I've been sick to death these past few days. Today (Saturday) I feel a surge of healing. I can actually get up and move about. I even went to my daughter's ballet. I'm grateful. I really did not want to disappoint her, so it's a blessing that I feel renewed. I hope it will stay true. The feeling of being ill is mean.
Through this time, I wished for help and was comforted by my mother's phone calls even though she is across the ocean.
We were praying for each other as, she too was also ill. We are both on the mend, I hope.
Then pushing away from myself to help with the kids. I was simply down and out. My husband I think, finally recognized that I was ill. It is not like me to be asleep, laying down. I'm always up, loud, alive and going. He pitched in to help and I was so grateful.
And the precious words from my babies. Healing to the heart.
So I share:

“Words,” which features vocals by Bart Millard (MercyMe), is a response to “Made”—a building song, layered with fast-tempo strings, that speaks boldly to the listener during the chorus: You’re beautiful, wonderful, perfectly made. “The idea behind that song,” says Steingard, “is that when something is made instead of just happening, everything
about it is on purpose and intentional. If we didn’t just happen, if we were created by someone who loves us and cares about us and has a purpose for our lives, then when we look in the mirror, we should be satisfied with what we see.”
So “Made” tells us we are on purpose, and “Words” encourages us to live life purposefully.
