chained to your bedside-

To clarify-  I did not write this "poem,"
this is the lyrics to the song posted below...which is appropriate but not our story- can just relate really to it. 
now is the time to have faith- 
we walk not by sight, but by faith.
If you lose Hope now, if you lose faith now, if you start resolving now..your faith is false.
Jesus said, when I return will I find FAITH?
Ask God to change your hearts, to change your doubt and unbelief into living faith!

 Lou's Song 
by Micah Lother
Stay for a while
I've got nothing else to lose but you
I know you're in pain
But I'm begging you to hold on tight
Tell me I'll be alright

No matter where you go
I will keep you safe
Don't ever be afraid
The stars are shining bright
Through cold and endless nights
I will always always be with you

Chained to your bedside
but I never wanna be set free
Somehow I see more life in you
yet I'm the one without a disease
Oh please show me that I'll be alright

No matter where you go
I will keep you safe
Don't ever be afraid
The stars are shining bright
Through cold and endless nights
I will always always be with you

Always be
Will always be
Be with you
Always always be with you

No matter where you go
I will keep you safe
Don't ever be afraid
The stars are shining bright
Through cold and endless nights
I will always always be with you

psalms 40
I waited patiently for the Lord to help me,
    and he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the pit of despair,
    out of the mud and the mire.
He set my feet on solid ground
    and steadied me as I walked along.
He has given me a new song to sing,
    a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see what he has done and be amazed.
    They will put their trust in the Lord.
Oh, the joys of those who trust the Lord,
    who have no confidence in the proud
    or in those who worship idols.
O Lord my God, you have performed many wonders for us.
    Your plans for us are too numerous to list.
    You have no equal.
If I tried to recite all your wonderful deeds,
    I would never come to the end of them.
You take no delight in sacrifices or offerings.
    Now that you have made me listen, I finally understand[a]
    you don’t require burnt offerings or sin offerings.
Then I said, “Look, I have come.
    As is written about me in the Scriptures:
I take joy in doing your will, my God,
    for your instructions are written on my heart.”
I have told all your people about your justice.
    I have not been afraid to speak out,
    as you, O Lord, well know.
10 I have not kept the good news of your justice hidden in my heart;
    I have talked about your faithfulness and saving power.
I have told everyone in the great assembly
    of your unfailing love and faithfulness.
11 Lord, don’t hold back your tender mercies from me.
    Let your unfailing love and faithfulness always protect me.
12 For troubles surround me—
    too many to count!
My sins pile up so high
    I can’t see my way out.
They outnumber the hairs on my head.
    I have lost all courage.
13 Please, Lord, rescue me!
    Come quickly, Lord, and help me.
14 May those who try to destroy me
    be humiliated and put to shame.
May those who take delight in my trouble
    be turned back in disgrace.
15 Let them be horrified by their shame,
    for they said, “Aha! We’ve got him now!”
16 But may all who search for you
    be filled with joy and gladness in you.
May those who love your salvation
    repeatedly shout, “The Lord is great!”
17 As for me, since I am poor and needy,
    let the Lord keep me in his thoughts.
You are my helper and my savior.
    O my God, do not delay.

    We pray for your whole family every day. I know our Heavenly Father hears all we pray to him. I know he has a plan for each and every one of us. I ask our Lord heal Cali in only the way he can. We love you very much.

  4. Lucy, I am worried by this post. How is Calli? Can I please bring lunch over to all of you this week? Love you guys.

  5. Thinking...praying...hoping...loving all of you. ~Liz & Jon

  6. As always I am consumed with concern. I will not waiver that everything will be fine. I will not stop praying! I will not stop giving up on HOPE! I will not give in to the ways of the world. I will TRUST IN THE LORD! For he is my guide.

  7. Oh Lord hear our cries! The WORLD is literally praying for Calli. I know you hear us. Suffer the little children to come unto Jesus? Jesus we need you to come unto Calli. Walk into her room. Lift her up. You did it 2000 years ago for anybody that asked and believed - do it now! You have done it for me.. do it for CALLI. Our mere minds don't understand the plans of God. Show us your Glory. Show this wicked world YOUR Strength in OUR weakness. Hear our cries!!! You answered the groanings of the Hebrews when they were enslaved by the Egyptians. Calli is enslaved by this sick body. Calli you are strong indeed. Words will never be enough. Lord hear our cries! Catch our tears. Jesus, I know that you comfort Calli in her darkest moments. Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of Death you are there with me. For that we are all eternally grateful. LORD HEAR OUR CRIES!

  8. Please tell Aidan I was so glad to see him playing guitar at Franconia church on Sunday. I am grateful he is willing to be used by God to lead others in worship.

  9. I know the love of a mother. I see it in your eyes when I look at the pictures of you and Cali. You're story is touching and a witness to so many. I will continue to pray for Cali and your entire family.

  10. Your family has never slipped away from my thoughts and prayers- I continue to pray for all of you daily. I am sending lots of love your way and a big hug from Greg and I.
