Tonight, I Am Sad

Leslie Joy Evans left here to hold her babies in the presence of her Heavenly Father this morning. And while the homecoming I'm sure was something to behold, my heart can't help but ache for the family left behind.

To have endured so much loss in such a short period of time, it's almost cruel. No. It IS cruel. It doesn't make sense to my finite mind.  I can't comprehend.

So tonight I am sad.  My words seem so little tonight.  In the face of grief that is so crushing, so raw, I can't put into words anything that sounds remotely wise.  So instead I'll just pray.  Join me if you will in lifting up Mark, his children, and the rest of the family.  May they find comfort and peace until they someday see Leslie again.


  1. I can't comprehend either... it just breaks my heart. I can not imagine the feelings her husband and children have right now. It's not easy to step into an already made family (I married a man with three kids too, and I know the commitment it takes.) I just can't understand this... I know that we aren't meant to understand it all... Praying for the family to find peace in such a hard situation.

  2. I saw this on your blog and just cried through her story. I cannot even imagine the sorrow they are going through at this time and so I will get on my knees this morning and pray, pray, pray. Hard to believe God is control, but He knows when we just can't understand. Thank you for sharing so we can lift her family up in so much prayer.

  3. Wow - her story is so tragic. I am so sorry for your loss and the loss of her family. I pray that God's peace will surround you today and heal your pain.

  4. My heart sank as soon as I saw the title of your post. My husband and I will pray since that's all I know to do. I pray for strength for the kids & her husband. I just can't fathom their pain.


Let me know what you think!
