Today is Cora's birthday -


Today is Cora's birthday..... please read her moms blog.  Cora Paige was born on March 5th, 2008, at 10:05 AM. She died last month, one short month of her first birthday, to cancer. In celebration of her life here and her birthday, her family is releasing pink balloons at her grave this morning.  

As brothers and sisters in Christ, we are to mourn, celebrate and rejoice with one another. I wanted The Mac's to know that they are not going through this alone, that there are people all over the world who are hurting for them, praying for them and also CELEBRATING the life of their little girl with them.  

We know Cora's is having the biggest party ever up in heaven now, but it doesn't take the pain or the sadness away from her family that miss her so much and want to be feeding her cake and singing this song to her.  

So I went out with Morgan this morning, and we had our own little celebration here in Florida in memory of Cora. 

Please pray for this family today.  Today is really hard for them.  A life that was taken so soon, but has done so much. Pray that God comfort them today, ease the pain in their hearts and continue to give this beautiful family strength to get through another day.  

Until we all see Cora again..... let's celebrate her birthday!!! Sing this song today!  The song that her mother has always wanted to sing to Cora on this day.

OMG, Misty! This is absolutely beautiful. I have tears running down my face. You are such a thoughtful person to put this together in honor of Cora. I think you should send it to Joel and Jess because I know they would love it too. God Bless you!
