Mercy and her Maker

Mercy when she first came to GSF

Mercy is two years old. She has only lived at GSF for around two months. Since she came, she never really smiled. Over the last week she has been giving 'almost smiles'. On Sunday, as I was standing on the stage singing 'He knows my name' with the choir I was watching the people in the audience as usual. I saw Catherine whispering in Mercy's ear and it became obvious that she was whispering the words to the song. I continued to watch them and then, I saw Mercy smile. And it was very obvious. It was beautiful. I don't know if she was smiling about the words of the song or if something else made her smile. But, I like to think that the words to the song comforted her.
I have a Maker
He formed my heart
Before even time began
My life was in his handsMercy with her Auntie now.

Mercy now has so many people who love her and care for her. We hope that some day she will be a happy little girl who can talk, and walk. With all the love and help she has, she surely could. It is so obvious that Mercy's life was in God's hands even though we have just found out that she cannot see. The other day she got hurt and about 10 little girls were crowded around her, so concerned for her.

  1. That is a beautiful story. Even a tiny child understands that message..."He knows my name".
