"For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin.

God said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
These Scripture were written by a dear friend of mine in my blog comments. Thank you Nicole. Thank you for taking the time to write out all that Scripture for me and for comforting our family and praying for us. Thank you all for being faithful to God's call to help us bear this grief.
All of you who are praying for our family, I would like you to pray specifically for Russell. He is 3 years old and he is taking this the hardest. He drops to the floor numerous time a day sobbing. He is aggressive, ornry, whiny, sad and inconsolable. This is not his normal self. It seems to get worse not better as the days pass. Our pediatrician, Dr. Rourke, said to expect him to get better and then to get worse, as his brain grows he will have to reprocess this grief numerous times. Please pray for my little "Snooby". He is so lost without his playmate, Gretta. They were only 14 mo. apart and he is just so sad.
