"Amazing Grace" - Amazing Little Girl - Amazing Mom - Amazing God

Related Topics: Friend, Mother, Car, Cancer


Rhema Marvanne was born on 9/15/2002. She lost her mother, Wendi Marvanne Voraritskul to ovarian cancer on November 8, 2008. Rhema lives in Carrollton, TX and attends The Branch Church - Vista Ridge Campus.

This video was done a few months after her mother passed away.

When I received this video via e-mail it started me thinking about part of the responsibility of being a parent. Wendi had no choice because her passing was caused by a terminal illness that was not self-inflicted but in many cases parents do have a choice about the lifestyle they lead and the risks they take when they have others who depend on them. I see young mothers and fathers smoking. I hear about them drinking or using drugs and driving. Recently, a friend of my daughter got a speeding ticket for going 60 in a 40 mph zone. She said she wasn't paying attention. She has four children and is a single mom. (The responsibility she has to others on the road is another topic for another time.) I see people behind the wheel of a car talking on their cell phones or having animated conversations with passengers or listening to music full blast and I notice the difference in their attention to their driving and wonder why they do not realize they are in control of a powerful weapon of self-destruction and should be paying attention. Being a parent involves all kinds of responsibilities including taking care of yourself so you can be there for your kids as they grow up. Just some thoughts.

So here is a video about Wendi and then the video by Rhema. What a marvelous voice she has!

    After reading and writing all the vehement things political on this site and then listening & thinking about all the loss this little girl has gone thru, it makes me think twice about what is important in life. I have never heard this sung quite so beautifully and i wish you happiness and peace for the rest of your little life. Thankyou.
