Melody Joy & Madison Hope Delgado

...ask the beasts, and they will teach you;
the birds of the heavens, and they will tell you;
or the bushes of the earth, and they will teach you;
and the fish of the sea will declare to you.
Who among all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this?
In his hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of all mankind.

Job 12:7-10



For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother's womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from you,
when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your book were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there were none of them.
Psalms 139:13-16



Then Job arose and tore his robe and shaved his head and fell on the ground and worshiped.
And he said,
"Naked I came from my mother's womb,
and naked shall I return.
The LORD gave,
and the LORD has taken away;
blessed be the name of the LORD."
In all this Job did not sin or charge God with wrong.

Job 1:20-22

As he [Jesus] passed by, he saw a man blind from birth.
And his disciples asked him,
"Rabbi, who sinned,
this man or his parents,
that he was born blind?"
Jesus answered,
"It was not that this man sinned,
or his parents,
but
that the works of God might be displayed in him."
John 9:1-3

I am praying for your sweet family tonight. Your girls are absolutely beautiful. Congratulations on being chosen to be parents of such marvelous little miracles. What sweet blessings they will always be! My baby girl, Miller Grace, was probably waiting for them with a smile. I know they'll all sleep sweetly in the arms of Jesus tonight.

Wow. God's plans, though often incomprehensible, are always wonderful. The lives of these two girls have touched far more people than most of us ever dream of helping.

I love all of you and am lifting you up in prayer.

What beautiful baby girls they are. They have brought Joy and Hope to so many lives. God's will is sovereign and perfect, and though we may never know why their time on earth was so short, we also can't fathom the impact of all the lives that they have touched and beared witness to of the love of our Lord and Saviour.

In sorrow and in the joy of the Lord, we stand beside you...loving you, praying for you, lifting you up before the Lord...

Love,
Jay, Shannon, Jadyn, and Baby

Dear sweet friends...there really are no words to speak...we love you, and we love Melody and madison. These months with them have been a blessing for us all...they are beautiful, and perfect. Congratulations mommy and daddy.

Jason, you are a tremendous father and husband. One who carries a deep love and joy for his 3 Daughters. You are a daddy of 3!!! You are a precious husband to Vanessa, and a rock in your home. We are praying for God's strength and guidance for you.

Vanessa, there are no words to express the way I have felt these last months feeling the highs and lows with you as you shared your heart over the blog and text, and we have asked God so many days for Him to do the impossible. You are a treasure and a WONDERFUL mommy of 3 beautiful girls... we love that you have had joy even in the sorrow of fewer and fewer days with your M&M. We know the road from here will be hard, but Jesus will continue to be your refuge and strength sweet friend. I wish I could carry just a portion of your load...

We love you. Give Kenya a hug for us. Our hearts are broken for you, and yet we have hope. We can't wait to see you.

Thank you for your faithfulness.
God chose to give you two lovely daughters and the time you had with them.
He did all of this out of His holy will.
Though I do not know you, I wept when I read that the Lord took them home.

Stay strong in the only true faith.

My sincerest condolences to your family, and my most gracious thanks to God our Father for his gift of those precious babies, as well as his infinite mercy in receiving them home. I am in awe how two tiny people could bring so many people closer to Him. Your family is very special to Him and I pray he continues to shower you with blessings: Love of friends and family (as well as perfect strangers) in your time of sorrow, and strength in the coming days.
God bless you all.

Dear Delgado family, I praise our sovereign and loving Father for you and your sweet, strong faith which has challenged me and others as you've shared your joys and struggles. Ever since Rose sent out her prayer request, members of our body have been praying and keeping up with you through your blogs. We are heart broken and mourn with you for Melody & Madison...yet we find comfort and even joy that they are back in the loving embrace of our Lord and Savior. May he continue to be your rock and your fortress over the coming days so that you may be able to proclaim: "The joy of the Lord is my strength!"

They are truly beautiful and such a miracle from GOD! How blessed that you chose to share them with so many and through it all glorify our Lord and Savior! He knew what he was doing when he gave these beautiful girls to you!

I am praying for you as you now enter into grieving, even as you praise the Lord. I can attest as a bereaved Momma it's not easy. I pray that you're surrounded by people who are gentle with you, who pray for and with you, and who will let you talk about your girls and all they taught you with joy in their hearts for being blessed that you have chosen to share with them.

God Bless your beautiful family.

Jason, Vanessa, Destinee, Kenya,

I have been praying for you and will continue to do so. Your strong faith and reliance on the Lord Jesus Christ, despite this trial, has been such an encouragement to me and to so many. You have exibited the faith of Job, and I pray God will bless you as He did Job. "And the LORD blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning" (Job 42:12).

God bless you and thank you for sharing your story in such a transparent public way.

Melody and Madison are beautiful. Just imagine the wonderful homecoming when you see and hold them one day with perfect bodies in Heaven!

Dearest Delgado's, my prayers and good wishes are with you.
What beautiful baby girl's our Lord blessed you with! Although I do not know you, I have kept up with your blogs and I am truly humbled by the faith you have. I myself have had numerous miscarriages and although nothing in comparison to what you are enduring I can not remember ever feeling so at peace as you two wonderful couple seem to be. I didn't quite understand, why me? Today I know "why me", the Lord had a plan for me. My beautiful baby girl Mia came after conceiving and miscarrying a dozen times. I couldn't imagine not having her in my life. God has a plan, but I don't need to tell you that; I think YOU TWO have taught me that in a matter of weeks! May God continue to bless you each and every day and may He hold you in His arms through all.

How sweet the Name of Jesus sounds
In a believer’s ear!
It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds,
And drives away his fear.

It makes the wounded spirit whole,
And calms the troubled breast;
’Tis manna to the hungry soul,
And to the weary, rest.

Dear Name, the Rock on which I build,
My Shield and Hiding Place,
My never failing treasury, filled
With boundless stores of grace!

Jesus! my Shepherd, Brother,Friend,
My Prophet, Priest and King,
My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End,
Accept the praise I bring.

Hello....

I came over from 4 little men and twins. What a wonderful post, filled with hope that is beyond our eartly comprehension. Your daughters are so incredibly beautiful, and I am praising Him today that you were able to spend some time with them before they went Home. God is so good.

I can't imagine, even knowing all of this, how difficult this time must be. I, too, have lost a child, and it was the darkest time in my life. I (obviously in a slightly different way) feel your pain, and I am sorry that you are having to walk this road....but I know God is good, even when times here on earth are tough.

May the Lord bless your family--you will be in my prayers, and I will be back again to check on you all.

Susie said...

I came by way of 4 Little Men, I'm so sorry to hear that you lost your precious girls Melody and Madison. I lost my son Joshua earlier this year at 67 days of age.

May God grant you peace - it's the only comfort in something like this. There are no words that help - but I can say that I know how you feel with full honesty.

Much love to you and your family. What beautiful girls. I love your name choices. Melody Joy is my best friend's name. Her mother named her from this verse: Isaiah 51:3b "And her desert [Zion's] will be like the garden of the LORD; Joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and sound of a melody."

I also found my way here via 4 Little Men and just wanted to tell you how very sorry I am. They are beautiful baby girls and I'm so thankful you had someone there to take pictures of them so that the four of you could completely absorb those precious minutes together and drink in every inch of their beautiful bodies and perfect faces. How free, whole and happy they are now, dancing at the feet of Jesus. I'm praying for peace and comfort that only our mighty Savior can bring, as you go through these next days, weeks and months.

Gigi and Tommy said...

Jason and Vanessa,
Tommy and I want you to know we love you and we are so taken with the way Melody Joy and Madison Hope have brought so many people to their knees in prayer, which certainly magnified the LORD. So many lives are being touched by them - and your faith. As you've said, "Melody Joy & Madison Hope Delgado are now more alive than we are." To God be the glory.
2Corinthians 5:1-4
1For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven. 3If indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found naked. 4For we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, not because we want to be unclothed, but further clothed, that mortality may be swallowed up by life. (NKJV)

Your brother and sister in Christ Jesus - Tommy & Gigi

What beautiful little ones forever together with Jesus. My heart is aching for you all. Can we keep praising His name even in such grief?? My prayer is that you can and will. I love the birth announcment and all the perfectly chosen verses to go with it.

Mendi said...

"In the Valley" taken from an old Puritan Prayer

"When You lead me to the valley of vision
I can see You in the heights
and though my humbling wouldn't be my decision
It's here Your glory shines so bright
So let me learn that the cross preceeds the crown
To be low is to be high
That the valley's where you make me more like Christ

Let me find Your grace in the valley,
Let me find Your life in my death.
Let me find Your joy in my sorrow,
Your wealth in my need
That You're near with every breath,
In the valley.

In the daytime there are stars in the heavens,
but they only shine at night.
And the deeper that I go into darkness,
It's here Your glory shines so bright
So let me learn that my losses are my gain
to be broken is to heal
That the valley's where Your power is revealed."

That song together with Scriptures, is where I gleaned so much comfort through the losses of my babies in the womb. There is so much truth to that song, I just wanted to share it, I know you guys rest in God's sovereignty, but I also know it still hurts. Everyone quotes Romans 8:28 during times like these, but in this we rejoice for the reason of verse 28, the reason is in verses 29-30, to be comformed to His Image. Glory.

May it all be for His glory,
Mendi, Jim and Dylan
(you don't know us, but we've known about you through the Kirks)

p.s. If you want to obtain that song you can get it through www.sovereigngracemusic.com and the original prayer is contained in Arthur Bennet's Valley of Vision book.

"After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you."
1 Peter 5:10

My deepest condolences for the loss of your daughters.

May the peace of the Lord be with you always.

Melody Joy and Madison Hope are beautiful! These tiny, sweet little girls have touched the lives of so many.

I am thankful that you were blessed with an hour of their lives to hold them, express your love for them, and share them with your family.

You have done so much for our family, and we are so blessed to know you.

Our hearts are with you, your sweet baby girls, and your family.

Love,
Shar, Greg, Josh, Brodie, and Seth
