There are so many wonderful things happening in the blogosphere right now. There is so much hope, love, and faith.
There are also some pretty sad and scary things happening, too. Although I try to focus on the positive, there are some women in our world that can really use your support and prayers right now.
Please take a moment, if you can, to visit their page and leave a comment, a prayer, simply a word or two. Thank you.
The Smith Family
Angie, Todd, Abby, Ellie, and Kate Smith welcomed sweet Baby Audrey into the world on Monday, April 7, 2008 at 4:31 PM. Due to many complications, Audrey Caroline Smith went to Heaven at 6:45 PM today.
Molly Marie Benson was diagnosed with a rare heart condition early in the second trimester. Kathy, Bob, and Sean are now hoping for a miracle for their baby girl, but also stand ready to commit her precious soul to heaven. The courage and love of this family inspires me and gives me more reasons to believe in the goodness and grace of God.
Brown Eyed Girl
She has been through so much in the past few weeks, and yet this wonderful and courageous woman still keeps fighting. I am humbled and in awe of her ability to see the good in things, even after life keeps throwing curveballs her way.
William Henry Johnson
Amy is a mother with a broken heart. Her beautiful son, William, was born still. Her request on what would have been his birthday was that people do small, beautiful things in honor of her son's memory. She herself performed random acts of kindness and bestowed the recepients with cards that read: "An act of kindness in memory of my son, William Henry Johnson Born Still December 13, 2007 Born still...but still born. Always loved...never forgotten."
