Six Word Saturday

Here's how it works: describe your life -or something- in six words. Explain or don't, either way, have fun! Visit Cate at Show My Face to read all about it and get started! :)

Sad day, prayers appreciated for family.

Today my roommate's niece and her husband are removing the respirator from their four day old daughter. Prayers are definitely welcome for this trying time for the family. The decision was not made lightly, and frankly was the most unselfish thing they could have done.

For the last couple of days I've been praying for a new family, my roommate's niece and her husband. They're young... just 18... and had their first child on Tuesday. Yesterday that found out that she has a chromosonal disorder that affects the brain and lungs. She would be on a respirator her whole life.

Today I'm trying to comprehend. To understand what God has planned for taking this newborn baby. I'm searching for the peace that exceeds my understanding (Phil 4:7). I'm one of those people that tries to analyze what God is up to... what's His plan?

If you could all join me in prayer for this young newlywed couple, it would be much appreciated.
