Announcing the Catie Wilkins Memorial Fund

For a while now we have been hoping to set up a fund in Catie's honor and we are excited to tell you that it is now done!!! The Catie Wilkins Memorial Fund will be managed by CURE Childhood Cancer, an Atlanta Based organization that is dedicated to conquering childhood cancer through research, education and support of patients and their families. We have experienced first-hand the good things that CURE does and we are encouraged by the cutting edge research they are supporting. The link above contains information about the purpose of Catie's fund and we are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead.

We are beginning plans for our 3rd Annual CURE Classic Golf Tournament that will be held in October with all proceeds going to Catie's Fund. This year we must raise a minimum of $21,000. I think we can do that and then some!!

Just wanted to let you know about this! Hope you'll check out the link for more information!

I heard this song today and thought of your family and Catie. You're in our prayers.

Held by Natalie Grant

Two months is too little.
They let him go.
They had no sudden healing.
To think that providence would
Take a child from his mother while she prays
Is appalling.

Who told us we'd be rescued?
What has changed and why should we be saved from nightmares?
We're asking why this happens
To us who have died to live?
It's unfair.

Chorus:
This is what it means to be held.
How it feels when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive.
This is what it is to be loved.
And to know that the promise was
When everything fell we'd be held.

This hand is bitterness.
We want to taste it, let the hatred know our sorrow.
The wise hands opens slowly to lilies of the valley and tomorrow.

(Chorus)
This is what it means to be held.
How it feels when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive.
This is what it is to be loved.
And to know that the promise was
When everything fell we'd be held.

Bridge:
If hope is born of suffering.
If this is only the beginning.
Can we not wait for one hour watching for our Savior?

(Chorus)
This is what it means to be held.
How it feels when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive.
This is what it is to be loved.
And to know that the promise was
When everything fell we'd be held.

I would say that it's a pleasure to give to Catie's fund, but I really wish there was no need for one, and certainly not one with her name on it. Praying for a day when no other little girl has to have her name on a memorial fund to fight cancer....
I got the 2008 WOW Hymns collection, and the 2nd disc has Amy Grant's "This Is My Father's World" on it. Catie was all in that song...
