When it seems like it's all falling apart...

I often say to the Lord every morning of my life...my children...my husband, "they are yours Lord, I submit myself to your will," and almost always, I think "but what if you take one of them from me." and then I pray, "please give me the GRACE if that were to happen to glorify you." these are just words, and usually I just go about my day because none of us actually think that something terrible is going to happen to ourselves especially to these little and maybe not so little ones. But what happens when it does? What happens when your world falls apart? What happens when it goes from stomach infection to death in just a week? What happens when they air lift your 16 month old to the hospital and then try to keep him alive after his little heart stops breathing?! What...and why.... This is what happened to the Notgrass family. I don't know these people. I don't even know their first names, but was told their story about through Todd Wilson, of Family Man Ministries, in an This Old Schoolhouse Magazine weekly e-mail. Aparantly, after the life flight and little Avery being on life support there are hefty medical expenses. Would you consider donating here? For some reason this story, though I don't know the people, and know little of the details it resonated deeply with in my soul. Often, I feel stuck in situations like this. What, other than prayer, can I ofer this family? In this case there is something that we can tangibly offer and for that I am thankful. Compassion propells us to do something. Compassion is never stagnant. please prayerfully consider giving... I look around this am at these 4 littles the Lord has ever so lent to us for awhile. We are safe. Safe. But who knows what today or tomorrow holds. Praise the Lord we know the One who holds everything togerther even when it seems as if it's all falling apart...
