Jesus Loves Me

Thank you for your continued prayer through this very trying time of treatment. We are doing everything in our power to try to make James comfortable. I was rocking him yesterday and singing Jesus loves me. We sing that song all the time to him and since he has been diagnosed it has taken on a new meaning. I can hardly get through the words now without crying.

Jesus loves me this I know
For the Bible tell me so
Little ones to Him belong
They are weak but He is strong

Yes Jesus loves me
Yes Jesus loves me
Yes Jesus loves me
The Bible tells me so

The song has a two fold meaning to me. Greg and I feel very weak right now in knowing how to best care for our son. James is weak right now due to all the things that they are putting in his body. Praise God that when we are weak-He is strong. God has shown Himself strong to us throughout this journey and He has shown Himself strong in James.

We are in the midst of Day 11. We covet your prayers and know we will get through this. We love you.

Day 11 means there are less days to go than days behind you. Hooray.

Isn't it wonderful when the simplest song says so much? Have you had time to read your Praying God's Word devo? It has been most appropriate in the last week.

It's a great day to be stuck inside. Love and prayers....
