Jeff and Dawn's little boy~~Andrew James "AJ"~~was born into heaven today. Dawn had a doctor's appt this morning and AJ's heart had already stopped beating. She went home to prepare to be induced and went into labor. With AJ being #4 and so tiny, he came quickly. So quickly he was born at home. We were all at the hospital this evening and everyone got a chance to hold little AJ and love on him a bit. Such a tiny soul. Even Brian and Shawnie were there~same hospital. Same waiting room taken over by the God Squad. Same peace. We buried their son Jesse on Saturday in a beautiful service and will be placing Andrew to rest next to him on Wednesday afternoon. Please pray for all the families.
I just posted this on my fridge. I hang onto it daily since my mom died 4 years ago.
What is your only comfort in life and in death?
That I am not my own, but belong—body and soul,in life and in death—to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ. He has fully paid for all my sins with his precious blood, and has set me free from the tyranny of the devil. He also watches over me in such a way that not a hair can fall from my headwithout the will of my Father in heaven:in fact, all things must work together for my salvation.
Because I belong to him,Christ, by his Holy Spirit,assures me of eternal life and makes me wholeheartedly willing and readyfrom now on to live for him.
