For Judy

This bouquet is dedicated to Judy.
My dear blogging friend Judy, grandmother to five wonderful children
had the experience of holding a newborn, "Baby Hannah"
for just a few short hours today.
God, then chose to wrap his everlasting arms
around her and took her home.
Take a few minutes to read Judy's story
of courage, support and perserverance
for her family and her newborn grandaughter, "Hannah"

I'm feeling at a total loss of words tonight,
but ache deeply for Judy and her family.
Only the heart of a grandmother can hurt and ache with pain
as we watch our young ones grow, some only for a short time,
others live with imperfections that make it difficult to thrive,
and others are healthy. He didn't promise an easy life.
And yet God created life and he taketh away.

May we continue to support each other and
share the journey of walking through life together.

We can say with confidence that while God's purposes and
plans are very different from ours,
He is infinitely just and His timing is alway perfect.

"The secret things belong to the Lord our God,
the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever,
that we may follow all the words of this law."
Deuteronomy 29:29
