Deleting the message...

Ever have a hard time deleting a message on your answering machine?

Normally it's not a problem..but my mom left me a message over a week ago. It's been on my machine since and I hadn't brought myself to delete it yet.

I listened to it one more time today..and before I had a chance to walk away..I pressed delete. I nearly started crying..but I knew I had to do it. I can't hang on to these things..

I will see her again someday..

I feel over whelmed with emotions today. Between not knowing how my mom is doing, and praying desperately for a little girl name Rachael Kligmann, as her life hangs in the balance...

The balance..between here and there.... because it's not just life..or death. It's here (where there's only death)..and there (where there's life if you belong to Jesus)

Update: Sweet little Rachael is with her Lord as of July 2nd, 2008. Lord, please ease their broken hearts and help them grieve well.

I Will Lift My Eyes..

Bebo Norman -

God, my God, I cry out
Your beloved needs You now
God, be near, calm my fear
And take my doubt

Your kindness is what pulls me up
Your love is all that draws me in

I will lift my eyes to the Maker
Of the mountains I can’t climb
I will lift my eyes to the Calmer
Of the oceans raging wild
I will lift my eyes to the Healer
Of the hurt I hold inside
I will lift my eyes, lift my eyes to You

God, my God, let Mercy sing
Her melody over me
God, right here all I bring
Is all of me

‘Cause You are and You were and You will be forever
The Lover I need to save me
‘Cause You fashioned the earth and You hold it together, God
So hold me now
