Prayers Needed Please...

 Edited Friday evening.....the family appreciates so much all your concern and prayers.  It is very difficult but God is giving strength.  Thank you.

As I type this I really can't believe it.  It was almost to the day a year ago that I asked for prayer for Kathy and her family in the death of her son's wife at childbirth.  Now this year I ask you to pray for my cousin and her family.  My cousin Betty's grandaughter's baby boy, 4 months old was found not breathing this morning.  You can imagine the awfulness of this and especially at this time.  We don't know if it was SIDS yet.  This would be my like great, great, great cousin.
We definately don't understand do we, when something like this happens.  I know firsthand the pain of losing a baby.  
Just yesterday his mommy (on facebook) posted pictures of Colby in his Christmas outfit.
Jesus has another sweet baby with him this Christmas.

Oh my goodness, those poor parents, I pray that Jesus will hold them in his arms through this. I also lost an (unborn) baby and I know the intense pain.

Hugs,

Oh- The heartbreak-especially at this time of year. I will NEVER understand, this side of Heaven, why God chooses to take a child home and leave a gaping hole in a young family. God bless everyone. xo Diana

I am so sorry Ceekay. My cousins baby passed away a few month ago when he was 3 months old and it was SIDS. Very hard time for your family. I am so sorry. I don't understand these things either, but having Faith in the ONE who does knows helps get us through. I will pray for your cousin. God Bless.

Oh Ceekay, this breaks my heart. The smile on that babies face would melt anyones heart. It is so difficult for us to understand. God has a plan for him in heaven. My prayers will go out for his family. I can't even imagine what they are going through. God bless!

I will remember this tonight and every time since. Thanks for stopping by. Richard from My Old Historic House. Merry Christmas.

Marie said...

This is so heart breaking! I have been following a mother on her blog that lost her, Maddie, at four months the same way. She has really had a hard time dealing with her loss. They are now expecting a baby boy and are thrilled and sad at the same time. My heart goes out to the family of this baby--his picture is beautiful. God certainly has a little angel and maybe he will meet Maddie.
Love,
Marie

This is so sad Ceekay. It has been five years since we lost our precious Elijah.

Prayers for this sweet angel and his family. He will live in their hearts forever, as Elijah lives in ours.
