This has been quite a day. I conducted the funeral of a 2 1/2 month baby girl, Rogan, and then this afternoon we went to the airport to meet our dear friends, Bart and Kim Gilbert, as they arrived from Haiti with their new 1 1/2 year old daughter Katiana. What an emotion day!

The service was good and Chris and Megan are just an amazing young couple. They were so open with their grief and love for their little baby daughter. I was so glad the sun was shining and the sky was blue at the cemetery. I can’t even begin to imagine what it must feel like to let your little baby go. Only God’s strength and grace can give you what you need at a time like that.

I am so excited for Kim and Bart. They have waited so long to be parents and it was so neat to be at the airport with others from our staff. I was thinking today of Kim’s mom, Donella, who was watching from Heaven. Katiana is named after her grandmother, Katiana Donella Gilbert, that is so awesome. She is so little and so cute…a whole new journey for the Gilbert family begins. God is good! All the time!
