I came to the library today to work on Creepy Faces. Of course, being the procrastinator I am, I had to check my email and Facebook and All The Things before I would be able to focus. When I opened my internet browser, my Gmail loaded automatically–as it always does–but when I saw the unread message at the top of the page, my heart nearly stopped.
You may remember the friend I wrote about only a couple weeks ago in this post. Yesterday morning, her precious baby girl went to be with her Father in heaven. She passed away in her parents’ arms as they sang “Jesus Loves Me” to her.
What a beautiful way to enter eternity.
If you pray, please pray for strength for my friend, her husband, and their three year old daughter who was very attached to Baby H. Although they knew this was in their future, they didn’t know it would be so soon. And even though they are confident their little girl is healed now–that she is more whole than she ever would have been here–their pain is extraordinarily profound. My heart is shattered for them.
Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.
Amen. Come quickly, Lord Jesus.
