Round 2:

And yet still; His love for me is Holy.
The last month the freak headaches have returned along with other wierd symptoms I won’t bore you with. An MRI was ordered and thankfully they found immediately that our unwelcome little friend has grown. Thank you Lord that you are driving this boat, and you know where we are headed. If I have learned anything, it is that I am nothing. And at the same time, reminded by scripture/ and our Pastor, how incredible it is that God would give us His special attention. We are so undeserving, unworthy, especially thinking of the many ways I fail on a daily basis to show my Savior how much I love him, and yet, His love for me is Holy. It is perfect, and being reminded of  the depth of His love is what I needed to get through this next surgery. Today I met with the surgeon, and after reviewing the MRI, he says July 27th is the date. So, if you know me and love me/ my husband/ my little people, please pray for us?
-God to be glorified in this transaction.
-We need prayer for the surgeon: His hands to be guided with God’s wisdom, to know how far to go without inflicting damage.
-prayer for our marriage, that we would stand unified looking to God for our strength. Cause’ we ain’t gettin’ it from our vitamix.
-our babes. pray they will adjust well, and we will figure out enough activities for them to do in the middle of summer to keep em busy.
-Prayer for preparations to make a smooth transition from hospital to home to recovered.
-smooth and speedy recovery.

I am going to be real and say I am totally not looking forward to going through another surgery, however, remembering all the ways God led my family and I through each trial, and each victory made it a blessing. So, in a complicated way, I am looking forward to seeing how God will use this for His good purpose. We are all His anyway, right? Right. 🙂
