Dear Jesus, oh, my Precious Lord--
I come to you, as You are so adored.

This is Ronee', and I am a little girl;
And my prayer to you, I want to unfurl.

You know lately that I have been very sick,
And I feel like it's been a part of life's cruel trick.

I just got out of the hospital again, had much pain--
And it's pain I've had to live with again and again.

I have arthritis, and I have pain in my joints--
And it's a problem that is bound to disappoint.

I am tired of hurting and aching all of the time;
And then people wonder why I often cry and whine!

Why do I deserve this, this awful, terrible pain?
I hate feeling so sick, over and over again!!

I want to be able to jump and run; not much to ask;
And I am sure, if I were able, I'd do this very task!

I've asked for your Healing Touch, haven't got it yet,
And that really makes me unhappy and upset!

Don't you love me? Is it because I have been bad?
If I WAS bad, I'm so sorry, makes me sad!!

Please take away my pain, I ask of you today--
I want to be like the other kids, to run and play!!

I don't like being on my crutches all that much;
Is that too much to ask for..Your Healing Touch??

Thank you for listening to my prayer;
But I want to know that You really care!!

I know this ending will probably sound the same,
But I end this prayer in Jesus' Name!


As you can tell by this above poem (prayer), Ronee' has been feeling frustrated with her situation involving the pain in her joints and of her hospitalizations. She is dealing with the implications of her disease and the news of impending surgeries (she faces her first joint replacement surgery sometime next year), and she is understandably scared and upset, unsure of what her future will hold. She has been depressed, too, and she has been doing a lot of writing and soul searching to help her deal with unanswered questions and emotions she is currently experiencing.

This hurts so badly, I just read it to my 7yr. old, she was fusting with stuff at the beginning but turned around and really listened as I continued, I choked up a few times but got through it...she said, "I would gladly give my joints to the little girl.", eyes wide and precious, I told her we all would...give Ronee' mine and my daughter's love, and a gentle hug.
