I haven’t been on Facebook at all today. Nora had her 6 month appointment this afternoon to get caught up on her shots. We were thrilled to find that we now have a 10 lb. 1 oz. baby girl, which is a far cry from the 4 lb. 10 oz. little thing we brought home! The rest of the day was spent with her in the baffs and then I cuddled her while she slept for her afternoon nap.
I clicked on to Facebook this evening for a quick peek at things. There was a little boy who was mentioned on Nora’s page awhile back named Noah Alexander. I, along with many others, have been following his story and praying for him. I was absolutely broken-hearted to learn that he sprouted his little angel wings today. We just can’t figure these things out from our limited perspective and it hurts badly. I know that God is right there with Noah’s family holding them. I pray that they feel His presence and His Peace during this awful, difficult and unimaginable time. Please join me in praying for the Helton family as they embark on this difficult journey of healing.
And now this morning I just learned of Lane Goodwin’s passing. Please also pray for the Goodwin family in the same way — for comfort and peace as well as the promise of eternity where they will all be reunited again. No family should ever have to endure the loss of a precious child. My heart hurts for these families.
I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.
(Romans 8:18 NIV)
What a sad beginning of my day reading about Noah. Checked his page on Fbk and feel sooo sad. Only God knows. Poor thing spent most of his short life in the hospital. 😦
My prayers are with his parents.
Aleisa, please, tomorrow extra dose of 10 lb Nornor pics, to compensate the bad news… Seeing her always makes me happy !!.
My heart breaks for this family. I will be praying for them. Am very happy to hear that Nora is over 10#!!! I fell somewhat guilty posting anything joyous on this message, but Noah will live on in everyone he has touched (and even some that he hasn’t). Precious angels.
Way to go chubby Nora..must be all that mommy love and milkies. Praying for the other families whose little ones grew angel wings. Praying that God wraps his arms tightly around them during this time…and continually praying for chunky Nora.. Little miss fat cheeks!
Another sweet boy lost his fight on the 17th as well. A very sad week. Many wishes for the continued health of your Nora.
Layne lives not far from me. I have followed his page too. Wand was deeply saddened by his passing but amazed to keep hearing all of the stories of the lives he touched. Amazing!
WHAT SAD NEWS TO HEAR THAT TWO PRECIOUS BABY BOYS ARE NOT HERE WITH THEIR FAMILIES. I KNOW THAT ANGELS CAME AND WITH THEIR LITTLE ANGEL WINGS THEY FLEW TO THEIR HEAVENLY HOME WITH ANGELS PROTECTING THEM IN FLIGHT. THEIR HEAVENLY FATHER WAS WAITING FOR THEM WITH OPEN ARMS. PRAYING FOR THEIR FAMILIES THAT GOD WILL GIVE THEM STRENGTH TO GET THROUGH THIS DIFFICULT TIME. SOUNDS LIKE LITTLE MISS NORA IS GROWING LIKE A LITTLE WEED. SHE LOOKS SO BIG ALL STRETCHED OUT SLEEPING. SO HAPPY SHE IS FEELING SO MUCH BETTER NOW. LOVE YOU ALL.
