May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Crying out Today

The last few days these words have hung heavily on my heart.

"My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?" Matthew 27:46 & Mark 15:34. Apparently, this is the only phrase that appears in more than one Gospel and they are referred to as the "Word of Abandonment". It is striking that those words were spoken by Jesus, God's own son, during perhaps his darkest hour on this earth. Jesus, our Saviour, cried out these words to his Father.

There is faith and there is pain and sadness and hurt. Those words give me comfort today as my heart cries them out.


  1. Praying for you. You and your family will be in my thoughts, especially tomorrow.

  2. Mandy I'm so sorry for what you're going through.. I found your blog yesterday and have read every single post.. My heart breaks for you :(

  3. you are in my thoughts and prayers.

  4. Mandy, I have been praying for you today and have had others praying too. I pray that God gives you the strength you need. I was praying for a miracle!!! I will keep uplifting your family in prayer.
    Love in Christ,

  5. Thinking of you and praying that tomorrow you will find the strength th greet you little one and cherish every moment.

  6. Thinking of you today and hoping you get to hear that little cry and see those beautiful eyes.

  7. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers today as you welcome your second angel. I hope you have a beautiful experience and your time with him or her is peaceful.
