Just moments after I wrote the previous post, I checked my email and received word that sweet little Jake Davis had returned to his Heavenly Father last night just a little after 6:00 PM. He was with his loving parents who had vigilantly stayed by his side since the moment this whole thing happened.
I can't even begin to understand the dynamics of their situation...but I do know that God is in charge. I know that their selfless act of letting their baby go "home" is blessed and right. Now our prayers are prayers of compassion, strength and comfort for this sweet family who is aching as they have expressed their goodbyes to their beloved son. Prayers asking for the tender mercies of the Lord. We will rally around them and support them in any way possible. We will love them and help them in any way we can. Together we will get through this and we will all be better for it.
Just like these kids who trekked this weekend were SO glad to go home, so too is baby Jake glad to be "home" in the loving arms of our Savior...and, although we mourn this great loss, we are glad for him too...
I am a woman who loves her life! I have been blessed with the most wonderful husband on the planet. He is a man of integrity and honor who truly inspires me to be a better woman. My 4 children and 6 grandchildren (whom I affectionately call my *Littles*) are the light of my life. I am always looking for new and innovative ways to create value in the lives of others. My God, Family and Country are the most important things in my life...Oh, and I love the Beatles!
