My heart is breaking for you. A parent should never have to lose a child. I've been in a similar situation, and it is such a hard burden to bear. I know Jesus hears your prayers and knows your hearts, but if you ever need someone to talk to, who knows the grief and anguish you must feel, please, reach out to me. I will always listen and always love. May God soothe your souls, and may we never forget one of heaven's most precious angels.

Josh and Rosslee,
Psalms 94:14 says "When anxieties overwhelmed me, You comforted and soothed me." As you deal with this numbing anxiety of the death of baby Elisha, notice that our Creator is able and willing to comfort and soothe all of you. Please allow him to do this as you read his promises for all of us in his word, the Bible, Revelation 21:3,4 and Job 14:14,15.

I have thought about you all day, ever since mom told me. I am praying for you. I know that what I experienced was not exactly the same, but somewhat similar. The pain was real, and changed me as a person forever for I could empathize with others more than before. As bad as it hurts, the love of God is enough to keep that which you have committed unto him against that day. "For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day. 2 Timothy 1:12 I love you and know that I am and will be praying for you.
