Small Child...A Big Loss

As many of you already know, we lost a child this last week. He/she was definitely loved by everyone we knew. I am glad God gave us this child and I know He will use this experience for His perfect will. God is so good and gracious towards us. We deserve nothing and He gives us everything. Even in times of trial, God proves good. Yes...even better.

It is a hard trial but we can put our hope in God. I thank Him for allowing me to know Him. I have already learned so much from this experience and have made stronger relationships. God is in control. And He has planned this day from even before time began. Hearing the news at the tournament was good for me and my other siblings because we had so many strong Christian friends there. God is always good and continually proves His faithfulness to us.

I want to thank all those who have prayed and have been so kind to our family. There are too many names to say but thank you. Word is spreading fast and God will use this child in a huge way. We might not have wanted it this way. We probably would have chosen that the baby be born fine and healthy. We may have wanted it alive. We may have wanted to hold, feed, and play with this small gift from God. But He knows what is best and He will do what is best.

Thank You God. Thank You for Your love. Let the little children run to You.

As I read your words I see that you have grown into an amazing man. Your writing consoled me...hug you mom for me and tell her and your dad that I love them very much - you are in my prayers.

David...thanks for sharing from your heart. I am so sorry for the loss of such a little one that would have been so loved here on earth but is now spending a joyous relation with the Lord. Earthly trials are burdensome but God's grace and understanding wraps us tightly in his love and helps us through. We can't comprehend the why, but do know He is there to comfort. Love you so much and my prayers are continuing for all of you.
