February 2

My heart is breaking tonight. My friend Kat gave birth to a beautiful baby boy yesterday (after thinking he was a girl all along). He was born with some complications, but they expected him to pull through. Today little Caleb went home to be with the Lord.  I have been on the verge of tears (if not completely lost in them) since I heard the news.  I don't know why things like this happen. I have no answers.  My heart breaks when I hear stories like this - especially when it's someone I know.

Please be in prayer for Kat and her family - Caleb has 2 older brothers who are going to have to "figure this out" and I have no clue how a child processes something like this.  Kat and her family are missionaries to Peru - they are in a different country, without family and friends around, with a  language barrier. Just pray that the Lord will comfort them, and wrap his loving arms around them during this time.

The Lord gives, and the Lord takes away.......Blessed be the Name of the Lord.
