Peace and Rest

It is with a heavy heart I let you all know that Jepthe passed away early this morning due to respiratory complications. He has struggled and fought for his life since he arrived at GLA and prior; we take comfort in the fact that he is no longer struggling and with Jesus now. Thank you for all your support and prayers. Jepthe was truly loved.

The song below is by Steven Curtis Chapman has been on my heart this week and I know that the two angels that passed away this week have found "peace and rest in the the arms of Jesus".

"Feet Of Jesus"

At the feet of Jesus I will lay my burdens down
I will lay my heavy burdens down
In the stillness I can hear my Savior calling out
Come to me and lay your burdens down

So I will lay down my struggles
I will lay down my shame
All the fear I drag around through this life
like a ball and chain
(All my questions and confusion)
I will sing Hallelujah to the One who sets me free
And you will find me at the feet of Jesus

In the arms of Jesus I will find my peace and rest
I hear him calling come to me and rest
Carried by my shepherd cradled tightly to His chest
There and there alone my soul finds rest

So I will rest in the shelter of my Savior’s embrace
Hidden safely in the refuge of His mercy and His Grace
And I Will Sing Hallelujah to the One who sets me free
And you will find me in the arms of Jesus

At the feet of my Savior
At the feet of my King
I will bow down and worship
I will lift my voice and sing
Hallelujah Hallelujah to the One who sets me free
You will find me at the feet of Jesus

I so worried about him when at GLA during the week of May 19. He was so fragile. Thank you for the wonderful nurses in NICU and all the children's nannies and staff - all the children are so blessed to feel your warm arms around them and the care you give.
