I have prayed without ceasing for many. These days so much of my focus is on our little Meggan. It is heartbreaking to see her now having memory lapses.....she is seizing and tho they are probably just seconds in length, she has no recollection....a true indication of seizures. She is not even 7 yet, Lord. This once normal, disease free happy little girl is changing before our eyes. And all because a bully kid knocked her down, causing her head to slam into the concrete...unprovoked, just because bullying is what he knows. His parents are also bullies, and they have taught him (and his siblings) well.
I see the frustration and worry in the eyes of our daughter and son in law, trying so hard to pinpoint the "triggers." I see how much more protective her older brother, Jack, is. Her little sister, Ally, doesn't really understand. It is so unfair....I already know about "unfair."
There are so many emotions stirring inside me.....anger, fear, frustration, sadness, doubt....I want to cradle her in my arms and breathe wellness into her once normal brain. The love I have for all of our little ones is fierce, passionate.....like a mother lioness I wish I could protect them all from any harm or ill will. Is this the way You love us, Lord? Fiercely? Passionately? Please, please reassure me that You are near, that You hear the pleading of so many.
