Anyway, she had to wait about six days for it to arrive and during that time she got on my iTunes account and picked out all the songs she wanted and made a "Stacey" playlist. When the iPod came she transferred them as quick as that and now every time she has a chore or has an opportunity, she is playing music. I have noticed that there are a few songs she likes to play on repeat (trying not to be jealous that she doesn't have to "rewind the cassette" like I did when I was her age!)
So many people these past couple weeks have been faced with deep loss. Not just in my circle, but on the social media sites, I have noticed many are asking for prayer for themselves or others they know. That is probably why this is on my heart this week. It has seemed that a new tragedy has come up every other day lately and I have had many people in my prayers. My prayer is for them is "Lord hold them, help them to feel You and not the bitterness". No one here on this earth can take away that deep grief, but God can hold and strengthen families and bring a deeper picture of what this world is and how He holds His.
