Why do such awful things happen to the most wonderful people? And why do the great things happen to those who don't deserve it? My dear sweet friend gave birth to her twin boys on Monday morning at 23 weeks. She had an hour with Benson and Lincoln before they returned home to our Heavenly Father. She is so strong. I can't imagine what she is going through.

Haven't you always wondered why things like this happen? What is it that God is trying to teach us? In 5 years will we look back and understand why we had to go through so much turmoil, or will we always wonder, even when such trials have passed, why we had to experience such pain? I don't know why God does things the way he does. But I was once taught by an old friend, do not pray for things to go your way, pray that the Lord's will may also become your own, that you may better understand the things that occur in your life.

I have a good life. I have a wonderful husband, a nice home, a good job, and supportive family and friends. Things definitely don't always go my way. Some days it seems like things never go my way. But who is to say that my way is the right way. Maybe we all just need to get on our knees and ask our Father what it is that He wants us to do, be the instrument.


  1. Oh Abby so sorry to hear about your dear friend. I know you felt about it all. This makes my heart hurt hearing the outcome. Life really is all about faith in the lord isn't it.

  2. That is sooo sad! Mom told me what happened! I love what you wrote! Your right! Sometimes I get down and depressed when Tyler is gone and think why me?!?! But then I hear about something bad/sad about somebody else and I think "you know what... i can do this... it's not that bad! I am glad to have the problems I have! I hope your friend can get through this trial!
