Trying To Understand What Can Not Be Explained

To Be Weighed and Measured

Journal Entry January 14, 2013

Grace has gone from 165 lbs to 105 lbs in less than 7 months. She stands up and her hip bones protrude. She lays in her bed and as the covers fall across her body you barely notice more than just a wrinkle. For Christmas her dad and I bought size 0 skinny jeans for her. It is a horrible, wicked sight to watch your child’s body wither away before your very eyes. As a mother, it is really unbearable….

But, Grace is more than just a body and while for a season her body withers, her spirit gains substance and there is remarkable “weight” to her. In that sight, I can not chose pity, fear or doubt. I choose to stand beside her as more than a mother. I stand with her as a faith filled warrior. We, as His sons, are command by Him to see those things which can not be seen. I look beyond her body and I see her spirit!! And there is nothing small or weak or withering about Grace’s spirit! There is a huge fire within Grace’s spirit and it is invading her body- every second of every day. The cancerous tumors have no choice but to be consumed!! Praise be to our God!!

“Looks like a girl but she’s a flame. So bright, she can burn your eyes. Better look the other way. You can try, but you will never forget her name. She’s on top of the world!”
