The texts, emails, phonecalls have been pouring in the last couple days, and I have to say, I am SO encouraged, SO uplifted, and SO comforted. Your prayers, words of encouragement, and scripture has truly meant the world to me. I am overwhelmed at how much love and support we have-how much God has given us through all of you. Thank you friends for taking the time to stop and write me or my man.
This week started off really hard. Honestly, hard. I was a hot mess. There were wet eyes and a lot of sadness on my part. If you were lucky you saw the snot bubbles:). I was afraid, and failing to remember one of the most significant promises He makes. I owe a big thank you to a sweet wise mentor who kindly pointed me back to sweet truth:
…if God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died-more than that-who was raised-who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceeding for us. Who shall seperate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation or distress or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?…..No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present or things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth nor anything else in all creation will be able to seperate us from the love of God in Jesus Christ our Lord
Romans 8:31-35
What a precious reminder of the love our God has for us, and how secure we are in our Fathers arms.
On the heels of meditating on this scripture, wouldn’t you guess it….our faithful God, yet again, met me, and has covered me in peace about Friday. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted and we can rejoice and praise Him for being real. What a loving Jesus we have.

    He is risen…He is risen indeed! and that is what it comes down to as you so beautifully noted above. Take that peace into the surgery with out and bring it back home with you after it is over. Your neighbors up the street will help in any way needed just let us know
