team smith 2012

 A couple weekends ago, I, along with Kori and Jon's friends and family, participated in the 5-mile walk for March of Dimes.  This is the 2nd year we have marched in honor of Smith's life, but this year, Kori was pushing his healthy 1-year old baby brother along the route.  Things looked quite a bit different last year, as Kori was in the hospital having been on bed-rest for 2 months.  What a difference a year makes.

Once again, I was reminded of God's faithfulness and the overwhelming truth that He always has us, that He will never leave us or forsake us.  Gray's life is such a miracle, and that was never so apparent to me as when we were walking. was Smith's.  Even though he lived only a matter of days on this earth, his short life had a profound impact that reached far beyond the hospital that he never left.  His life was not in vain and had instrinsic purpose.  I praise God that I was able to be a witness during those days and I praise Him for the privilege to see the overwhelming joy of my dear friend Kori as she is such a beautiful mama with Gray - "though the sorrow may last for the night, His joy comes in the morning."
