I wanted you to wake up this Christmas day to the blessing I recieved on Christmas eve. As I walked by Madelene she called out my name. I went to her and asked what she wanted. Fried fish she told me. I said okay but you must sing for me today. So I went and got the fried fish. And she sang to us! Sang her little heart out.
I have truely fallen in love with this little girl. It is amazing the amount of damage that can be done from neglect and malnutriton. But….by the grace of God…. and only by His grace……
She is improving. She is sitting up. She is taking her medications and eating. She is beginning to heal. I cannot think of a better Christmas present for me (and all of you) today.
The smiling face of Madelene. TO God be all the Glory!
Take just a minute to read these lyrics from Grace by the Martins
I was in prison, locked up in chains sin held me captive
to sorrow and pain, years of frustrations as love passed me by
until the Master heard my hearts cry
For grace marvelous grace, I needed grace to pardon and make
me whole grace marvelous grace flows from above with infinite love
I was downhearted I was broken inside praying for mercy with
nowhere to hide, there was a solace searching for me grace
everflowing that set my soul free
For grace marvelous grace I needed grace to pardon and make me
whole grace marvelous grace flows from above with infinite love
I am forgiven
I am redeemed
A brand new creation He saved me and gave me a reason to sing
Grace, Grace God’s Grace grace that will pardon and cleanse within
Grace, Grace God’s Grace grace that is greater than all our sins
For Grace marvelous grace flows from above with infinite love
