Happy Birthday Finley

When clouds veil sun, and disaster comes

Oh my soul, oh my soul

When waters rise, and hope takes flight

Oh my soul, oh my soul

Ever faithful

Ever true

You alone

You never let go....

You never let go

You never let go

You never let go.

When clouds brought rain

and disaster came

Oh my soul, oh my soul

When waters rose, and hope had flown

Oh my soul, oh my soul

Oh my soul


Oh what love, oh what love

O my soul

fills with hope

perfect love that never lets go.....

In joy and pain

in sun and rain

You're the same
oh you never let go
(lyrics by David Crowder Band)

"In the same way, the spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express."
Romans 8:26

"The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, He will rejoice over you with singing."
Zephaniah 3:17

These verses have given me great comfort in times of need. I know some people may question why I always write about the bad times along with the good when it comes to celebrating Finley's birthdays. Here's why: In the Bible, whenever someone witnessed a miracle or someone was healed they were told to spread the great news; to tell everyone they encountered about what they had seen. I feel in a way this happened to us. We needed and prayed for a miracle and were given one... so we will tell of it until the end of our days. I thank God for Finley's life and can't imagine ours without him in it. We serve an amazing and gracious God...a God of miracles!
