I have much to say regarding Ellia's hospitalization and diagnosis.  For now, I wanted to share the song that gives voice to my surrender. "If you want me to" by Ginny Owens

The pathway is broken And The signs are unclear And I don't know the reason why You brought me here But just because You love me the way that You do I'm gonna walk through the valley If You want me to

Cause I'm not who I was When I took my first step And I'm clinging to the promise You're not through with me yet so if all of these trials bring me closer to you Then I will walk through the fire If You want me to

It may not be the way I would have chosen When you lead me through a world that's not my home But You never said it would be easy You only said I'd never go alone

When the whole world turns against me And I'm all by myself And I can't hear You answer my cries for help I'll remember the suffering Your love put You through And I will go through the valley If You want me to
