What TOL Service of Remembrance Meant to Me.....

Testimony of Bonnie Cheatham

"As a Threads of Love volunteer, I attended the Service of Remembrance in December 2010 as a helper.  Little did I realize that God had other plans in mind.


The speaker for the evening was a Chaplain in the Neo-natal ICU's for 14 years.  She shared her personal story of loss as well as so much information to help couples, individuals, etc in their healing process.  One thing she shared was the importance of claiming your baby and naming him/her.  And to know they were with Jesus and would greet us when we were called to heaven.  My tears began to flow.  I had miscarried 43 years ago while my husband and I were stationed in Naples, Italy.  We were alone with no emotional support from family and no one to talk to.  We just moved on with our lives and never spoke about it again.


Then the Chaplain passed out paper angels and asked each person to write a note to their baby and place it in the manger at the front of the room.  Once I began to write, I found I had so much to say...I wrote on the front and the back.  At the end of the evening, I brought my angel home.


When I got home, I could not even talk about what I had experienced because I knew I couldn't get through it without crying.  So, I told my husband a most incredible thing had happened and gave my husband the angel.  After reading, he could only say "Wow".  He couldn't talk either.  As I drove to Threads of Love the next morning, I continued to relive every part of the Service of Remembrance and wondered how I was to name my baby when I didn't know if it was a boy or girl.  Suddenly, the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said, "you had a girl and her name is Autumn."


I called my husband immediately and asked him to meet me so I could share the rest of our story.  When he arrived, i shared with him what the Holy Spirit had revealed -we had a daughter.  We cried together - tears of joy.  And both of us felt like a big hole in our hearts had been healed.  A hole we did not even realize was there.


Thank you TOLSA for providing this wonderful Service -

an instrument of healing.
