Little Mercy...

Hello Dear Ones:
I am obviously back from Charlottesville. It is always good to be with friends and also wonderful to come home to those who you missed. Sadly, when I came home Zion woke up in the night with a fever and was in a lot of pain. The doctor confirmed an ear infection and prescribed antibiotics today. My poor boy. 
I am so excited about all the people joining my group. How loved I feel. How thankful I am for the prayers. I am sad that there isn't any Guatemala updates right now. I hope you enjoy the living during the waiting.

For todays post I have something vulnerable to share. It is an attempt at a poem. I was not good at grammar or spelling in school so please don't grade it. Still I want to share it. It was inspired by a dream I had last night.

Little Mercy

I dreamt of you last night
At first sight of me you had a fright 
I was overwhelmed as I had you in my glance
My heart said, precious daughter please give me a chance
I could not wait to hold you in my arms
I wanted to forever keep you safe from harm
Your dark hair was not very neat
Nevertheless you looked so sweet
Your eyes were smaller than I thought they'd be
They were so very precious as they looked up at me
Then the dream ended and I awoke
I began to wonder if God had spoke
Little Mercy it is so hard to wait
Nevertheless my dream was great
I can hardly wait for it to come true
Little Mercy I can hardly wait for you


  1. I can't wait to hear that at her wedding one day...or some other great event in her life...GREAT job!! :)

  2. Very lovely poem... I totally didn't just almost tear up...

  3. Very sweet.
    A little strange...I had a dream about N on Wed. night. Maybe good news is coming.

  4. glad you got to go on your trip and sorry you had a sick one at home-that is no fun at all :( I would love to get together with you soon-it doesn't even have to be on a lunch mom day! the waiting must be so hard-hang on to Him tightly!!

  5. Your poem is very sweet. I think you did great. I understand the wait, pray it happens for you soon.
