See You Soon, Cora! (It's 1:00 PM) I'm in Tears!

Dear Father: 

I want to stop and take this moment out of my day, to give my heart and mind in prayer to you for this dear family.  Lord, although this is a joyful time for Cora, Lord, it is the most painful time for her parents.  I can not imagine this moment, Lord, and it breaks my heart to allow my mind to go there and experience such a time of sadness as this for these parents.  

Please, please, please...comfort Cora's parents and family.  Assure them how happy she is and healthy and pain free.  Hold them close to you, Lord, and let them know that you love them more than ever today.  

This family is hurting, as much as they want to celebrate this little angels beautiful life here with them, they are grieving in the most unimaginable way.  To lose a child; what is more painful that that here on earth? 

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans … to give you a future and a hope … You will find me when you seek me, if you look for me in earnest.” Jeremiah 29:11, 13 (LB)

Baby Cora:

"Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I set you apart for my holy purpose. I appointed you to be a prophet to the nations." Jeremiah 1:5

Cora's little face was just in front of me all day yesterday. All I was talking about was Cora to everyone I came in contact with. I am in prayer.

Praying, praying, praying. For comfort and peace for this family. A day that no parent should face. My heart just aches though for them....more than I know how to deal with.

Your love for this little girl and the obvious way you care about her family just makes my heart melt. You are an incredible woman.

I so love that in one short week you will get to witness a new life coming into this world. It will be incredible for you! I am so glad you will be there for our friend!

I stopped and hugged my baby girl today at 1pm and just cried and cried. She asked why I was sad...what do you say?
Thanks for leading us in prayer today. I so wish I could just hug Joel and Jess. It is painful for me with so many, many tears...I cannot imagine their agony!

That picture of Cora is just adorable. It just breaks my heart that she died, I can't imagine how her family is feeling.

Hey, could you click on my icon and check out my sample blog? I don't know how to get a background for the whole blog, now. I have a color picked out, but only can get the header up. Also, don't know how to do 3 column like my present blog. (Someone else did it.)

Thanks, Misty!

I just wanted to write to you to let you know that I am feeling the same anxiety and fear that you have been dealing with this week. I came across Cora's families blog on Sunday night and literally say and cried my eyes out over this precious little baby girl. She has been on my mind ever since and I truly just ache for them. Thank you for your original post about your fears and anxiety. It was comforting to know that someone else is having the same feelings, and that the best thing to do is just give them over to God. I have been praying for her family all week, but I will also be praying for you as well.

With love,
Another Bloggy Mom
