About four months ago, the Sonlight community joined my family in praying for my sister Jonelle and her newborn baby, Gracie Lou. For the next couple weeks you continued to pray and support us through the joys and the grief. (My dad documented those days on his blog.)

A few days after Baby Grace passed on, Jonelle said to me, "Luke, I don't think I can ever talk about this with anyone. It was such a public experience. I just want to be alone forever."

Well, not four months later, Jonelle has happily agreed to share what God has been doing:

Thank you again for your prayers and your part in this story.

    Where was that tissue warning, Luke? I'm so proud of Jonelle for sharing her heart in such a powerful way. Thank you again to your family for sharing Gracie Lou with us who couldn't be there in person to lift her before the throne.

    Jonelle, you have a gift. Please use it for God's glory. You are loved!

    Thank you Luke, that was beautiful. I loved her part about "sometimes 'why' is just to big a question to ask." I need to remember that! Thank you especially to Jonelle for taking the time and emotional energy to do that.
