We've spent the bulk of this blog documenting the painful rollacoaster that has been our week. From the birth of our twins Adelaide at 2:09am and Wyatt at 2:12am on the 7th to the painful loss of Adelaide this morning at approximately 4am. We were redeemed by your prayers and given peace by how well Wyatt has responded today, I don't know what the future holds for him, but today he has been unbelievably strong and healthy and it has everything to do with the many prayers lifted on his behalf.
There is a couple who have twin boys next to us in the NICU and unfortunately are going through a very similar situation. I don't know the children's name but I met the father today and I see in his eyes the worry and pain I know that I have in mine. Both of their beautiful boys are still fighting, but only one is doing well, the other is in a real battle and has been very up and down. We've had more people look at this blog than I ever imagined and so I want to ask you all to pray for this family as well, pray for their boys. Knowing how hard it is to lose a child, no matter how brief their precious life, I can't imagine anyone having to go through this and pray that no other parent does.
I pray for for the health of those two you children, that God my provide his breath of life and deliver them from the current struggles. I pray that those boys will have the opportunity to grow in stature and faith just as Jesus did, and I pray for the parents that they have the peace now to rest and the strength and wisdom to raise those boys to leaders of men and thankful for the gifts they've been given. I pray these with all the love that I have in Jesus name, Amen.
One caveat, it appears that they would be raised to be Louisville Cardinal fans, so as the healing takes place and the wisdom grows pray also that the will be led into the land of blue and white!
(I'm sorry, I couldn't resist. A bit of poor taste maybe, but we have to smile in these times)
