If you ended up at this blog today, please take a moment and pray for

Todd and Rosy and Teddy Fredeen.

This is the dear family who lost their sweet almost-six-year old Nina two months ago. Please pray that the LORD will fill them in a new way today, that He will hold them in their grief and flood them with love and comfort.

I don't know what it's like to hold and feed and play with and see a child, and then have to bury that child. I cannot imagine. But I do know the one thing I learned after a loss of my own:

There's no expiration date for grief.

Yes, the meals and phone calls and cards stop coming. But the loss remains.

God is sufficient for every need, but a child is no longer there for them to hold and feed and play with and see--and that kind of suffering must be extraordinary. And just because the world around them is still spinning and life has gone on doesn't mean that they aren't still in need of a good covering of prayer.
