
    Lord move in a way that I never seen before,
    There is a mountain in the way and a lock on the door.
    I am drifting away like I never seen before.
    Lord move or move me.
    I am weak but Lord, but you are so strong and I know its been way to long.
    Lord move in away that I never seen before.
    Lamentations 3: 22

    Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
    For his compassion never fail.
    They are new every morning;
    Great is your faithfulness.

    I say to myself, The Lord is my portion;
    Therefore I will wait for him;
    The Lord is good to those, whose hope is in him,
    To the one who seeks him;
    It is good to wait quietly
    For the salvation of the Lord.

    He is my strong tower, shelter over me when I am weak. He is my shelter in the storm I will draw closer to Him. I know there will be days when life brings me pain. Lord you are much greater then the pain. Lord bring me what will give you glory. Holy, Holy Lord is the Lord God almighty.

    God hears your cries and counts your tears. God will lift up your head. Lean into Him into His strong hand,through the waves, clouds and storms He gently clears the way.

    "Sometimes God calms the storms at other times he calms His child"

    May he give you the peace which surpasses all understanding Rest assure you have put your trust in the right person Jesus Christ who was the first to rise to everlasting life.
