I pray you'll forgive my bittersweet post. Why bittersweet?
Wednesday started out well...prayer, Bible time, a little more reading in The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom, coffee x 2.
got a call that some friends from church were in the midst of one life's greatest and most unexplained tragedies. Sweet baby girl G flew home to Jesus after only 1 and a half days out of her momma's belly. Please pray for this dear family...I'm friends with sweet baby G's grandma and grandpa...in fact, David and I are in their Sunday night group. This is a pain we know all too well. I'm going through each torturous step with them in my mind. Praying constantly. I will keep their names private at this time.
Shortly after receiving the news about baby G, I got the official mass text from Nat, who shared that she and Nick were en route to the hospital, in hopes of meeting sweet Sophie soon. She arrived at 3:10 p.m., weighing 7 lbs, 3 oz and being absolutely precious. We are SO very happy for them and ask that they give her a few extra little snuggles, sniffs and tears of gratitude to the Lord for this gift.
My brain, which I was hoping would be a little less jumbly by this point, is NOT.
I'm all over the place and I covet your prayers.
i know each of these families do as well.
final thought: God sees the whole picture. This all makes sense to Him. I'm so glad.
That is all.
