Once again I come to you, my blogging friends, and ask that you pray. Yes, I still need your prayers but a dear friend of mine, Kendra, is right now sitting next to her seven week old baby in the PICU at a local children's hospital. He is in critical condition and the Doctors are doing multiple tests to figure out what is going on.
I am headed down to the hospital with Lisa, Kendra's best friend, to be there as a support. Please pray that the Lord will calm my heart and give me wise words to give to my friend. I am incredibly emotional right now(go figure) and need to "pull it together" for her sake.
For updates on the baby's progress please go to Kendra's blog.
You might have noticed that the song over on the side bar has been playing for quite some time. The words are so appropriate to what is going on in my life but now I pass those same words onto my dear sister in Christ as she walks through her dark valley.
God, my God, I cry out
Your beloved needs You now
God, be near, calm my fear
And take my doubt
Your kindness is what pulls me up
Your love is all that draws me in
I will lift my eyes to the Maker
Of the mountains I can't climb
I will lift my eyes to the Calmer
Of the oceans raging wild
I will lift my eyes to the Healer
Of the hurt I hold inside
I will lift my eyes, lift my eyes to You
God, my God, let Mercy sing
Her melody over me
God, right here all I bring
Is all of me
Because You are and You were and You will be forever
The Lover I need to save me
Because You fashioned the earth and You hold it together, God
So hold me now.
