First things first.
Please visit my friend Holly's blog: http://carleighmckenna.blogspot.com . She gave birth to her sweet Carleigh last week, and is in the midst of preparing her sweet angel child's burial. She needs support - - and I think she should have all that we can give her. She is a woman full of grace and courage. Tell her so. She deserves to hear it.
Which leads me to my next topic.
How on earth do women do it? How do women bare children, and hand them back to our God quickly after? My heart has ached for this sweet mother, and in the back of my mind, I know I am weeks away from the same journey.
How do these sweet mothers go on to have the same faith in the same God to, in the future, deliver them a healthy baby again, down the road? Yet one of my closest and dearest friends had a healthy baby after Anencephaly a couple months ago. God remains the same, as should our faith, but I'll admit to my sweet Jesus, I am quickly exhausting. The sadness is more this week. A reminder of what stands to come. May God carry us all through it, is my humble prayer this evening. Please let it be yours, too.
