So many questions, No answers

This morning at work I clicked on the local news pages, as I often do, to get my "daily dose of reality", as I like to call it. I wasn't prepared for this, this was too much reality:


4-Year-Old Loses Battle with Cancer


I knew Brandon was sick. I worked with Brandon for a year and went on maternity leave the same time he was diagnosed with leukemia just before age 3. I had heard that his health was up and down. Thursday or Friday I received a message that he wasn't doing so well. But, I guess you just never think that the end is near for a child.

I read the story, I read his pages, and cried. I was the only one in the office yet and was just shocked. You always hope and pray for a "happy ending", especially for young ones who have their entire life ahead of them. He was his mother's world. Please say a prayer for Brandon's family.


Empty hands held high
Such small sacrifice
If not joined with my life
I sing in vain tonight

May the words I say
And the things I do
Make my lifesong sing
Bring a smile to You

Let my lifesong sing to You
Let my lifesong sing to You
I want to sign your name to the end of this day
Knowing that my heart was true
Let my lifesong sing to You

Lord, I give my life
A living sacrafice
To reach a world in need
To be Your hands and feet

So may the words I say
And the things I do make my lifesong sing
Bring a smile to you
