Please Pray for Heather

One of the ladies who is organizing the 2006 Homeschool Blog Awards, Heather of Especially Heather, has been diagnosed with a brain tumor in the last couple of days. This is startling and troubling news, but we serve a God Who is the Master Healer. Please offer a prayer for her as you go about your day. And, for Heather: I do not know what you are going through. Nothing like that has ever happened to me. But I do know the Lord, and I have seen Him work glorious things through immense struggles. I pray you will see Him move mightily in your situation, and be comforted by His love and power.

God moves in a mysterious way
His wonders to perform
He plants his footsteps in the sea
He rides upon the storm.

Deep in unfathomable mines
Of never-failing skill
He treasures up his bright designs
And works his sovereign will.

Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take,
The clouds ye so much dread
Are big with mercy, and shall break
In blessings on your head.

Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,
But trust him for his grace;
Behind a frowning providence
He hides a smiling face.

His purposes will ripen fast
Unfolding every hour;
The bud may have a bitter taste
But sweet will be the flower.

Blind unbelief is sure to err,
And scan his work in vain;
God is his own interpreter
And he will make it plain.

--William Cowper (1731-1800)
