Not really sure how to make this post. Since I have started this thankful journal/blog posting I often go through my day thi
nking hum...what will I be thankful for at the end of this day, what will I post about. My phone rang about an hour ago and it was my husband. A friend of ours called him to give him the news that their 6 month old baby had died this morning. From what I can tell it sounds like SIDS since as far as all of us knew the baby was a beautiful healthy baby. I can not imagine their pain right now. The confusion for them as well as their other children. The what ifs, the how comes, the whys...I do know that in times like this we must still be thankful. As believers we know that we will be reunited at the feet of Jesus. This does not mean we do not suffer the loss and feel immense pain. I have followed along Mary Beth Chapman's blog through the incredible pain of her loosing Maria Sue last year. Mary Beth shares the deep pain yet her faith in our Savior is amazing. I ask you to pray for this family in the coming hours, days, weeks and months. I am thankful that in dark, sad, painful seasons in our lives ,as believers, we do not have to walk alone.
