We Had To Say Goodbye

Once again I have been absent for a week.  And once again it was for my little sweet niece.  I am afraid to say that this will be the last time.  Last Friday we lost our little Grace.  She just couldn’t fight any longer.  So, Wednesday we said goodbye to her. 

The short little life that she lived, 144 days, was not in anyway a mistake or a waste.  Everyday that she lived, she and her family through this experience, were changing people’s lives.  You would not believe the number of Doctors and Nurses that attended her funeral.  Doctors and Nurses have to see death on a regular basis, but I don’t think they experience life in the way that God used it in Gracie’s days on this earth. 

God made sure to leave His fingerprints all over the place in her life.  One that was mentioned at the funeral, by the Pastor was that My sister-in-law would receive a new parking pass every month and the day before Grace died the parking attendant pointed out that the parking pass was to expire the very next day, on the day of her death.  Immediately my sister-in-law remembered the verse about our days being numbered. 

I want to thank all of you and everyone at our church for all of your prayers.  They weren’t answered the way that we would have chosen but they were heard and God used every moment of Gracie’s life and death for His glory. 
We love you Gracie girl!!
