No Words

Words simply cannot express my emotions right now, so I'm just going to ask you to pray.

Please pray for the Delgado family. Jason and Vanessa lost their beautiful conjoined twin baby girls earlier this evening. I wish I understood why these things happen to some and not others, but I will not even attempt to understand the ways of God. I know that He is good and gracious and merciful, but more importantly He is Sovereign. And I take comfort in that.

I know these precious babies are complete and whole and resting in our Savior's arms this very moment. And that might possibly be the only thing that keeps my heart from breaking in two for this sweet couple right now.

Please, please take a moment and pray for them. The road ahead will most certainly be difficult and I know their hearts are breaking. But I also know that they know the Healer of broken hearts and will find their refuge in Him.

Job 1:21
And he said, “Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked shall I return. The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.”
