|Me, Linda, Allie, Dan, Josh, & Nicole|
This morning I read Psalm 124. And thought of this.
In the fall of 1985 our son David was stillborn.
His twin brother Joshua followed him into the world prematurely, with multiple problems.
Linda and I did not know if Josh would make it.
It happened at the Mid-Michigan Neonatal Center at Sparrow Hospital, in Lansing.
I remember standing with Linda, after the loss of David, looking through a window at the isolette where Josh, connected with tubes and monitors, was fighting for his life. Looking upon the struggle of life and death, Linda and I agreed, that day, that if we did not have God in our lives, we would sink to the ocean floor. I thought, I would be an alcoholic.
This story never leaves me. It visited me again, now, as I opened my Bible and read Psalm 124.
If the Lord had not been on our side—
if the Lord had not been on our side
