Loss

Job 1:21

And he said:
"Naked I came from my mother's womb, And naked shall I return there. The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; Blessed be the name of the Lord."

We lost our sweet baby this afternoon.  Really, to tell of God's grace has been a joy and delight to my soul.  I was feeling fine all morning, attended a knitting class with my friend while all the children were being well cared for, then began to feel less than okay during the class.  Lisa drove me home and within seconds the baby came, rather painlessly.

Above and in it all, God is Sovereign.  I have never miscarried before and now He has given me a profound sensitivity for other moms who have gone this path before. Isn't He just so good to equip us that way?

Ladies, thanks for your prayers.  I don't even know most of you, but believe me, I felt those prayers.
