Happy Birthday, Makiah!

Today, a very special and beautiful little girl is celebrating her birthday.  Today, she is 6 years old.  Today, her Mama, Daddy, and little sisters are celebrating without her.  Makiah went to heaven on October 8, 2010 because of an irresponsible teenager who was high on marijuana.  Makiah never got to meet her baby sisters.  Her little sisters will never know a life with their big sister in it.

Makiah's Mama, Rachel, is such a Godly woman.  I've never had the pleasure of meeting her in real life (one day I will!), but she has inspired me so many times with her words.  It breaks my heart that Rachel knows the pain of burying her first born child.  It breaks my heart that Alena and Abby will never know their big sister. It breaks my heart that the sweet little girl Rachel is carrying will also never know her biggest sister.

I know that I'll never understand why sweet, innocent children are taken from their loving earthly homes so soon, but I continue to remain faithful that we will see our children again.

Please pray for Rachel, Cameron, Alena, Abby and their unborn little girl as they celebrate the life of their first daughter and big sister today.  I know all too well how heavy their hearts are and how bad they long for their precious child.
