I wanted to share a prayer that K.F., a brother in Christ, e-mailed to me. I was so touched by this prayer. And challenged. K. poses some of the same questions that I have been wrestling with since Saturday.
"It is my personal prayer for Lilly and the whole family that our loving Father will heal that beautiful little soul. May His wonderful love and peace rain down on all of you. I thank Him for her because she reminds us believers of that question we should CONSTANTLY ask ourselves: what REALLY matters? Lilly is a gift from God to all us believers if we stop long enough to pay attention. Why? Because she is telling us the answer to that most important question with her life. Love God. Love neighbor. Love in a cross-shaped Jesus-centered way. This is the law and the prophets. What else matters?"
Lilly is having a good morning. Her temperature is normal. She had a big "blow-out" and needed a birdbath to get her cleaned up properly. The best part was she cried and fussed during it. Finally! She had the strength to let her fussing be heard. I held her for awhile to calm her and she fell back asleep. They are continuing to cut her oxygen back. Lilly will have another echo later this morning. I can't wait to find out what that shows.
