30 Days of Truth: Day 6

Day 06 → Something you hope you never have to do.

I think that I agree with most others that have done this: I hope I never have to bury a child. My heart breaks when I hear about others that have had to do this. No matter the reason or how old those children are, it's just heartbreaking. Parents shouldn't have to bury their children.

OK, now I'm off to toss some salt over my shoulder, knock on some wood, cross my fingers, and say a bunch of prayers over my sleeping children, and the one that doesn't live here.

Thanks for the prayers :)

These posts always line up with my school. We have to do a case study on suffering for our final and we have a guest speaker who has gone through a lot of baby issues.

After 3 miscarriages in a row they gave birth to a 25 week old boy. He survived 3 times when he shouldn't have, and then died of sepsis 2 months later.

They adopted a little boy after this and actually just had a biological son 4 weeks ago (they didn't think they could get pregnant).

It is amazing to see the Lord's power.

Anyways, I like how your posts line up with my schoolwork. I hope you don't have to bury a child too. That would seriously suck.

Beautiful comment from Headless Girl. It is our greatest fear and it should not happen to parents. I will certainly keep your children in my prayers.
