A prayer for Maggie
Please toss up a prayer for Maggie, the daughter of Rob Bushway. I follow his daily blog because he is a leader in the Tablet PC world . . . and because I follow his blog I've followed the trials and tribulations of his daughter Maggie.
I am always moved by Rob's struggles-he obviously loves his daughter deeply and she is experiencing seizures that doctors have been unable to stop. He is a man of tremendous faith and wrote about their singing of hymns tonight . . it is a beautiful picture in a terrible time of pain. Pray for Maggie and Rob . . .
He wrote these words in November 2004:
Written on the airplane on the way to Pittsburgh
My soul is worn
Yearning for sleep that doesn't come
Yet, my weariness is
Nothing like hers.
The conversations she has in her heart,
Pondering it all.
What has God whispered to her
During those dark, lonely nights.
The peace in her eyes is but a hint.
Surely, God has heard the
Cries of her heart,
And has answered her.
What does she say to Him
During those dark lonely nights?
The whisper of her heart
To God's ear is surely the
Sweetest of all sounds.
