saddened by the death of 11 year old, Ben Clough.
Ben was diagnosed with AML in 2009.
I received a txt, while I was in Honduras, from my
youngest daughter, Kylee, asking our group to pray for Ben.
He had relapsed for the 3rd time.
They were told there wasn't
anything else medically that could be done.
We have prayed, since Ben was
first diagnosed, for an earthly healing.
God had other plans.
Ben received eternal healing Sunday night.
Our hearts are broken.
We ask why.
But, we have to trust God.
We have to trust His plan.
Even when we don't understand.
Even when His plan is not our plan.
We have to trust.
Ben's service is tomorrow night.
Please, pray for Ben's family.
I cannot even begin to
imagine the pain they are experiencing.
Pray for Ben's friends.
As adults, we don't understand this tragedy;
how can we expect our kids to understand?
Ben loved all things University of Alabama.
More than Bama, he loved Jesus.
He was very passionate in telling others about Him.
I can't imagine the look on Ben's face
when he saw our Father for the 1st time.
Here is the link for Ben's Caringbridge site.
Take a few minutes and read about this
amazing 11 year-old and his journey with this disease.
Ben's Mother wrote the following words in
her caringbridge journal the night Ben died...
"At 9:15 p.m. June 5, 2011 Benjamin Todd Clough, Jr.
walked into the arms of our Risen Savior Jesus Christ.
Praise God and rest in peace our son.
Do not see him as a victim of cancer,
for he is a VICTOR against this world."
Ben is indeed a VICTOR, not a victim.
No, in all these things we are more
than conquerors through him who loved us.
Love you MUCH!
