The art of waiting......It has become a trait that I have learned to master. Waiting for test results, waiting for answers. At this time, waiting is a word that defines my life, my existence. While I lay in bed at night I eagerly wait for morning to come. Since Kennedy has been born I suffer with severe insomnia. It is so bad that I dread night time. I dread getting into bed and having to wait there for 6 hours. But why - is it the silence, the peace, the calmness? I do not know.

Maybe it is because the night leaves me weak and vulnerable. Oh the things your mind can think of when it is idle - scary! And then it hits me, my daughter is dying and I don't know when, I don't know why, I don't even know what from (still waiting test confirmation). I wait. I wait for the day when just one moment, a split second will change my life forever. It will re-write my history and leave me a changed person. So, I wait.......

"And we believers also groan, even though we have the Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of future glory, for we long for our bodies to be released from sin and suffering. WE, TOO, WAIT WITH EAGER HOPE FOR THE DAY WHEN GOD WILL GIVE US OUR FULL RIGHTS AS HIS ADOPTED CHILDREN, INCLUDING THE NEW BODIES HE HAS PROMISED US."
Romans 8:23

Never stop praying for healing for Kennedy! I have faith that Kennedy will be healed. If it's not here on earth it WILL happen in Heaven, for the word says we will all have perfect, new bodies in Heaven.

"For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands....we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life. God himself has prepared us for this, and as a guarantee he has given us his Holy Spirit."
2 Corinthians 5:1-5
