wow

so here i sit at the computer after having cried my eyes out for the last hour. I hadn't intended to still be awake, but after checking in on sandi's blog, i got sidetracked on this site:
http://audreycaroline.blogspot.com. It's the story of Todd & Angie Smith. He sings with Selah, and she has recently written a book. 2 years ago, their baby girl passed away after only living a few hours outside of the womb. Their story is absolutely unbelievable. Their pain is unfathomable to me. And yet their testimony is completely miraculous. I've got more to say - we heard an incredible message today about why bad things happen to good people - but I can't process it all right now. There are so many hurting people around. So many people whose lives have been absolutely turned upside down. Satan would have nothing more than to just sit back and laugh at how he has destroyed lives. Destroyed families. Destroyed marriages. Destroyed children. But then there are stories like Todd & Angie Smith. Who have absolutely been amazing testimonies of the fact that God is still God. That He never changes. and that His good WILL be accomplished - no matter what Satan is trying to use for evil. Unbelievable.

I have been reading and following Angie's blog for a year now and it is an amazing story and what God has done for them and others trough their grief.

I stumbled on their blog over a year ago and many more like it. I too would weep for these people I didnt' know praying at the same time that I would have the strength to endure that loss as they have.
