This morning, a friend of a friend suffered a tremendous loss. She gave birth to a son on Thursday weighing in at almost 5 pounds. They observed him for 4 days because he was born at 35 weeks. All was well. They brought the baby home last night. At 3AM, the mother went to wake the baby for a feeding and found that her son was not breathing. The father is a Fireman and immediately gave their son CPR. Their son never was revived. At times like this we question many things. How can there be a God? How could God allow something like this to happen to such an innocent, defenseless life? What did the parents to wrong? What could the parents have done to prevent this? I can not anwer any questions as to why this happened. I believe God wants those who suffer to put their faith/trust in him. Even though they will NEVER understand why this happened, I pray that they will get peace and understanding thru this horrible time. A time I can not and do not want to even try and understand. As a mother myself, this has touched me more. I just hugged on my son all day today and THANKED God for giving him to me… I think we all need to remember the things we need to be thankful for because they can just as easily be taken away from us in the blink of an eye. Please, love and appreciate all those around you. Be thankful for what you have been blessed with. And please say a special pray for this family.
