When Words Don't Work

Today we found out that our 5 year old son's best friend was just diagnosed with a rare heart disease that requires a heart transplant. Nothing we can say can add understanding or comfort to the parents and no words can even help a 5 year old understand exactly what is happening to his friend. So today from 5000 miles away we try to pray and we eagerly await his surgery that happens tomorrow that will hopefully give him some more time as they wait for an adequate match for a transplant.
So today I ask all of you to pray for this boy and I leave you with these words from the songwriter Rich Mullins;

"Hold me Jesus, because I'm shaking like a leaf
You have been King of my Glory, now be my Prince of Peace"

I'm sorry to hear of your son's friends illness. I hope his surgery goes well and that the right heart is found quickly. It is too painful to see our wee ones sick in any way.
Your father gave me the address to your blog. Christmas Eve sounded amazing and I wish you all peace, love and safety. Amy M.

An update. The first procedure went well on our little friend is recovering. Now he must wait for a heart for a transplant.

Amy- It is good to hear from you.
Patricia- Thanks for praying for them. Now we eagerly await the next step.
