Blessings in Tragic Times

I have been blessed over the last week as I read the following blog, from start to finish, http://noahsteven.blogspot.com/2007_01_01_archive.html, about the life and death of Noah, the lives he touched during his short life, and the faith and trust of one remarkable family. The blessing to me was experiencing the love and devotion of this family in a quest to get a diagnosis for their son in order to provide treatment. Their perseverance during the most difficult days was an inspiration for the entire world, as this blog obtained hits from every continent. Finally, with this same faith and trust they accepted Noah's death. What devotion to their son and to God, what an inspiration for anyone experiencing pain and suffering... The world is a better place because of this precious family and the brief but meaningful life of their son Noah! They are and will continue to be in my prayers.

Nancy,
I went over and starting reading through this family's story. I need to be able to have a bigger block of time to do it full justice as it is a compelling story.
Thanks for the link..
May your day be filled with blessings...
:)

You know Nancy, it was my niece Sarah (In the Midst of It) who led me to Noah and I followed their story. It's very sad but it really is also inspirational. This family is a wonderful example of God's grace at work.

How incredibly heartbreaking. I can't even begin to imagine what it must be like to lose a child. I will make sure to say a prayer for them.

I am going to have to go and check this out. I haven't heard of this story.

Thanks for commenting on my blog the other day. I also saw that you commented on Diane's blog (Partners in Prayer) about possible interest in the blogger getaway. My mother and I are hosting it and I have info on my blog about it if you are interested! ;-) We'd love to have youQ

Oh Nancy, I have been following the story of Noah's life too. So burdened for that family... but sooo blessed to see them give God the glory through it all.
I am in awe of their faith... they are pointing many to Jesus... and many will come to know Him through Noah's short but very important time here on earth.
