the doll's choir


Tonight, I'm asking the Lord to forgive me for taking for granted the greatest blessing any of us could have, our health.  This was brought home to me today with a request of cards to dear Hannah, a young girl who is dying of a very rare cancer. I held my sons a bit closer, thankful for the every wonderful and annoying thing about them! And for their wisdom, Andy saying, 'Mom, she's going back home' in his mind, HEAVEN. If you would like to read about Hannah and her request. please check this out. I think those baby dolls are singing the way, though there is always hope for a miracle...I don't think she'll be lonely.

I am also thankful for feeling fully the emotions of righteous anger, sadness, and hope...dear Lord be a healing balm no matter what.

I've sent a card to Hannah as well - I'm seeing the notice about her everywhere - how tragic and what a brave wonderful little girl - How sad that we have to hear sadness like this to remember to be thankful. God's grace is certainly with little Hannah and us as well.

This is a beautiful card for dear Hannah to add to her collection that I'm sure will be flooding her room this Christmas!

I like to believe that God gives us angels like Hannah to remind us of His Grace, His many gifts to us, and His omnipresence. When things like this happen, we focus on Him, and He blesses the ones He's used to accomplish that. Thanks for sharing about Hannah. I will get a card out to her today!

What a sweet card, Susan and thanks for the link. We lost my niece to heart disease several years ago and it always hits home when I hear of another child who is suffering. God will bless her and make her safe!!

I wipe a tear as I read your post... what a sweet and heartfelt card for Hannah. I've read of so much sickness and sadness recently; however, I am always so moved at the outpouring of prayers and love. I am truly blessed to know people such as yourself!! Hannah and her family are in my prayers.
hugs, Jami
