Those who know me, know that I do not make prayer requests. I really believe that prayer should be motivated by nothing but that inner longing or push towards the Lord. I don't even normally "pray" as most consider it. But I am praying for Kim. Day and night. In my heart, a constant pleading to the Healer to take this burden off of my dear sister.
You heard us the other night, Lord. You know how we feel, but we can't help ourselves. In the words of CS Lewis. "I pray because the need flows out of me. It doesn't change God, it changes me."
When we first heard the news that Kim had a lump, Annette came up with an idea. A great idea. We dressed up in crazy boa's and put sparkly stickers all over and lip sync'd to "Ain't No Mountain High Enough!" and sang the song "Diamond Girl" to her--it fits her so well.
The words to the song are:
Diamond Girl, you sure do shine. Glad I found you. Glad you're mine.
Oh my love, you're like a precious stone. Part of earth where Heaven has rained on.
Makes no difference where you are, day or night time, you're like a shining star.
And how could I shine without you, when it's about you that I am?
Diamond Girl, roaming wild. Such a rare thing, radiant child.
I could never find another one like you. Part of me is deep down inside you.
Can't you feel the whole world turning? We are real and we are burning.
Diamond Girl, now that I've found you, it's about you that I am.
Diamond Girl, you sure do shine.
