but I have not been able to write anything else either. It's been almost two weeks since my last post.
On Sat. Feb 20. my 2-year old nephew was hit by a vehicle and passed away. My heart is absolutely broken for my brother-in-law and his wife. I cannot imagine the pain that they are going through, and how badly they just want it to go away. I don't know if you ever completely stop feeling the pain of losing a child and I pray that I never have to find out. I pray for comfort and healing for their family. It's an awful, awful situation, and we don't know why, we may never know why these things happen. But, without a doubt, our Creator does and he is in ultimate control and I trust in His plan.
Alyssa asked me a couple of days after it happened, "Why did N have to die?". I told her, "I don't know, we may never know. But God knows and God has a plan for our lives and he had N's life planned. It's in these times that we have to trust that God's plan is perfect, even if we don't understand it." It's really hard to explain death to children, but this is what I am 100% sure of and she was comforted by these words and for this I am thankful.
