...are FOREVER!

Tonight I've been reminded about how grateful I am to retire to bed each night with my husband and baby girl near me.
My heart goes out to a family who lost their 7-month old sweetheart to liver failure, after months of fighting to keep her alive. 
Today Mahie was fussier than ever, kicking & crying...but I patiently rocked her in my arms, knowing how grateful I am to have been trusted with such a special little spirit.

Come, come, ye Saints, no toil nor labor fear;
But with joy wend your way.
Though hard to you this journey may appear,
Grace shall be as your day.
Tis better far for us to strive
Our useless cares from us to drive;
Do this, and joy your hearts will swell--
All is well! All is well!

Why should we mourn or think our lot is hard?
Tis not so; all is right.
Why should we think to earn a great reward
If we now shun the fight?
Gird up your loins; fresh courage take.
Our God will never us forsake;
And soon we'll have this tale to tell--
All is well! All is well!
