Joy and Sorrow

I spent some time this morning reading about Audrey Caroline Smith. I've shed many tears and been reminded that my Lord doeth all things well.

My heart and my arms ache for my own daughter, but I rejoice in the knowledge that she is with Audrey in heaven. They are safe and happy in the arms of Jesus. How can I wish them back to this world of hurt, sorrow and pain?

Oh, Jesus, help me to see You always in every storm and truly trust that You know and control every outcome. Thank you for allowing me to carry and love my Abigail while she was here with us.

What astounded me about this video was the true joy and peace on the mom's face. Would I have the grace to smile like that when handing my most precious treasures back to God? What great grace God gave her at that moment!

thanks for sharing.

my heart was so saddened and yet encouraged to see the grace of God in her life (and yours!).
