I can't do my ten today.  I am too sad.  A friend of mine lost her 3 month old baby today in a freak accident.  My heart is aching for her and her family.  She was the person who sold our birdhouse and was pregnant with this sweet baby as she helped us search for a new place to call home. Our grandparents were best friends and I have always thought of her like a cousin.  I have cried until I can't cry anymore.  I have begged and wept. My head aches and my heart aches.  There is nothing I can say.  I know that God is sovereign but that doesn't mean life is without pain and that's a hard pill to swallow when a baby dies.  All we have is prayer. 
Psalm 34:18 The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Oh, Payton. I'm so sorry. I saw all the notices on FB this afternoon. When I heard the details, I felt sick. We prayed for the family tonight at bunko... everyone there seemed to have some connection to the family. Please know that everyone who hears about this is on their knees.

praying for them and for all of the people who love them. It is such a terrible tragedy. Love the song - one of my favorites.
