Sweet Jacob Marlowe


Jacob Marlowe passed away this morning in his sleep. Please pray for our friends Joylynn and Joel as they go through this extremely difficult time. Richard and I also need strength and wisdom to help them through this process. Joy had Jacob at 32 weeks gestation. He had just reached his 6 week mark and was doing very well. Joel and Joy just received the hospital bills from his NICU stay last week. Please pray for them and that situation as well. Jacob's blog is listed on ours, so please take a look and let the Marlowes know that they are supported by a strong christian network. It has really helped Richard and I cope through this time, so we know it will help them too.

  7. Jennifer I found this poem that maybe both of you could use now. I hope it helps.

    We little knew that morning, that God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone For part of us went with you, the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide; And though we can not see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.

  15. I pray that you will sense the Lord's nearness today. I love to look at pictures of your sweet Lilly and now baby Jacob. They are both so beautiful. I keep thinking about heaven, and how we will all be together with Jesus in a little while.

  16. You don't know me, I don't even know how I came across your blog one night, must have been God's doing. I was going to write this on Friday but decided not to.

    You are an amazing woman, a true inspiration to others. I fill God has called you to lead others during their trials and heartbreaks. I pray that you find strength and peace in your heart like you've never known before.

    I never thought God would call you this soon though. I'm praying for your family and your friend's family.
