Hey everyone. I was just checking in with Sophie Kate’s online friends tonight (Sun. Sept. 28) b/c I had been a bit behind due to our very busy weekend when I found out that another one of her friends has passed away. This precious angel was just a few months younger than SK and had spent way too much of his short life in the hospital. I am just devastated for this family. What does this all mean? What is this all for? All of this hurt, pain, heartache and suffering that our precious babies and families have to go through, I don’t get it, AT ALL!!
Is this what Sophie is headed for months or years down the road? Or it might just be years and years of pain and suffering b/c of the way her brain is causing her body to jerk and pull. I heard this just this week and right now I can’t remember where I was (and I have heard this all of my life) that God doesn’t make mistakes, He makes everyone special just as He designs. Really? He made Sophie to hurt and be in pain and very possibly never utter a single word or ever understand who her parents are? And we are supposed to live the rest of our lives this way? How can we possibly? Why is this happening to our babies?
I cannot make sense of this b/c it does not make sense! These children have so much to deal with in their lives that I am not going to even begin to list or describe, but it is just one thing after another, constant struggle, constant battle. Ya’ll I cannot imaging hurting any more than I hurt over Sophie pretty much daily but I guess if I did not have God’s love and comfort in my life then it would be worse. I am able to get out of bed each morning b/c of the strength He gives me. I have no strength of my own left. Are there no words for such a situation and time as this? No words, only prayer. Please remember this family in your prayers this week and in the upcoming weeks.
God of heaven and earth, be real to this family right now. This precious angel is in Your presence at this very moment and we rejoice in that and we know that he is no longer hurting. Give Your peace and Your comfort to the loved ones he left behind, God hold them close to You and surround them with Your love. All of this in the name of Jesus, “that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:10.
