God is your refuge and strength

That was our theme for the Salt blog this week. The timing of this one was important to me. This is my beautiful niece Lucy and 2 weeks ago she had a Grand Mal seizure as a reaction to the MMR vaccination. As the ambulance came and rushed her to the hospital and spent many hours trying to figure out what was wrong, her older sister Brianna sat at Oma and Opa's house praying. She knew that God would take care of Lucy and that God was her refuge and strength and that He would do what was best for Lucy, even if that meant she might die. Praise God Lucy is fine, but the faith shown to me by one 6 year old girl who knew that God was her refuge and strength brought me to tears. The faith of a child and the strength of my God!
