My heart is breaking today as I think of my dear adopted family in Halifax mourning the loss of their child/grandchild/niece. Siri-Ann was born January 31 and died 2 hours later. One of the things that has impressed me about this family from the moment I met them, is their desire to glorify the Lord in everything they do -and this circumstance has not changed their outlook on life. The family is praising the Lord for the ability to hold her for those 2 hours. To be able to meet her and know her before the Lord took her home. What a blessing and WHAT a testimony this family has and is displaying in the face of so much sadness.
What a rebuke for me as a Christian. I find myself often complaining about the little things in life and never taking time to thank the Lord for the blessings He has given me. May this be a reminder to me in the future. And may the Lord comfort the Parrett/Turpin families during this time.
