A hole in our hearts

Today is February 3rd. Two years to the day, when we lost our precious nephew Isaac William Sward. With each passing day, we miss him more and more. We are praying today for our precious brother and sister in law, Scott and Andrea. They now live in Cambodia, serving as missionaries. How we wish we could just be with them.
The sadness I feel brings me to the words of David in Psalm 23, and the hope that only comes from our Lord Jesus Christ.
"The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me: your rod and your staff they comfort me. You prepare a table before me, in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil: my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever."

  1. Sweet post Lauren, I am sorry your family is hurting. May God wrap his gentle arms around you all and comfort you. I think there is little anyone can say to comfort you guys but knowing that Jesus is holding little Isaac has to offer a smidge. It's so unfair for life to end so soon when there was such hopes and expectations for a life filled with hugs and kisses. I hope Scott and Andrea are doing ok.
