Gone too Soon
Between feeding Ivy and chasing Sylas, my Sundays are hectic and I'm not able to interact with as many people I would like. Last Sunday I was only able to talk with a handful of people, and one of those was the daughter-in-law of long time members of our church. She doesn't usually attend the church, so I hadn't met her before. Oh, she was just glowing as she told me that she was pregnant with her first born; a son who was due in May. I loved seeing the beautiful expectancy on her face as she talked about him. Little did we know that her sweet son was going to arrive two days later, eleven weeks too early. He lived for two beautiful days and then went on to be with Jesus. My heart is broken for this family. I well know the pain of losing a child and have been in prayer day and night asking the Lord to meet them in their brokenness. Will you join me?
