Blessed be the name of the LORD!

One year ago today our beautiful Lyric Elise had open heart surgery to save her life... wow... God has been so faithful & His mercy is new everyday! As I look back over the past year I can only feel overwhelmed by God's goodness & grace! Lyric is truly the light of our lives... I don't have much to write, 1. I have never been good at expressing/sharing emotions & 2. My eyes keep filling up with tears... remembrance of this day one year ago, complete awe of what an AWESOME GOD we serve, & a heart that is so thankful it hurts! Thank you... to all of you that have brought us before the throne of God in prayer!
Thank you Lord for all that You have done and all that you are going to do in our little girls life!

Lyric Elise... you amaze me!

Little Light by Matt Hammitt & Audrey Assad

"Look at all the angels watching you
They're singing songs that we have never heard
And their voices ring like bells over the mountains
Oh, if only we could hear their words

God is near, little girl
God is near, little girl

Your eyes are brilliant, deep sky blue
Their quiet wisdom is an evening song
And the angels must be breathless at your beauty
Like the world catches its breath before the dawn

God is near, little one
God is near, little one

Jesus bends to hear you breathe
His tender hands are holding you tonight
His heart is ravished when you look at Him,
And oh, the endless mercy in His eyes

God is here, little light
God is here, little light."
