When It All Comes Down To It

Yesterday, a friend of my sister Lucy said goodbye forever
 to her two-year-old baby in a hospital, and my heart feels broken for them.
I haven't stopped mugging on Lottie since I heard the news.

I wish I could take away this family's pain and sadness.  
I wish I could buoy up and heal aching hearts.
I wish I could make everything all better. Right. NOW.
In reality, I simply can't do any of those things.
But I know and am confident that Christ can do all those things.
I take great comfort in that promise and wish 
I could share that knowledge with everyone.
So, hey everyone:
Christ lives, and because of His death and Resurrection, our pain,
sadness, bitterness, loneliness, death, tragedy, and grief can be swallowed up.
Because of Christ, there is no end.
 Because we have a Savior, we can look ahead with peace and hope.

When it comes down to it, all I really want in this life is for my children
to know that they have a loving Heavenly Father who knows them intimately and
 a Savior who gave His life for them so they could be happy and find success in life.

That knowledge has literally saved me on my darkest, saddest, ugliest,
most desperate days, and it can save you too.
