Connor Reed

(I shoplifted this image from my friend, Erica's, facebook page. Hopefully she forgives me.)

All Moms need to read Sarah's blog - notsobrightandshiny.blogspot.com. It will give you a new perspective on life and motherhood. I am humbled by this special Mom's way of giving to her child. I know there are countless stories out there about Moms in similar circumstances. But, reading Sarah's blog over the past few days has rocked 'my world.' I weep for her and pray for GOD's continued Grace to wash over them and drown them as if they were in a hurricane.

Marenda (my sister-in-law) sang this song at Hudson's dedication. It has been ruminating in my heart as I read about Sarah & Connor's journey.

Find Your Wings by Mark Harris

It's only for a moment you are mine to hold
The plans that heaven has for you
Will all too soon unfold
So many different prayers I'll pray
For all that you might do
But most of all I'll want to know
You're walking in the truth
And If I never told you
I want you to know
As I watch you grow


I pray that God would fill your heart with dreams
And that faith gives you the courage
To dare to do great things
I'm here for you whatever this life brings
So let my love give you roots
And help you find your wings

May passion be the wind
That leads you through your days
And may conviction keep you strong
Guide you on your way
May there be many moments
That make your life so sweet
Oh, but more than memories

I pray that God would fill your heart with dreams
And that faith gives you the courage
To dare to do great things
I'm here for you whatever this life brings
So let my love give you roots
And help you find your wings

It's not living if you don't reach for the sky
I'll have tears as you take off
But I'll cheer as you fly

    Thanks for sharing Conner's story. It's amazing how everything changes perspective after following his mother's story.
