Tonight as I surf around the net, I read some of my favorite blogs and there is one I have been following for awhile: Audrey Caroline. Every time I read Angie's blogs I weep...I should just have a rule to bring my Kleenex when I open her site!
I sit here with my own thoughts about what this amazing woman has walked through. Not only her, but her friend Sara. Both of these women have given birth to beautiful babies who were taken by God in the first hour or two of their life.
Angie surprised Sara at her son's memorial service this past weekend (Yes, Mother's Day weekend). Angie tells how she watched Sara's husband, Brandon, singing, "It is well with my soul" standing, arms raised to heaven, with tears rolling down his cheek.
Just pause and get this mental image in your head. This man is burying his son...his baby son. In the midst of the enormous pain and loss this man responds to God in praise: arms raised and singing: "It is well Lord, it is well with my soul, what You've done causes me to say 'It is well with my soul'."
My heart just ponders that response to our God! What a blessing to "watch" a fellow brother in the Lord trust God so deeply, so passionately, and so completely. Do you think if you lost something so precious you'd respond to God with such trust? How I pray this faith for each of us!
God bless you Sara and Angie!
