“Your daughter has a Wilms tumor”
And your heart sinks
You grab her sleeping body in your arms and as you rock,
You capture the way that she breathes and the way that she blinks
And you are overwhelmed
And then God came down
Through sisters and brothers just like you
Courage comes and fear seems to drown
And you know that you can face this day
And you can face the next day
And you walk on stones of faith and hope and love
And at Jesus’ feet, overwhelm is laid.

    I really love your website.. Excellent colors & theme.

    Did you develop this site yourself? Please reply back as I'm looking to create my own personal blog and would love
    to learn where you got this from or just what the theme is named.
