A New Milestone

Posted by Erin Wilson On Wednesday, September 29, 2010 2 comments
Today officially marks the day that we have lost Josiah longer than we had him. He was with us for 8 months and 4 days and we have now been without him for 8 months and 5 days. I probably wouldn't have blogged about it but our crossbridge family wrote this post about our family and it touched me greatly that they remembered this milestone.

Please pray with us tonight that God will pour out peaceful blessings on the Wilson family tonight. After losing a child surely many days are a tender milestone.
Milo said it best 'the 24th was a tough day, but today the 28th is also hard, because Josiah was alive for 8 months and 4 days. From now on, we will always ha
ve lost him for longer than we had him.'
Those words have burned in my ears and trickled into my heart all day. We love the Wilsons and constantly think of them and remember them in prayer. Still, God moves. We call on the Lord for the pending offer on their home to close with blessing, abundance, and peace. We petition Him to bless their new life and ministry in Buffalo. In Buffalo, God has a purpose for the Wilson's hearts and souls that will continue to leave an indelible mark on countless other lives. Father, please bless them according to the measure that they have blessed us and that you have enabled us to bless them. Thank you Lord for calling us to serve them in your name. Bless them indeed, Lord, lavishly. Amen.

Thank you for praying for us.

    Stephanie Quintero If you are reading this post, you too love the Wilsons. Ask them about Josiah, it lets them know that his life is not forgotten. When the world stops asking, it is painful. It closes the door on their ability to talk about Josiah's precious life. You may feel uncomfortable for you, but is not for them. It is a release valve. Please ask.

    Erin and Milo,
    CrossBridge is working to get camcorders available to our families and anyone else who wants to borrow them at the PCICU. The first and only time that you heard your Son's voice should not have been the last. For this, we are deeply sorry.
    We love you soooo much.

    Anonymous Erin & Milo,

    We continue to remember Josiah - as a matter of fact we will never forget him. We also pray for your family as you grieve.

    Know that you are loved by the Bentley's - no matter where the Lord takes your family - the Lord has used you & Josiah in our lives - at MUSC - on our heart journey.

    May the Lord bless you and give you what you need each day.

    Love in Christ,
    Tina Bentley
