Take my will and make it Thine, It shall be no longer mine.

My desire as a mother, wife, a daughter and a women is to be consecrated, Lord to thee. The name Elisabeth actually means "consecrated to God." I've grown to adore my name and it's beautiful meaning.

Case's life and challenges have opened a door to a growth within me that I didn't know existed. I was talking to a lady the other day and she was in awe of my attitude in these challenges. I can not change the way Case is, nor do I want to. I can not make him gain weight (even with the tube in he's lost some). I can not fix his kidney or any of the other anomalies. I am only in control of my attitude. My choice to follow blindly His perfect will. Granted, I have desires. The desire for Case to grow and live a strong, long life. But ultimately my prayer is: "Take my will and make it Thine. It shall no longer be mine".
