I’m not sure what to say.
Words do not seem adequate.
Today the Mommy & Daddy of sweet Cora
began the most painful journey imaginable.
Their beautiful baby girl was called home to Heaven
less than a month after being diagnosed with cancer.
“Why, Lord? I don’t understand.”
These words will be whispered in prayers for years to come.
Sweet Cora will never play in her 1st birthday cake.
Sweet Cora will never give her Mommy & Daddy the joy
of watching her take her first steps, or of hearing her say,
“I love you.”
The joys sweet Cora brought to her Mommy & Daddy for nearly a year,
will have to sustain them.
Though the joys be abundant, they may not seem like enough.
Sweet Cora is in the loving embrace of Jesus,
and there she will stay and wait…
As Mommy & Daddy must wait as well.
Rest… Sweet Cora.
Heaven is sweeter tonight.
I know God is sovereign & He does not make mistakes.
But sadness such as this can cause the heart to fail,
and the mind to forget.
So, please pray for Joel & Jess as they face life after loss.
