A beautiful lady named Angie Smith...

So I went to Lifeway last night and bought Angie Smith's book, "I Will Carry You".

It's a book about her fourth daughter, Audrey Caroline who only lived here on earth for a little over two hours.

I got home about 9:00-9:30, and read until 12:00 or so. I'm about 1/2-3/4 of the way done with this book.

God has given Angie a gift, writing. Her words are absolutely beautiful, and so was her precious daughter.

I smiled while reading...and I also cried. A lot. Looking at the pictures that she had printed within the pages, it was absolutely heartbreaking.
Reading words that were so similar to my own, and hearing the innocence of things her sweet girls had to say about their feelings.

Her husband may be "famous" (Todd, lead singer of Selah). But they are "normal" just like us. Angie and Todd went through the things that many of us have had to face.

Sweet little Audrey has changed so many lives, touched them. And let me just say that Audrey and her Mommy have touched my heart. :)
