Heartbreakingly beautiful, old friend.

We've never met. I'm a friend of Mel, Kate and Jes.

My heart has been so heavy since I heard what happened. You and your family are in my prayers and I ache for you all.

You're not alone, my church (Redwood United Methodist) in my hometown in Virginia is also praying for you.
We're praying hard for Kari’s kidneys, praying for comfort, praying for peace, praying for baby Stella, and her now angel sister, sweet Margot June. We are with you.

there seems to be nothing a written or spoken word could possibly do to offer even the slightest comfort to your broken hearts, but please know that while you may not be absent from this overwhelming weight of grief, you and your precious. strong. beautiful family are not alone in it either. our hearts and minds carry you and yours in the strongest of thoughts and most heartfelt of prayers moment to moment. may there be some peace. some comfort. something. for you all.

You don't know me but I know your wife and stella. I met her at a moms group. I was reading your post I I could never imagine the way your heart is aching. You and your family are in my prayers. Your words you wrote are real and true and and only time and love can heal. I am sorry for your tragic loss.

I don't know you but I go to your father-in-law's church. My family heard about your heartbreak and we were instantly moved to tears. My heart breaks for you and Kari. I have been and will continue to pray for Kari's recovery and for God to hold you in his loving embrace while you are going through this incredibly trying time. You and your family are continuously in my thoughts and prayers.

We have never met. Probably never will. John and Patty are our brave leaders in the QC, and our church has been lifting you and your precious families up in prayer constantly this past week. I have read your blogs. I wept until my head ached at the pictures. I think of you guys all day long and into the night. I am so terribly sorry, and I am bearing what weight of this God will give me the privilege of bearing. I can not tell you how mind boggling this is, how you are both still standing... Continuing to lift all of you in prayer to the One who can bring the healing that you need. May you have relief, peace, comfort... anything. I'm so sorry.

There aren't words...yet still I try to find them.
What you have communicated in this blog and you other postings is stunning and powerful, Josh.
I am praying for God's healing for Kari's kidneys and for your hearts, and for His peace that passes our understanding to cover you all.

Heather said...

Wow Josh, I am stunned. That is breathtaking.

As stated in so many other posts...you don't know me... I was blessed to be a part of Heritage Church and have Patty as my teacher until moving to Decatur. I am part of a large church here and everyone from the pastors and elders down to the ladies in the kitchen and small groups have been lifting you all up in prayer.
You have the gift of using words so powerfully to express your feelings. I do not. All I can say is please, please, please remember that even during your lowest, darkest moments, when it seems you are all alone, you are not. There are thousands of people right there beside you in spirit...crying with you for your loss, rejoicing with you for each tiny improvement Kari makes, and praying continuously for her complete recovery. I pray this will give you even the smallest amount of comfort to help get you through this most difficult time.

Your writing tells the story when the pain of speaking is too great. Your family is on the prayer list of my church in NJ. Suspect what is going on with your wife is a more severe version of what I had in 1980. My daughter survived, but only because we ere in the hospital. You are not alone, even when it feels that way.
