Emma Grace Smith

Our dear friends, Craig and LaDonna Smith, have experienced one of lifes most difficult circumstances. Their newborn grand-daughter, born to their son Dallas and his wife Elizabeth, enter the arms of Jesus on 8.02.2007. She lived only a few weeks, but she was immensely loved during her earthly presence. Dallas put together a short video of Emma Grace that captures her beauty and sweetness in a way I will never forget. How great is the Lord and His ways; far above what we can imagine. I'm looking forward to meeting Emma Grace someday in heaven...it really won't be long. Life is a vapor and each moment a gift.

"And he said, My presence shall go with thee,
and I will give thee rest."
Ex. 33:14

We will definitely have them in our prayers; a good friend of mine had a family member go through a similar situation recently. We'll be praying that God will just surround them with His love.
