Jake

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've been following along on the Davis' blog. My heart hurts for this family, but I am overwhelmed and at a loss for words at the strength they have during this time. I will continue to pray for them.

My prayers go out to this family. But hopefully they can find the reassurance needed to know that he is in our Heavenly Father's care now and no longer suffering.
