Most of us have what can be called domino effects after the death of our child. Just like when the first domino in a line of dominos falls and causes others to fall, the death of our child can cause unexpected and painful chain reactions.
In this episode, Laura shares one of those personal chain reactions, and prays over other parents who are facing the painful situations of a domino effect after the death of their child.
Today’s podcast episode is sponsored by Wong Liang Fu and Kay Ho in memory of their son, David Wong Hong Ming. When Kay gets flashbacks of the different scenes at the hospital – all the episodes her son, David, had to go through – her heart breaks to a million pieces. But David’s father, Liang Fu reminds her that those scenes are her battlefield. Kay says, “As avid fans of Lord of the Rings and the Chronicles of Narnia, we are familiar with what battle scenes are like. They are certainly not a walk in the park. And yet the fighters fought valiantly on, trusting their Lord. That thought settles my heart. David, we love and miss you so much.”
Thank you Liang Fu and Kay for sharing David with us, and for blessing us at GPS Hope for sponsoring this episode.
