gracyn's story

After receiving the diagnosis last year that Anniston had a heart defect, I was introduced to the song, "Healer", and listened to it nearly EVERY day until she was born.  

THEN, when we were in the hospital in June with our sweet, newborn baby, I was e-mailed this touching video of a precious little girl who had received a heart transplant two months before singing that very song to her church.

It. blessed. me.

I know the Lord sent this testimony to us at an appointed time in our journey, a time when encouragement was most needed.  Gracyn's story has affirmed me immensely since that day...  It felt like a promise that Anniston would be in Gracyn's shoes one day, sharing her story with a similar boldness.

As far as I know, Gracyn is doing absolutely wonderful now, but I just have not been able to get her out of my mind so I thought I'd share her video and ask you to say a prayer for her to have continued health!  This video has graced many a computer screen via facebook, but just in case you haven't heard it yet, I'd encourage you to take a few minutes to listen.  I bet it will bless you, too :).

Oh, and thanks for the baby floatie ideas!
