The world keeps turning

How is it that even though I feel like our world has come to a standstill, it keeps humming along at its normal pace as if nothing is wrong? How can we still be driving places, buying things, going to soccer and gymnastics, planning the next WOW(Worship on Wednesday for kids) activity, cooking dinner or ordering pizza because both babies are crying or one is balled up in pain, grocery shopping, doing homework, taking tests online, getting donations for the school festival, working, doing charity work, worshipping the God who knows our pain intimately and sees each tear but seems silent, watching another baby flourish, and continue to do all the other things everyone does every day while our sweet angel is suffering so? I feel like I am standing on a busy sidewalk and the world around me is going by so fast it's just a blur.

  3. Dunnam Family,
    I have never posted before but am also close to and sadly part of this Batten family. I check in periodically to see how your sweet Emma is doing. I am always praying for her, for sweet Taylor, and for all of our sweet angels here on earth battling this disease that must be stopped. I will triple my prayers for Emma from as far away as Chicago.
    Love from a stranger, Callie

  4. Christy,
    I'm praying for Emma and coveting the prayers of other prayer warriors to pray for her as well. We are also praying over you and your family..I wish I could make your heart stop hurting..knowing our God is still in the miracle working business and standing with you in faith that He has one for sweet Emma! Love, Tedra
