Prayer Needed

My heart is heavy today for some dear friends whose baby boy, Asa, was born still last night.  Please keep Anthony and Tara in your prayers today and in the next coming weeks.  Losing a child is so, so hard.  

Rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep.  Romans 12:15

  2. Thank you Sarah. Your request for prayer and the memorial mean so much to me. I've never felt Romans 12:15 so hugely before.

  3. Sarah, my heart stopped when I read this. Steven and I have already decided that if God gives us a little boy next that we would name his Asa. My heart goes out to your friends, as I somehow feel close to thier situation because of the name. I will ernestly keep them in my prayers. And of course, if she is looking for people to talk to, feel free to give her my email or point her toward my blog. My heart is deeply grieved. Lord, please, be with them.
