This post written with a heavy heart and the confession that sometimes I just don’t understand why God allows some things to happen. I don’t know what to say…and so I pray.
Today I’m praying for my co-worker James, a wonderful Dad whom together with his wife Dawn adopted sweet baby Isaac (then 10 mos old) from Ethiopia in May of this year.
Isaac is a gift from God, and an answer to years of praying by this precious couple who wanted to be blessed with the sweet, sweet titles of Mom and Dad.
Today James and Isaac are saying good-bye to Dawn; James’ beautiful wife and Isaac’s sweet mommy. After a very, very brief battle with brain cancer God called Dawn home last Tuesday.
Words fail me. I don’t understand. I don’t pretend to understand. I just trust…and pray and ask you to pray for this precious father and baby son and their extended family too. A father who has lost his life partner and a son who has lost the Mommy that he knew for all too brief a time.
Please join me today in lifting these friends in prayer. God hears all of our prayers and I know James will appreciate all those who are standing in the gap for him.
