Baby Audrey

So, I've tried to take it easy on the posts requesting prayer for heavy and sad situations lately. For awhile I felt like I was constantly the bearer of bad news on here - and I'd really prefer to be uplifting. Nevertheless, I do believe that God brings stories and people into our lives for a reason... and so I have yet one more family who desperately need your prayers and support.

This one touched me deeply... because it involves a singer in my favorite Christian music group, Selah. They sing amazing arrangements of primarily hymns... most long forgotten in today's generation... and I adore their sound.

It's always an interesting experience when you have the opportunity to realize that people you put on a pedestal are simply that... people... just like you and me. A blogging friend of mine (thank you Jackie), inadvertently introduced me to the blog of Angie Smith. Her husband Todd is one of the three singers who make up Selah. They have three beautiful little girls and are pregnant with their fourth daughter. You will learn about their discovery and now journey with baby Audrey, who doctors assure them will not survive outside of the womb if you click here.

Angie is using this blog to share her heart and this painful story... and I would love nothing more than for her to know the encouragement and love that I did during my time with Ricky. So please take the time to pop over and maybe leave her a comment.

I've shared this family's blog with some friends... I'm so glad you did post this! Sometimes I just assume "famous" folks like them wouldn't share their personal life with mere strangers. What a cross to bear! That sure is one beautiful woman we need to pray for.

Hope your shower was perfect and Eric enjoyed his B-day!
