And tonights blog post will be probably one of the shortest ones yet. In less than 12 hours, little Shakira will be in surgery.
|And instead of asking people what's bothering them|
|and taking careful documentation.....|
|And having absolutely no idea of how to help....|
|except to do what comes naturally.... smile...|
|And they are off....|
|And so is Shakira....|
|And it's very possible that one day soon... Shakira will be the one pulling an unsuspecting child in a "jerry can" mobile.|
Jesus, I thank you for Shakira... and the gift that she is to so many. Her smiles, her hugs, and her zeal for life. As she sleeps tonight, I ask that you would fill her with peace and a keen awareness of your presence. I ask the same for her momma as well. And as her surgeon also sleeps... I ask that you would refresh his body and mind. That as he works on Shakira's heart... that you would work through Him. I rest in knowing that you have Shakira... you have her today... tomorrow... and all the days that you have planned for her. Thank you for the gift that she is. Thank you that you are in control and that you have your baby girl....close to your heart. You have good for your little girl and I stand in anticipation of watching your plan for her unfold.
|And so little Shakira.... God-willing I'll see you on Thursday.... for now may your spirit know that so many are lifting you and your momma up in prayer.....|
