Six Word Saturday

''For this child I have prayed''

Photo of a cross that I bought my friend as a gift.
The past few days have been really hard. I don't question God I just try and understand. I can't seem to find an answer at the time being. I'm sure in due time God will reveal the answer to her family  and me.
My friends baby girl was born on September 13, and passed away November 9th. She was progressing so well. She was expected to come home at the end of this month. They didn't have the chance to have a baby shower because she came three months too early. So two baby showers were being planned for her. My friends mother told me the other day ''you were planning a  baby shower and we were planning a baby shower, now our family is planning a funeral.'' My heart aches for this family, my sweet friends.
Tomorrow will be her viewing, followed by a graveside service. I fear tomorrow. I don't know how I will react to it all, since I have been a train wreck since they knocked at the door to tell me the news. I will pray for my friends and their sweet family tonight. I will pray for God to give me the strength to hold it together so that I can support them in the best way possible.

Rest in Peace beautiful girl, you will forever be in the hearts of many.

Psalm 23

 1The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
 2He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
 3He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
 4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
 5Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
 6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

  1. I am so sorry for your friend's/family loss. I can't imagine their grief and sadness, but I know God is walking alongside of them, holding them close, during these days ahead!


  2. There are, of course, no words that one might type into a textbox marked "Post A Comment" on someone else's blog that are appropriate, that do not seem glib and under-caring. I will not attempt to imagine them.
