My Heart Aches

My heart aches at this moment for a dear cousin of mine! My cousin Tracy and her husband Stuart have tried many, many times to have a child of their own. They decided to adopt a sweet baby girl they named Millie, they were there when she was born and ready to get everything finalized to bring her home to her new, loving family! The birthfather has come out to say he wants Millie now and there's nothing they can do about it, they are returning home on Saturday without Millie. My stomach hurts and my heart aches for their pain, I just can not imagine the heart ache and pain they are going through. I ask you all to please, please keep them in your prayers. If not them, for little Miss Millie. She needs prays for herself, I pray she is going to a loving, Christian home. I know God has His hands on this situation but it's oh so hard to understand this, they are such wonderful people and want a baby so badly in their home! Tracy and Stuart, if you ever read this, know that everyone that reads this says a little prayer for you both and little Miss Millie! I also ask you all to pray for the child God has in mind for them, please Lord just keep your hand on that child and protect him. Protect this child or unborn child from any harm, until they are in the loving, Christian arms of Tracy and Stuart! God has a plan and everything is in His timing! He is in control!!!

Now, before I even heard about this horrific news, I was in my car riding back to the office to wrap up some business. I was tuning into the radio, when I heard Miley Cyrus' new song "The Climb"... I'm not a huge fan of Miley Cyrus or of Hannaha Montana (or whoever she calls herself) but the lyrics to this song are so very true to everyone that reads this! I was thinking of different situations in my life and it's so true, no matter what anyone is going through "There's always going to be a uphill climb" So below I attached the lyrics, in so many ways... it's wonderful, encouraging words!

The Climb by Miley Cyrus
I can almost see it
That dream I am dreaming
But there's a voice inside my head saying
"You'll never reach it"
Every step I'm taking
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking
But I gotta keep trying
Gotta keep my head held high
There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna want to make it move
Always gonna be a uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose
Ain't about fast I get there
Ain't about whats waiting on the other side
It's the climb
The stuggles I'm facing
The chances I'm taking
Sometims might knock me down
But no, I'm not breaking
I may not know it
But these are the moments that
I'm gonna remember most, yeah
Just gotta keep going
And I, I got to be strong
Just keep pushing on
'Cause there's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna want to make it move
Always gonna be a uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose
Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb
Keep on moving, keep climbing
Keep the faith, baby
It's all about, it's all about the climb
keep the faith, keep your faith!
Now for me personally, this reminds me of my job. When I first started it was very difficult. It still can be at times, but I had to make the decision to take the climb. Keep moving forward and it all has worked out! God is the most AMAZING God, He love us so much! Tracy and Stuart, I love you so much, my heart is hurting for you both right now. I know the Lord has his big arms right around you and He will bring you strength to get through these times! Little Miss Millie, you will always be my "second cousin" and I will always pray for you!
Love you all!

So sorry to hear about your cousin. Thats terrible news. I will keep everyone in my prayers, especially Millie.

I don't care much for Miley, but I do like that song.
