Our family is re-united, and it’s actually back here in Toronto. I didn’t end up going anywhere yesterday, as I ended up staying for Ava because she wasn’t doing that well.
And then the doctor sat me down last night and told me something very hard…
Ava is dying.
Our sweet little Birdy’s body is breaking down and at this point she can’t recover without a new heart.
So please pray for our family today as we try to prepare to let her go to be with Jesus. I can hardly believe that I’m writing these words, it seems so surreal…. but there is a perfect peace that is covering us right now praise God.
We have always loved the hymn ‘In Christ Alone’ and I wrote the last verse on Ava’s board in her room this morning…
No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
‘Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand
His power is amazing, His peace is beyond comprehension.
