A verse and song lyrics that have blessed me tody:

Zephaniah 3:17 - "The LORD your God is with you. He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you. He will quiet you with His love. He will rejoice over you with singing!"

How amazing are the truths of that verse? He is WITH me, He DELIGHTS in me, and He REJOICES over me - ME! - with singing! Awesome. Awesome.

And the lyrics of a Sarah Groves song:

“Prayers for This Child”

I do not know how I am to pray for this child
as a mother I don’t want my baby denied
but in the waiting in the waiting
I learned

Every instinct in me wants to shield him from pain
take the arrows of misery heartache and blame
but in the sorrow in the sorrow
I learned to hold on

I only have two eyes - be all seeing
I only have two hands - be everywhere
I do not know enough - to be all knowing
I give this baby up into your care

I do not know how, how to pray for this child
I want to guard him from everything wicked and wild
but in the trial in the trial
I learned to hold on
And in the trial, in the trial
I learned to hold on to the heart of God

Hold your babies tightly this afternoon-

Ms. Amy, Sometimes I wish my boys were still at the cuddly stage. Patrick is such a man now and has his own world...even though he still lives in mine. Phil Rollins is back in SC and Pat has been spending a lot of time with him. DJ is soooooooo busy at the camp in NC. I get a one-liner e-mail now and again, but it just isn't the same as hearing his voice and getting those great hugs of his! Funny..he drives me crazy when he is home cuz he wants to be busy ALL the time, but I miss him like crazy when he is gone. --Brenda
