When you put a sparkling diamond on a black cloth it's brilliance radiates. In the same way, in the trial of the past few days, God has drawn our eyes back to the glory of the cross where love, hope, mercy and grace are found. Over the last few days I clearly see God pouring out his amazing grace so abundantly in my life, refining my heart and spurring me on to the goal of Heaven. God is using our baby to strengthen our marriage, to help us love each other more deeply and to cling more fervently to the message of the cross.
What an incredible privilege it was to be a parent even if it was for a few short weeks. We were given the opportunity to care for and to love our child, delighting in the miracle we had created by God's grace. Baby George will never have to experience the burden of sin, pain or suffering on this earth and has the privilege of going to be with the Lord for eternity for which I am eternally thankful. I trust that George has a loving Heavenly Father who can care for him better than we could ever have hoped to here on earth, and one day we will see God's face in all his glory and meet George.
This, I am sure will help equip us to minister to, and be loving and caring friends to those who suffer in a similar way in the future.
