Many of you know my friend Jen Fretz, but for those of you who don't - her blog is here: http://fretzfam.blogspot.com. Her baby girl, Olivia Hope was just born yesterday and we're all praying for the family, as there are major health concerns for her. So far Mom and Baby are doing just fine, but the birth was a harrowing one (you can read more about it on Jen's blog).
As I was driving to work this morning, praying for them a song came on the radio that really resonated with me, gave me chills and damp eyes as I lifted them up in prayer. The chorus goes like this:
I'll be by your side, wherever you fall
In the dead of night, whenever you call
And please don't fight these hands that are holding you...
My hands are holding you.
Please pray with me as little Olivia Hope struggles to cope with this world and pray for their entire family as there are many big decisions about her care looming on the horizon.
