Urgent Request

If I have learned anything in the time that I have been blogging it is how loving and generous the blogging community is. Especially in time of need. I have followed the blog, 'Wildflower Cabin' for quite a long time now. In fact I think Janice's blog was one of the first to go on my blog roll. My dear friend Nanna called my attention to Wildflower Cabin today in an e-mail. Janice's little 13 month old grand daughter, Poppy died following a car accident the 13th of this month. It is breaking my heart to type this, as I am sure each of you reading this are feeling the same ache in your hearts. Death of any kind can be hard to deal with because we never want to let go of those that we love. When it comes to the death of a child it is always so much more difficult to deal with for the plain and simple reason that their lives are just beginning. I would give anything if I had the words that would take away the pain that little Poppy's family is going through. I'm afraid that the only thing that can do that is prayer and time. As a blogging family we can all reach out to Janice and her family through prayer. Please post this prayer request on your blogs and ask others to post it on theirs. Janice has also asked that anyone that has suffered the loss of a child to please e-mail her with words of encouragement that she can print off for Poppy's Mama and Daddy. She is very concerned for her daughter, as she is feeling that she can never live her life again. Janice's e-mail address is posted on her profile page.

Janice, please know that prayers are going up for the family, that you will feel God wrap you all in the warmth of His healing love and He will help you get through the days and the weeks ahead.

Oh no, how very sad! As you say, a death is always hard to take but when it's the death of a child, it just seems that much worse. My prayers are with the family. Such a tragedy. xoxo

That is so tragic. The loss of any life is sad but especially when it is a child. I will definitely be praying for them and will visit Janice's blog to offer my heart-felt sympathy.
