This night

I went to sleep last night listening to Fernando Ortega sing "Jesus King of Angels,"

Jesus King of angels heaven's light
Shine Your face upon this house tonight
Let no evil come into my dreams
Light of heaven keep me in your peace
Remind me how you made dark spirit's flee
And spoke Your power to the raging sea
And spoke Your mercy to a sinful man
Remind me Jesus this is what I am

The universe is vast beyond the stars
But you are mindful when a sparrow falls
And mindful of the anxious thoughts
That find me, surround me and bind me

With all my heart I love you Sovereign Lord
Tomorrow let me love you even more
And rise to speak the goodness of Your name
Until I close my eyes and sleep again

Jesus king of angels heaven's light
Hold my hand and keep me through this night.

Betsy's first nurse Jeff in ICU Monday night called her "the sparrow," because God's eye is on the sparrow.

  1. "The Sparrow" is an awesome analogy! (I'm singing it in my head now). I would say you guys are a flock of sparrows.... God's watchful eye and hand of protection have covered you and will continue to do so. Tell Jeff I said thank you for telling Betsy that! Now... if he could just figure out how to get her some color in ICU :).
