Angela, a friend of mine, posted this on Facebook yesterday:
“Had a young client today age 9 who has cancer, and I had to shave her head. She will get her wig from Locks of Love within 4 months. I have thought about her since she left. It makes you stop and thank God for a healthy child.”
It makes me stop and consider how consumed I can become with things that, at the end of the day, really aren’t so significant.
How even when one of my children are home sick with a cold, my life stops and centers on him or her.
How even in our weakness, He is still so very present, and so very strong.
Life really is.
Can we all just take a moment out of our day and pray for a little girl most of us have never met?
Father, we lift up this young girl to You. You know her name. You even know the number of hairs on her precious, little head. Touch her body. Heal her. Comfort her. Restore to her health. In Your Name that is above ALL Names.
