"I will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born." Isaiah 66:9

It's hard after loss to not just be panicked 100% of your life, so scared that something else will go wrong. I have to choose today to believe that God brought us and Baby Mama together for the best interest of Cala baby and that He is in fact, in control!! Luckily Baby Mama is pretty reassuring & shares her worries too, which makes it much easier!!

In blog reading I came across a story tonight & was watching a video a family made about their son, Bronson, try to YouTube that, but they used a song that I had forgotten about, but LOVE. I'm going to write the words, as I pulled out my old hymnal I keep at home and read them all and sang to myself and my animals (they are super grateful).

Sweet Hour

Sweet Hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer! That calls us from a world of care, and bids me at my Father's throne make all my wants and wishes known; in seasons of distress and grief, my soul has often found relief and oft escaped the tempter's snare by thy return sweet hour of prayer!

Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer the joys I feel the bliss I share of those whose anxious spirits burn with strong desires for thy return! With such I hasten to the place where God my savior shows His face, and gladly take my station there, and wait for thee sweet hour of prayer!

Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer! Thy wings shall my petition bear to Him whose truth and faithfulness engage the waiting soul to bless; and since He bids me seek His face, believe His word and trust His grace, I'll cast on Him my every care, and wait for thee sweet hour of prayer!!

No truer words were ever sung! Thank God for reminding me of His grace through His powerful victory in the life of another child!


  1. Thank you for sharing this. I too have forgotten about this hymn, one that we used to sing when I was a kid. Love the old hymns.

  2. Wow that was just what I'm needing to hear for the moment that I'm having. I remember siniging it too when I was a kid, sometimes I wish I had an old hymnal. God is in control!! No need to worry:)

  3. My Kindred Spirit,

    Your right, it's so hard to stay focused and be 100% positive when you've navigated a path full of potholes, but we stay FAITHFUL and keep walking :)

    Love the hymn...inspirational, just like you :)

    HUGS and Love

  4. Oh yes, going through loss does change you. It's with you every single day, in sorrowful moments and even in joyful ones.
    I am always comforted by old hymns, and most of them bring tears to my eyes. Such sweet, sweet words! Thank you for reminding me of this one and the wonderful truths it contains. Sending love to you!
