Why

That’s the big question I am asking myself constantly tonight.  A local couple from the church we sometimes attend here in Greenville lost their 4 month old son today.  I don’t know all the details.  Just that he was a healthy, growing baby boy who apparently rolled himself over on his stomach this morning and was later found not breathing.

And I have been asking God, “WHY?!”.  I know our God is powerful and mighty and that there are reasons for things that we can not see.  But I just keep thinking that babies should NOT die.  This is the second child this age that we have known of that has died in the last 9 months.  Such a horrible tragedy that has afflicted two different families that we know.  My heart hurts for both of these families.  Please say prayers tonight (and continually) for Lindsey and Jeremy Jones (who lost their son today) as well as Ashlee and Aaron Proffitt (whose baby boy died last December).  Coincidentally, both of their sons were named Aaden.  And they now both are with Jesus in Heaven.

God please provide them with the peace that ONLY YOU can provide.  And Jesus . . . please return soon.  Sometimes this life is just to painful and we anxiously await your return!
