Life....and death

Life is fleeting....we seem so fragile!

I know that no one reads my blog yet, but my heart is heavy for several families right now and I must write about them.

The link at the bottom of my blog goes to Angie Smith's blog. Her husband is in the band Selah. Angie's blog is basically about her daughter, Audrey Caroline, who went to be with the Lord just two short hours after her birth into this world.

Sadly, this family has been hit with death again...Todd Smith (who is Angie's husband) has a sister named Nicol Sponberg (who used to be in Selah). Nicol and her husband Greg just had a beautiful baby boy this past March. Nicol went to check in on him the other night and he wasn't breathing....they think he may have died from SIDS but they are not sure. I cannot imagine....

Another family I am thinking of and praying for is the Steven Curtis Chapman family. Oh my goodness.....their youngest daughter was outside playing and their 17 year-old son accidently hit and killed her with an SUV. She had just turned 5.

My heart is heavy for these that are grieving their precious little ones. I know that, as Christians, we are not immune to these horrible trials....but it is impossible to understand why God allows it. It's mighty tough to trust God in these circumstances...only He knows the reasons.

If you happen to stumble upon this blog for some reason...please say a prayer for these families.

And if you have children....go kiss them and thank the Lord you have them today!!!!

Hi Bethany, I stumbled upon your blog from mckmama's blog. I know it's 5 months later than this post, but today is a good day to comment on this post. Today is National Day of Remembrance for pregnancy and infant loss. I'm sure these families are having a bittersweet time remembering their children today.
Keep your blog going. You never know who stumbles in to take a peek.
