Is that not the sweetest face you've ever seen? This is Glory Morton, a precious little girl who is almost ten months old.
Glory was born with a congenital heart defect called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome as well as other congenital defects. Her parents knew before she was born that life would not be easy for her, and they named her Glory because, above all, they wanted God to be glorified through her life. She has been at Arkansas Children's Hospital since birth, and even though she's never been outside of the CVICU, she has already touched many lives.
I wanted you to meet "Glory Girl" so you could join me in praying for her and her family. She has already ovecome a number of seemingly insurmountable obstacles in her short life, but has many more hurdles ahead of her. And in the last 24 hours, she's been running a very high fever and has developed some other complications, possibly due to an infection. So please take a moment and lift Glory before the Great Physician, from Whom all blessings flow. And, if you're a Facebooker, you might want to like the "Fight Like a Glory Girl" page, so you can keep up with little Miss Glory. I know her Mom would be so grateful for your prayers and messages of encouragement!
"But you, Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high." Psalm 3:3
