Praise The God Who Gives and Takes Away …

Some days our troubles really aren’t all that important …

Yesterday I came across a Facebook page asking for prayers for a family.  The request for prayers was for the family of a 20 year old woman who lost her life while giving birth to her son.  It absolutely broke my heart.  I don’t know this couple or family but I sat and read all of the outpouring of love and prayers.  Many from strangers that read about their story online.

Through their photographs it told an unspoken story, a young couple so very much in love with so much to look forward to.

Their story … Prayers For The Marlowe Family

From there I ended on the girls personal Facebook page …

What appeared as her last entry ~ about a week prior to her passing ~ she posted this …

As the thunder rolls, I barely hear You whisper through the rain ” I’m with you” and as your mercy falls, I raise my hands and praise the God who gives and takes away..

And I’m absolutely speechless …

  1. dear friend…..you are such a wise and compassionate woman. Thank you for sharing such a moving story and reminding us that there are still good and decent people out there who can care about strangers.

  2. Thank you Jody for reminding me what’s important in life. I thought I was having a crappy day but this puts things back in perspective for sure. I will keep my family in my prayers as well.
