Once Upon A Prayer

Every Life Has Purpose

Thank goodness the word "terminal" is only an earthly term.
It is not a scary word really, since our flesh is temporary
and we are all essentially terminal.

A common question I get asked by doctors who meet Lily for the first time is, "Did you know how complex her heart was when you adopted her?"  Imagine their shock when I tell them that we chose her specifically based upon how gloom and doom her medical prognosis was.  This third open heart surgery that Lily just had ultimately will not "fix" her heart.  Lily Grace still has a long road ahead of her medically speaking with lots of uncertain bends and curves.
Every life has purpose.

And this is the way to have eternal life--
to know you, the only true God, 
and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth.
John 17:3


  1. So glad Lily is in your family.

  2. ALL things are possible with our God! I am praying and sharing with everyone I know to pray for this sweet princess! our God who has everything in his hand has the final say and I cant wait to watch the miracle He is going to give your family!

  3. Praying for your little girl.
