It’s been tough this past week and a half.
We found out that my brother and sister-in-law’s sweet baby girl would not live.
What they thought would be a joyful ultrasound where they would find out if they were having a boy or girl was actually filled with sorrow. They learned that their sweet baby girl would not survive. Her heart was not beating as it should. She was retaining fluid and she had stopped growing properly. Her heart just couldn’t continue on.
This past Thursday they learned she had passed away. Sweet baby Bella Elyse was born on Friday morning around 7:00am. Her body may have been born to this world, but her precious soul was in the arms of Jesus.
Please pray for my brother, my sister-in-law, (who is very much a sister, to me), their three little boys, my parents and her parents as they attend a very private service today.
Heavenly Father, We come before you today with hearts that are broken and bleeding. The grief and sorrow are great, but we know you are the Comforter. Lord, I pray today that you would surround them with your sweet, comfort. Hold them close, fill them with Your Presence. As the days continue, I just pray for healing of their hearts. You are Jehovah Rapha, the Healer. Through this time of sorrow, pain and trial, I know you will prevail. Draw them to you Lord Jesus with Your everlasting love.
In Your Precious and Holy Name,
