Earlier this week, I was sent an invitation to a prayer meeting for Mrs C.'s daughter. Mrs C. was the girls' teacher for two years and is a wonderful teacher and friend. Her daughter K suffers from a severe eating disorder and has been admitted into a treatment facility again.
I thought the girls might want to make a little gift for me to take with me to give to her.
My girls have a carry-on size suitcase full of crayons so I raided the box for the crayons. I usually keep several sprays of Dollar Tree silk flowers and remnants around and I always collect buttons. So this was an easy craft to complete.
K made a little card with the words "Rain Will Make the Flowers Grow," which is from the song Small Rain from the musical Les Miserables.
C wrote a card with the text from 2 Samuel 23:4
He is like the light of morning at sunrise
on a cloudless morning,
like the brightness after rain
that brings grass from the earth.’
Mrs C's daughter K has been fighting this disease for three years. Mrs C is emotionally exhausted but the person who touched me the most was her husband. It is heart-breaking to see a man so completely broken and devastated for the life of his child.
We prayed for an hour that God would heal this precious little soul.
