A tiny, precious newborn boy, Price, has been called home. Born premature, his twin and he were doing reasonably well under the circumstances until complications fell upon baby Price and he passed away quickly. His parents are faithful and covered in Christ’s love; they inspire me through this heartbreak and other unfortunate events of the last several months. This week, especially, I am so envious of their strength and resolve. My well seems very dry tonight.~ nearly empty if not entirely.
Simply put, I’m not in a good place. The trials are getting the better of me despite my best intentions at staying Christ centered. I am tired and feeling like the battle is just beginning…and it’s a battle for sometthing I may not even need. So I’ll just ask for prayer…and lots of it. Please keep the Matthews family in prayer, as well, during this very difficult time.
“Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”
— James 1:12 (NIV)
