A Swift Punch to the Gut...

I was catching up on my blog reading today...and tuned in to Matt, Liz, and Madeline. Before I lightened my blogroll, I was an ever faithful reader of the newborn identity and the Spohrs are multiplying, where Heather and Mike wrote with great talent and humor about their baby Maddie. Today...as I was reading Matt Logelin...he posted that Maddie had passed away...pause...pause...sigh...I just read her blog a week ago when she was playing April Fool's day jokes on her Dad and Maddie was sitting in the high chair laughing...how does this happen? Please take a moment to keep Maddie and her family in your prayers through this most hearbreaking time...

I just read that yesterday, too. Very sad and sudden.

Just played catch-up on your last few blogs with it all ending in massive tears rolling down my cheeks with near sobs as I was sharing your words with Larry. After the readings, I asked Larry what on Earth had I ever done to deserve such a wonderful daughter? Then the thought came, "Of course, it is nothing more than God's never ending Grace and Mercy."

Thank you Lord once again for your Grace and Mercy.

See you soon, Sweetie, luv yo mama

Beyond words... how do people move forward from that?

Prayers for this family.
