Selah - Please Pause to Pray

I know many of you, like I do, love the group Selah. Their music has ministered to me many, many times.

Today my heart is heavy for their lead singer, Todd Smith, and his sweet family. I discovered through one of the later comments from my Then Sings My Soul Saturday post, that his wife, Angie, delivered their 4th daughter this past Monday, April 7, and they had two precious hours with sweet Audrey Caroline before she went to be with Jesus.

They have known since January that, barring a divine miracle, this would be the outcome. They weren't certain they would have any time with her, and so those two hours were a blessing.

I encourage you to visit Angie's blog to read more about their journey, including Angie's precious letter to Audrey written after her birth. You will be richly blessed. God has provided peace beyond understanding in the midst of this unfathomable heartache.

While you are there, be sure to read her March 11 post. It has Todd's wonderful rendition of I Surrender All, which will be on Selah's new CD to be released this fall. But, as she says in the post just before that one: "And a note to all you rowdy Selah fans who are thinking of downloading it....just remember that Jesus is watching you."

And please take a moment to lift them up in prayer.

Thank you for posting about this. I had not heard about it. Tears just streamed down my face as I read the tender letter to her baby. I can't imagine.

Thank you for posting this and the link. To say I'm a Selah fan would be a huge understatement. I am so sorry to hear about this loss.
