Fainting Robins.

If I can stop one heart from breaking
I shall not live in vain.
If I can ease one life the aching
Or cool one pain
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again
I shall not live in vain.


-Emily Dickinson




Miss Dickinson got is right with this poem! And although I don't understand God right now, I know He always has it right!

I may be away from the computer for a few days. I fainted yesterday after going out to dinner and doing a little shopping with my family on Friday night. It was just too much. I am very sick. I am sad and little disappointed. This is a very unhappy post, I know. I am sorry.

Despite my sour mood at the moment, I am surrounded by my loving family and even more loving Heavenly Father.

Dear Heather ~

Quite distressing to read (more distressing, I expect, to experience!)

May the Lord show you His love in practical ways. May He evidence His mercy & compassion to you (yet even through the night).

Today was spent researching more effective pain medications (morphine derivatives) so I relate to 'miserable'... and YET we praise Him for the 'work' He is doing in us. And we praise Him for His love. And we (try!) to 'rest' in Him.

grateful for His compassion on our frames made of 'dust', HveHope

Dear Heather,
Though I have not known the pain that you have, my heart goes out to you. I give you this:

Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight."

Philippians 4:4-7 "Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Trust in the Lord. Rejoice in the Lord. The Lord is near. Praise the Lord. Seek the Lord and fear Him.

You are in our prayers, please keep us updated when you can.

Love in Christ our Savior,
Emily Rose

Oh Heather....I saw you in Roll Call over at SITS and wanted to say hello.

Saw you were new to the site.

I am so very sorry for the reasons of your sad post.

Know your being thought of in my neck of the woods.

Much Aloha and Hugs.

Dear Heather,
I am praying for you. Even though I don't experience what you have gone through and are going through, please know that I'm here praying for you Heather.

"God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble." Psalm 46:1

Dear Jesus:
Be with Heather as she is going through this pain and has this illness. Show her that you are right beside her Lord, and that you are her comfort and help. I pray dear Jesus, that you would heal Heather and perform that mircle as a testimony to others. Thank you Lord. Amen.

May the Lord bless you abundantly Heather.

A Sister in the Lord,
Jenna
