I wrote this while trying to sleep at Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock last week. Brayden had been blessed with an MP3 player with Christian songs and praise hymns from his buddy Chris (along with the coolest drum sticks!) and it's such a comfort for Brayden to listen to. I brought a little speaker for it and hoped it would help Brayden finally drift off to sleep. As I lay there reviewing all the day brought in my mind...the final round of High-Dose Methotrexate, the journey ahead with Radiation and some aggressive chemo meds...I heard this. A beautiful, sweet voice, praising and singing. I had to share it with you. Ignore the quality; I was just happy to capture it in some way to take me back to that night. "The noise of all 3 pumps running on his IV pole were silenced tonight. Silenced by the songs of a sweet boy who loves Jesus and was praising with Chris Tomlin and others on his MP3 player. Oh, to have the faith of a child. Blindly believing with unquestionable faith. Lord, help us all to have that kind of faith. Knowing no matter what he's been through or going through, he still loves You. Thank you, Jesus."
