A little sadness

It has been a sad couple of days in the Waters family.  Amanda discovered during a routine ultra sound that the baby had quietly died.  Instead of getting to hear a heart beat or know the sex of the baby – grief swept over the room.  

At times like this – when words fail us – the only thing I know to do is pray.
So we are praying for Phil & Amanda as we all take a deep breath and do some quiet grieving.  There was a time when pregnant and mortality were more closely linked.  My grandfather lost his wife and baby during birth.  Wendy’s grandfather lost his wife during the birth of her mother.  With modern medicine and the births happening mostly at hospital this has changed.

Dear Lord,
Thank you for your comfort and love.  Today we simply as you to keep your strong and encompassing arms around Amanda and Phil and all those who love and care – who feel this loss.
Amen.
