In the span of a single day, an Argentinian woman received the two biggest shocks of her life. First she heard the heartbreaking news that her newborn baby was stillborn. Devastation. Later that day she discovered in the morgue that her baby girl was actually still alive.
The infant, named, Luz Milagros, or “Miracle Light,” was pronounced a stillborn on April 3rd, 2012. Twelve hours after she “died,” her parents went down to the morgue to uncover the baby’s body in its coffin. They wanted a picture for the funeral.
As he opened the box, the baby let out a sudden cry and the mother fell to her knees in shock. She said in a TeleNoticias interview: "That's where I heard a tiny little cry. I told myself I was imagining it—it was my imagination. And then I stepped back and saw her waking up. It was as if she was saying 'Mama, you came for me!' That was when I fell to my knees. My husband didn't know what to do. We were just crying and I laughed and cried, cries and laughter. We must have seemed crazy. I'm a believer. All of this was a miracle from God''
There was a miracle in the morgue that day! The little one that they thought was dead now is very much alive!
This morning I want to take you to another family whose baby had brought them laughter. In fact, his name, Isaac, meant “laughter.” As we will see, that laughter was silenced for a time when it seemed that Isaac, now a vibrant young man, was as good as dead. But God in His mercy spared Isaac’s life and, in so doing, pointed beyond that boy to another beloved Son who would die, yet live again. It’s all a part of “the big story” of God’s redeeming love.
