    Some of you know that I have been counting down the days to our daughter's birth. We lost her on Thursday night, and my wife went into a very painful labor period of 46 hours before they finally delivered Michal Lynn by C-Section. Your prayers are requested and appreciated. Kristi and I will bury our first child on Friday, and know only that God's hand is in this somewhere... thanks for the prayer.

    In His Grip,
    joshua

    I'm so sorry Joshua. My heart sank reading this. As a new first time father, know that I will keep you and your wife in my prayers.

    Have comfort that this separation from your beatiful daughter is only temporary.

    If there is anything I can do, please PM me.

    Oh, my, Joshua, I join all the others who hurt for you and Kristi. Nothing I can say will make the pain go away--and it won't for a long time. Even though you will never get over this, our precious Lord will provide all you need to get through it. Out of my own experience--while you are going through this dark time, give God praise.

    Joshua, My Brother,

    Know that you and your wife are in our prayers at this time. I am praying and trusting God that He will provide you all you will need in this time. I know that your heart is broken as you are experiencing what many in these boards only know as discussion issues. Here is where God is real and I know that He loves you and your wife. Please know that though we may not meet this side of heaven, you are loved by your brother in Arizona. If there is anything, I mean anything, I can do to help lift your burden, please send me a private message.

    May God's love, grave and mercy be your portion today and in the days ahead.

    Bro Tony

    Oh Joshua;
    My heart is broken for you and your wife. I can only think of the Lord holding your hand and that of your wife's. We struggle for words that will comfort but Jesus said "I will never leave you". These will be very trying times for you and we must all continue to pray. God Bless and be with you and hold your hand.:tear: :tear:

    I pray God's comfort for you and your wife! This is a time of hard circumstances as such grave loss is dealt with! It is a time when a full awareness of God's sovereignty brings the utmost comfort of all. When we know that not one little detail enters our life without first passing through His Hand it is a comfort! It is when we ask ourself, Would we experience only good from His hand?
    I pray that the awareness of His presence bring comfort to both of you and that you become closer to Him and even to each other during this time!
    Psalm 57: 1

    I have a Maker, He formed my heart;
    Before even time began, my life was in His hands.
    I have a Father, He calls me His own,
    He'll never leave me, no matter where I go.
    He knows my name, He knows my every thought,
    He knows each tear that falls, and hears me when I call.
    :flower:

    Your siggy say it all! He is both with you and He loves and cares for His little ones! She is with HIm!
