Love this song!

Although the acute crisis of Maia's illness is over, I still feel a bit as if we are in the storm - or perhaps just the aftermath. Whatever it is... this song is so personal to me right now. And since my playlist no longer works (copyright issues have forced the site to discontinue this service), I will share this video and music with you.

BTW - if anyone knows of a free playlist service, please email me. I don't know if there is another way to add music to the site, but may have to do some investigating.


  1. I appreciate the fact that you can feel free to talk on your blog about how you are feeling. Job didn't have a blog but we are blessed that his feelings are recorded for all time in the Holy Scriptures. My understanding is that Job was a living person in history; this is not a made-up story of "everyman". God didn't condemn Job for expressing his sorrow and confusion. In the end, God enlightened him in Who HE is and Job said "I had heard OF You by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye SEES you". His traumatic experiences were not wasted and he came to have a new revelation of God, something all of us need. In the end, he was given far more than he had lost and even the friends who had criticized him were rebuked by God and told that He would accept Job's prayer for THEM. (Take that for their arrogance!) This tells us that God has a purpose in allowing us to suffer things we don't understand but He always works things together for our good when we love Him & are the ones who are called to fulfill His purposes...clearly, you and Mark are called to His purpose of rearing these precious children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. Of course, it is a weighty task and of course there are trials associated with it, as the "enemy" isn't pleased with your being favored by God to perform this task.
    BTW, I love Jaquelene's suggestion to have some chocolate and go easy on yourself! (I am still out here in cyberspace, joining the others in prayer for all of you).

  2. I Love this song by Casting Crowns, it has carried me through my husbands life threatening illness in 2008 and his spinal cord injury in 2010. Their music lifts me up closer to God.
