I have been following the story of Kate McRae. She is a five year old girl who was diagnosed with brain cancer last year. Family and friends have be praying diligently for her and they received a reprieve last week as tests came back showing a retreat in the cancer’s advance.
What a beautiful family bearing this terrible disease so grace-fully.
Songwriter Audrey Assaud wrote a song for her:
Look at all the angels watching you
They’re singing songs that we have never heard
Their voices ring like bells over the mountains
Oh, if only we could hear their words
God is near, little girl.
Your eyes are brilliant,deep sky blue.
Your quiet wisdom is an evening song.
The angels must be breathless at your beauty
Like the world catches its breath before the dawn.
God is near, little one.
And Jesus bends to hear you breathe;
His tender hands are holding you tonight.
His heart is ravished when you look at Him,
and oh, the endless mercy in His eyes;
God is here, little light.
