Sweetly Broken, Wholly Surrendered!

Not only is this an amazing song but it's how I feel right now.  Yesterday I blogged about Vilis:


I just learned that Vilis has been posted on Reece's Rainbow since he was 7 months old.  Vilis turned FIVE in April.  This absolutely breaks my heart! Currently Vilis has a grant of over $8,000 and is part of the 555 project for RR right now.  The point of this project is to collect another $5,000 for his adoption.  That totals more than HALF of the projected cost of his adoption.

Please, I beg, examine your heart.  Talk to your family and friends.  Have you ever considered adoption?  God calls us to care for His children.  LISTEN to the call.  If you can't adopt will you please consider donating to Vilis so he can find a home before he is institutionalized?  I will even go out on a limb here...if you have been considering donating to Danny will you please also consider Vilis...or split your donation?  Or just give it all to Vilis!  I don't care either way, but please help this precious boy!

Here are the words to "Sweetly Broken"

Jeremy Riddle - Sweetly Broken
From the album Sweetly Broken

To the cross I look, to the cross I cling
Of its suffering I do drink
Of its work I do sing

For on it my Savior both bruised and crushed
Showed that God is love
And God is just

At the cross You beckon me
You draw me gently to my knees, and I am
Lost for words, so lost in love,
I’m sweetly broken, wholly surrendered

What a priceless gift, undeserved life
Have I been given
Through Christ crucified

You’ve called me out of death
You’ve called me into life
And I was under Your wrath
Now through the cross I’m reconciled 


In awe of the cross I must confess
How wondrous Your redeeming love and
How great is Your faithfulness


  1. Ok, so you know how much I want to adopt a girl. There is a BEAUTIFUL girl on RR. I am captivated by her. Her name is Reece and she is under the "other angels". She has CP and a few other things. Not sure if she is what is in God's plan for us. But man, she is so precious!

  2. She is! I just looked her up...I am SOOOOOO praying over this one! Do you want me to find out what country she is in, costs, travel, etc for you? I will! :)

  3. Yes, that would be amazing to know!!!
