Yesterday I was admitted to a French/Moroccan hospital to deliver my stillborn baby. After being induced and pushing my 21 week old daughter at 2:14 Moroccan time, Jaiyanna Arielle, 17oz 9.5 in was born sleeping. Jaiyanna means strength in Arabic and Arielle means Lioness of God. I was allowed time with her before they took her to be buried in the Muslim fashion, as her daddy is a Moroccan. They took pictures and gave me a chance to name her. But then, too soon, I was alone. I had my computer and turned K-LOVE on and one of the first songs I heard was "Strong Enough." I let the words of the song fill my hospital room and wash over me, as I felt completely defeated and empty. I know I am not strong enough through this and prayed for God to take me home too, but somehow He will work his plan. Later I heard "God's Not Dead" and the image of the lion brought forth the imagery of my little one's name; even 4,000 miles from home in a Muslim country your radio station brought me comfort through my loneliest hours. Thank you
