– Elizabeth Hunnicutt, from her album On The Way (emphasis mine)
Here is a sneak peak at a video I made today that I’ll be sharing with a local MOPS group on Tuesday.
It’s crazy how 4 years later, looking at all these pics again, the tears still flow just as heavily. I get downright cranky looking at some of the pictures from Noah’s stint, aka, life in the hospital. I get pissed that he was ever sick at all…and, I know they are brothers, but seriously!? Ryan looks exactly like Noah to me right now…and though I do stare at him and love on him for being himself, it’s hard not to see Noah’s face in Ryan’s sometimes. Please pray that I can hold it together and share what is on my heart without being a slobbery, bawling mess.
Elizabeth gave me permission to use this song. She didn’t realize as she wrote the words from her own heart that they would be words from my very own heart unable to be conveyed. I am so grateful that God has gifted some to be musicians! Thanks, Elizabeth!
(*And, Elizabeth’s album is on sale right now in time for Christmas. And, be checking back on her site because she’s debuting another album soon! I can’t wait!)
Wow. I cannot tell you what that video did to my heart…it brought back so many memories(and tears) of when I first heard about Noah and the prayers prayed on his behalf. I can’t even imagine your heart. I am praying that God continue to bring comfort to the deep places and that when you speak His grace and strength would flow through you. Praying for mom’s hearts to be changed as Noah’s story is shared. Blessings to you and yours.
Oh, Adrienne. That must have been so hard to put together. It made me cry just remembering all the anguish you all had to go through during that time. I pray you’ll be able to speak to those women to convey what God has lid on your heart. There’s no way they can hear Noah’s story – your story- and not be touched in the depths of their souls. Praying for you.
laid* on your heart. Sorry.
Beautiful video. Praying tomorrow will go really well and Noah’s legacy will keep growing!
What a moving video. I’ve followed since Noah was in the hospital, and have prayed for your family so many times. The video breaks my heart and my keyboard is full of tears so I can’t imagine what it must’ve been like to make that. Noah will forever remain in so many people’s hearts, including mine. I needed to see this today to be reminded of the 2 beautiful blessings I have at home that are healthy. Thank you for sharing something so beautiful and moving.
What a beautiful video! Such a handsome, sweet little boy. I’ve been reading your blog for several years now, and just moved to Denver and am working on peds floor and your family comes to my mind often, even though we’ve never met (I do sometimes hope that maybe someday I’ll randomly run into you guys at the store or something haha) Praying for you all!
Beautiful Adrienne, I feel so blessed that I had the opportunity to meet you. Your story continues to touch me. Merry Christmas to you and yours. Cija
Beautiful Adrienne – and it makes the tears flow hard and fast here too.
