Today, scrolling past all the flags & posts honoring Veteran's Day, I came across a status talking of the birth of a beautiful baby girl. Her birth weight was 6 pounds & 4 ounces. She measured 20" long. She entered this world in silence -- to be held by weeping parents, aunts, uncles & grandparents. As this tiny child grew in the womb of her mother, she became loved by those around her. As the due date approached, the doctors saw signs of distress. Despite the prayers of numerous loved ones & the expert care of medical personnel, the sweet baby girl died in utero before her parents could even hear a first cry for breath.
While one year from today, I'll once again remember & honor those who have served this country, November 11th will never be the same for my friends. They will wake up from now on thinking of what could have been with that tiny baby who was birthed on November 11th and whom they held tightly and kissed good bye.

Please join me as I lift this young family in prayer. Pray that they hold on to HOPE that comes from the one who laid down his life for us so that we could have eternal life.
