I apparently decided today was the day to read three tear-jerker blog posts in a row. But all are beautiful, sad, grace-filled posts that will bless you, so here they are.
1. A Musing Maralee is doing a series for Pregnancy and Infant Loss awareness month. Here is a letter to the baby she lost in an ectopic pregnancy, which sums up so much of my own experiences.
2. R.C. Sproul, Jr is a presbyterian pastor who lost his wife to cancer and then his daughter with special needs in the span of a few short months last year. He has written lots of insightful posts about suffering and loss, but this one marking the anniversary of his daughter's death is especially poignant.
3. And finally, all my praying friends, please pray for the Tippetts family. Jason is a PCA church planter in Colorado Springs and we actually stayed at his house this summer while they were on vacation and Jeff's parents were evacuated from the forest fire. Kara is his wife and a mom to four children; she is just now facing a diagnosis of stage 4 breast cancer. She writes beautifully in the midst of her suffering and is using this tragedy to talk of her hope in Christ. Pray for her healing.
