“Happy Birthday, Sweetheart!”: a heartfelt voice of a parent who lost a loved one and is yearning to know how it’s like for their child to celebrate in heaven. “Happy Birthday, Sweetheart!” is the creation of published author Jennifer K. Piatt, a pastor in the United Methodist Church. She and her husband enjoy their three grandchildren. They pray that all of their family will know the saving grace of Jesus Christ and will be with him eternally someday.

Piatt shares, “When one whom you love dies, the day of their birth and the day of their death will never be the same. Happy Birthday, Sweetheart! asks the questions that we all want to ask, but seldom voice aloud. How do I celebrate his birthday? What is she doing today? Is this day special in heaven? Who is he with? Is she aware of others in heaven? Does he know what I am thinking and doing to celebrate him today? There are many things we cannot know about heaven until we are there, and it can be comforting to use our imaginations until we know for sure.

“Questions are healthy, and we need to look for answers. When answers are not to be found, we can dream and consider possibilities while leaving the final details up to God. God has given us vivid imaginations to help us through those times of unanswered questions, and Happy Birthday, Sweetheart! helps us to use this wonderful gift.

“This book is for anyone whose loved one is in heaven, but especially for those who have lost a child. No matter how long they have been there, no matter the circumstances of their arrival, no matter your age or relationship, the pain and loss are real. Every year, there are two days which leave you in a feeling of nostalgia and a shadow of melancholy. The birthday of the one you love and the day they died are forever changed once your child is no longer living here on earth.

“I pray that you have a relationship with Jesus and will be reunited with your child someday. Until then, I pray that you will celebrate the day they were born into this life and also celebrate the day they were born into heaven.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Jennifer K. Piatt’s new book is a beautiful tale for those who have lost a loved one. Bringing comforting words that picture out how birthdays in his Kingdom are, everyone who reads this book will find joy amidst the loss.
