Ashley

As I think of Ashley sleeping in ICU and her family sitting nearby praying that she will wake up, fearing that she won't, and deeply desiring to trust the LORD and count it all joy (see: FRIDAY, DECEMBER 19, 2008 08:05 PM, CST journal entry), a couple of images keep coming to mind:

Sleeping Beauty receiving the kiss from her handsome prince; her eyes flutter open and she smiles.

Snow falling in a field of poppies; Dorothy and her friends sit up, a look wonder on their faces.

Images from my past; images from our culture. As I contemplate these awakenings, I pray that, on this snowy day, the Prince of peace would be pleased to bring Ashley back to us. Thy will be done, Lord.
