A Terrible Day

Our Hail Mary Pass failed miserably.
It's a No-Go for bringing Miles home tomorrow,
or any day this week,
for that matter.

And this morning my favorite uncle,
my Uncle Gary,
passed away unexpectedly.
He was only in his 50's.

I just cannot understand any of this.

When I hit the lowest point in our adoption of Ronaldo and Julia, I would pray out loud Psalm 91. I would cry those words out to God until I believed them in my heart. Some nights it was all night long.

And please know that when you are too broken and angry to pray, that we are out here bringing you before the Throne.

I'm so sorry Sarah. So very sorry.

Psalm 91

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress,my God, in whom I trust."

Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence.

He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,nor the plague that destroys at midday.

A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.

You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.

If you make the Most High your dwelling—even the LORD, who is my refuge-then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.

For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

You will tread upon the lion and the cobrayou will trample the great lion and the serpent.

"Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him;I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

He will call upon me, and I will answer him;I will be with him in trouble,I will deliver him and honor him.

With long life will I satisfy him
and show him my salvation."

I am so incredibly sorry for the loss of your uncle and for the endless heartbreak in this adoption that has stood in the way of your sons coming home. God IS still there. He WON'T leave....and I'm still praying that He will bring peace and good news to you amidst the darkness.

geralyn said...

I am so, so, sorry to hear this sad news. I know that no words will offer comfort right now, so all I will say is that my thoughts and prayers are with you and I am always available to lend an ear.

Amy said...

Sorry for the loss of your uncle. Also sorry for the adoption junk. I understand that painfully well. We still don't have a passport today. It's so hard to understand. Hang in there.

Laurie said...

Hugs I'm so sorry.

Tracy said...

I am so sorry to say I just don't get it either. A loving family...waiting to give a little boy a home?? Why do they make it so difficult??? I just don't get it. So sorry for your loss...

Me said...

I wish I had some words of wisdom or comfort but I don't. Like everyone else, I am so very sorry and you continue to be in my prayers. When I talked with M yesterday she was hopeful it won't be long for your little one. Love you!
