Happy Birthday, Cora Paige!

Today would have been Cora's first birthday. She is spending it in heaven, her parents are spending it at a gravesite. I don't understand how the Lord works, and although there have been many God-breathed occurences throughout this journey for the McClenahans, I still don't totally get it. Perhaps we're not supposed to totally "get" these things, but instead have faith and hope in His perfect plan. How I ache for them though.

Today, the family had plans to visit Cora's gravesite and release pink balloons for her. All over the place, other families were going to do the same. Camille and I had talked about doing this sometime today - and can I just brag on my girl for a minute? When she finished up at the dentist and they offered her a balloon, she told the assistant about Cora and asked for a pink balloon. Of course, the gal gave her two - one for Camille & one for Cora. We knelt and prayed right outside the dentist's office and sent a balloon up to Heaven for Cora. Camille seems to think that God is going to catch it for her :)
