Unimaginable sorrow

As I write this tonight my heart is truly broken, words cannot express the sadness that flows through me at this very moment. My sister Denise and I went for an ultrasound on monday and while there we found out that her baby had died. She had to go through labor and deliver him. He is the most beautiful little boy with a head of silky black hair. He is perfect in every way. Denise is unbelievably strong and she was amazing through the labor. And as I watch her and Ron holding Sophia I can only imagine what is running through their minds. I don't know why they need her right now, but I know that whatever they need we will do our best to offer. Pray for Dasanee and Davion as they are asking so many questions and are too young to understand.
If you are reading this I ask that you would just lift Denise and Ron and their other children up in continual prayer as they walk this path of unimaginable sorrow. As thanksgiving is tomorrow remember to be thankful for your family, don't take for granted that you will be together tomorrow. We are never promised a tomorrow. We are promised eternity and we know we will see RJ one day again. I know for now he is in the arms of my Savior, but right now we want him here with us. Pray for us please.

I am so sorry - my heart breaks for your sister and the family. This happened to a friend of mine a few years ago and as I watched them go through this with amazing grace I learned that only God can provide what we need - through Him and because of Him we can walk through the valley of the shadow of death. I am praying.
