"And every day in pain,I wait
I can't help but wonder why
You promise me your love and say goodbye
Please don't say goodbye!"
Bryan Duncan ~ I'll Not Forget You
I wanted to post a video of this song today, but couldn't find one.
We heard it on the radio on the way to Jiu Jitsu this afternoon, and immediately liked it...first of all because it references Abraham and Sarah and there wait for God's promise of a child. (We recently studied that in History, so the twins were surprised to hear a song about it.)
Secondly, because I love the chorus...
"I'll not forget you...when you walk alone, when you break inside, when a loved one dies, when your youth is gone, in an empty home, when you health is gone."
God promises to be by our side.
He doesn't break His promises.
He doesn't leave us.
We never walk alone.
I would like to ask you to pray for a friend. I don't know her very well, having only met her a few times while preparing for Seth's fundraiser in July. In fact, she basically organized the entire thing. Anyway, Dana is about 30 weeks pregnant with a baby girl...and recently found out that she has some sort of mass on her cervix. The preliminary reports from looking at cells under a microscope were not good. She had a biopsy today. The doctors have told her that she's probably going to need a complete hysterectomy, but they haven't decided if that needs to happen after she delivers a healthy, full-term baby or NOW. As in, go ahead and take the baby right away. What a position for a young mom to be in. She certainly needs our prayers! As soon as I know more, I will update on her situation.
Also...speaking of Seth, the little boys for whom the funds were being raised...
Well it seems that they've finally been able to set a date for Seth's SURGERY!!
He and his family will be traveling to St. Louis in late October. The procedure is scheduled to be done on October 26! And then...then that little fellow will need our prayers more than ever as he learns to use his legs without relying on spasticity.
And possibly, hopefully, WALK for the first time in his four years!
Lots of stuff has been going on around here that could use prayer as well. Not with the Source household, we're all fine and dandy thank you very much. But other family members and friends are experiencing tough times lately.
God knows who they are, so I'm not going to share names.
What's going on with you?
