Life can be REALLY hard!

Sometimes life stinks. Sometimes the "WHY's" ring loud in our hearts. Sometimes we can do nothing but shout "God this makes no sense"! Trusting God and leaning on him are all we have left.

This week some of our dear friends walked through (are still walking) through a journey that I can't even imagine going through. Our friends delivered a beautiful full term baby girl on Wednesday, February 2nd and then Jesus welcomed that little girl into his arms one week to the day later. Baby Alicia had many, many health problems. Our friends had known from the first ultrasound that there were many issues, but it does not make releasing their daughter any easier.

Please pray for Karmon, Justice and their three older children (ages 8, 6 and 2). The services are on Monday, Valentines day of all days. Please pray for comfort and peace for them.

This will definitely be a first for me.... going to a funeral with a tiny casket. I really can't wrap my heart around the deepness of the grief....

Oh, that will be such a tough reminder every year on the calendar for them. So sad. But at the same time, I hope they will see it as a reminder of gifting their precious daughter back to her Maker.

I am praying for YOU as you minister to your friends. May you speak comfort to them and hold them up while they struggle to regain their foothold on faith in the Almighty God. May you demonstrate God's goodness and gentleness during this intensely painful time in their lives.

So so sad...but how precious that they know their little one is with the LORD! Might HE give the comfort and grace needed day by day to your friends and their extended family. Thank you for sharing.

Many blessings,
Camille
