Life is precious

My heart aches right now. My cousin and his wife are expecting their third child in June. Yesterday they had an ultrasound done and found that the baby's brain has not developed. This is not treatable. They will be meeting with specialists on Monday to find out more. She will go through labor and delivery but need to be induced as the baby will be incapable of alerting her body that it is time. I cannot even begin to imagine the emotions they must be going through. As I hold my sweet baby boy and think about the other five children God has blessed us with I cannot help but shed tears as I am reminded again of how precious life is. Praise God that He is in control! Even though we don't understand, God is still GOOD! Please pray for my cousin and his wife.

Psalm 139:13-16
For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.

I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,

And that my soul knows very well.
My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Your eyes saw my substance,being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.

It was really sad to hear what was happening with your cousin. I will be praying for their family.

Amy, I met Heather once many years ago when she only had her first. It was at one of the WORS races. Anyway, please let her know that many people are praying for her - me especially! It is times like this that I praise God for my own precious children. Will you keep me informed, if you can?
