TRIALS OF FAITH
I have just been informed that a friend from work and his girlfriend have suffered a tragic loss. Last night during labor their daughter's hear beat was lost and their baby girl was stillborn. This was their first child and a source of great anticipated pride and joy. I cannot begin to know the pain and anguish they are going through. All I can do is offer my support and prayers to help them cope with the loss of this precious child. For those of you who read this Blog if I can ask you to say a prayer for Kyle and Taylor and for their little angel Dakota Leigh, I would forever be grateful to you. As for me all I can say is: All children are born perfect in the eyes of our Father so you have nothing to fear. May the knowledge that Dakota is now laughing and smiling waiting for you up in heaven bring some level of comfort. Tonight I will say a special prayer blessing for you and Taylor, asking God to shine his grace on you to give you strength to get through these trials. I have spent enough time with you Kyle to know that you are a Honest, loving man and Taylor the occasions I have seen you show me you have a kind, gentle spirit. I have no doubt that all three of you will be together again in heaven someday. I know the clouds of sorrow are resting heavy on your hearts today, but do not loose sight of the light of Faith. It will guide you through the darkest storm. The power of prayer and the loving mercy in God's answers will bring you through this pain and in time will fill your hearts with joy again. If there is anything you need don't hesitate to call on me, and I leave these humble words with you in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
