As I sit here with Abby, who is sleeping now after a hard day of throwing up and being exhausted from a 36 hour chemo infusion, I keep thinking of la Jolla beach and the hours I walked with her as a new baby in the baby bjorn while Mark worked his network job and I learned what it means to be a mom. All those hopes and dreams for Abby's life were just beginning. And now here we sit. It feels like it's all in ruins.
God has a lot to say about ruins in the bible. He's into them. He is a God of hope and redemption. I plan to dig deeper into those stories and see what God might teach me about himself. I wanted to share a song with you written by the guy who wrote the book "Finding God in the Ruins". I haven't read it yet, it just came out. I plan to. He and his sister, who has cancer, sang it with their mom. It really touched my heart, met me in my pain. Maybe it will encourage you too.
