be still VII...

they allowed the world
to see the miracle
GOD was working through
their little boy,
and they did this selflessly...


on wednesday evening
i sat in our den organizing
"thumbs up for lane"


i took a break,
grabbed a diet coke,
and checked my facebook account...

"Lane is surrounded by lots of family. I am very thankful that he is not in any pain. His BP has dropped and his breathing is very heavy. We don't know if we have a few min or hours left and our hearts are Heavy but my biggest blessing in life is that God choose me to be his and Landen's mommy."


i prayed,
"THY will be done..."

i hoped,
"come on, GOD...
come on, GOD...
come on, GOD..."

then i remembered lane's prayer.
it was not for GOD to make lane better.
it was to bring childhood cancer awareness
to others that a cure be found.


then the news no one wanted to read came...

"At 7:53 pm our sweet Lane gained his Angel wings. Our hearts are broken but God has performed a World Wide Miracle through Lane over the past few weeks. Please continue to pray for our family especially Lane's little brother Landen."

when i reached the end of angie's update,
all i could think was

be still


lane's funeral service will be streamed live
today at 3:30 pm cdt.
for the link.

and please keep the goodwins
in your thoughts and prayers:)

love and God's blessings, 
dani xxx

ps. spread the WORD, and make others aware of the fact that childhood cancer research needs more attention!!!

May God surround the family of Lane with peace and His love. I'll continue to pray all of them; losing a child-there are no words.

Thank you, Dani.
