A Birthday Prayer, Day 1

Today I pray for God's Protection over Molly's life.  I've said before that I've never felt a greater love than my love for my daughter.  It's indescribable.  People have said it before and I never truly understood it, but sometimes my heart aches for her.  Recently I awoke suddenly from a nightmare in which she was harmed.  I was in a full panic wanting to check on her and make sure she was ok.  Sometimes the fear of losing her is more than I can take.  I check on her before I go to sleep to make sure she's breathing.  I wonder if this need for assurance will every subside.  The first night I held her in China I was awake the entire night as she slept on top of me.  I was feeling her breathe, feeling her heartbeat literally on top of mine.  It was the most amazing experience of my life! 

And so I pray daily for her protection from evil, from harm, from disease and humbly ask God to give her a long life.

As I do, someday you will look back and literally see how the Lord has protected Molly. One day we went to a field day for one of the kids. All of a sudden, our youngest, who was lagging behind, was missing. They had been digging holes for a new fence and she fell into one and landed on a little ledge. It was full of water and if she would have missed that ledge, we never would have seen her. Just an ordinary day in an ordinary place.
