Love Has Come is comprised of blog posts, short stories, and personal experiences written during and after Abby’s life. We believe God doesn’t bless us simply to bless us. He gives a blessing to us so that the blessing can pass through us onto others. This book is another way we can pass on His blessings.
Although we may not know if the waters will be shallow, calm, peaceful or deep, rough, or treacherous, we pray this book helps others, in their grief, to pull up the anchor, push off from the dock, and set their vessel into forward position to share their blessings.
We know that the lessons learned in each individual journey will encourage others who are going through similar experiences. This book reminds others that there are hugs that need to be given away, words that need to be heard, encouragement that needs to be received, and love that needs to be shown. And, they have a story that needs to be shared. By the words of their testimony, others will be blessed and God will be glorified.
Foreword by Dr. Tom Blackaby, best-selling author, speaker, pastor
“Love Has Come: A journey of hope and encouragement for those experiencing grief and loss” by Melinda Gordon. It is remarkable how someone so tiny, so helpless, so dependent, who lives only 12 days can change so many lives. Melinda has eloquently and honestly given us a glimpse into what her journey has been like. It is a journey of grace and hope in the midst of unimaginable loss and pain; a journey that likely will not have an end, but does find hope along the pathway. This book is a hug for those who need a light in their grief darkness and a revelation to those who want to help. Melinda competently navigates the tightrope between tears and gratitude, loss and gain, suffering and joy. Her measured honestly is like medicine that stings but leads to healing. Melinda’s story of her daughter Abby’s short life and how it impacted so many people will impact you too. It may help you take another step in the direction of healing as you see how one family honors their child’s brief life. It may help you tell your own story of how love came to you too. It might even inspire you to action or to be ready when your “baby Simon” opportunity comes along.”
