A Gift from Missey Gray
I just learned from Heather Ivester's blog about Missey Gray's untimely death giving birth to her fifth child. (You can read more about her passing here.) I'm stunned and humbled, and I'm reminded that life is fragile. God has gifted me with six children, but it's so easy to take childbirth and so many other things for granted.
It really struck me as I read Missey's blog posted March 1st just hours before she passed. One minute she was with us, and the next minute she was gone. How I feel for her husband Tom and their children, and how much more I realize I can't take anything in my life for granted. Life is too precious. People are too precious.
Thank you, Missey, for reminding me just when I needed it. How I pray God will use you to remind others, too.
