I Do Not Understand

“As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things.” Ecclesiastes 11:5

I do not understand and I know I never will.

How can such an amazing woman fight for so long and hard for her son's life and then her own, yet still die?

Tonight, Missy's battle with cancer ended and she is now with the Lord.

Just this evening I had the following conversation with Broderick during bedtime prayers....he was praying "God, please help Missy and Ryan feel better". I explained to him that Missy and Ryan would probably not feel better until they get to heaven. And he responded with "why aren't the scientists working harder to find a cure so they can be better here?" I wish I had an answer for him.

I am at peace knowing that Missy is finally pain free and know I that I am blessed that the Lord brought her and her beautiful son into my life. She touched so many lives and is the strongest woman I know.

Please pray for the Morgan family as they go through the tough days ahead as well as continuing to pray for Ryan as he continues his battle and mourns the loss of the most amazing mother a little boy could ever have.


  1. I learned of Missy and Ryan's blog through yours and my life has been touched in many ways since then. My heart hurts for their loss but at the same time rejoices that she is no longer in pain. Our loss is a significant gain for Missy now that she is in her Father's arms. Thank you for silently leading me to their site so that I could pray along with others and be a part of the journey as they modeled God's love along the way.

  2. Oh heartbreak. I'm so sorry for the loss of your friend and pray for healing for that family.

  3. Oh, I am so sorry. I am not familiar with their blog. Would you kindly post that again so I can follow their journey. Regardless, I will put them in my prayers. So sorry......

  4. Ok.....maybe if I would have looked a bit further I would have seen your list!!!! Got it, Shannon. Sorry about that!

  5. My heart hurts for the family and the loss they have endured. Having recently lost my own mother, I know the pain that comes with losing such a central family figure. Although I am not familiar with the family, I will keep them in my thoughts and prayers.
