I was listening to the radio in the car this morning, singing along at the top of my little lungs.
“Blessed be Your name
On the road marked with suffering
Though there’s pain in the offering
Blessed be Your name”
That part of the song always takes me back 7 years to Elijah’s battle with Leukemia. We were walking down that road. But this morning my thoughts were on Heather. She is being prepped for brain surgery as I type this. If you have not stopped by her blog, GO.READ.NOW. You will be challenged, strengthened, the hair will stand up on your arms as you read of her Faith that runs so deep.
As I was thinking of Heather, the song ended & we were reminded that today is the National Day of Prayer. My eyes filled with tears. How fitting that Heather’s surgery is scheduled today. Her tumor was discovered by an ear infection, she got an appointment in 2 days that should have taken 6-8 months to secure, and now she is having surgery on a day when the entire nation is taking a few moments to stop & at least acknowledge our God. He never ceases to AMAZE me!
