In my darkest hours, sitting vigil by his bedside, telling him through the multitude of tears to just keep fighting, I felt His presence and know He is a miracle working God. Without wavering, let us hold tightly to the hope we say we have, for God can be trusted to keep his promise (Hebrews 10:23). And this past week as I was paralyzed with fear and filled with worry to stand strong on the faith in God's power and mercy and grace ~ nothing is impossible for Him and we have this blessed new chance ahead!
Now to accomplish the next hurdle - eating after 12 days! 23 pounds lighter (of which he didn't have to lose anyway), we are hoping to avoid a PIC Line for IV therapy & antibiotics but know whatever lies ahead is what is meant to be ~ and we'll tackle it together, united.
During his second surgery, I spent some time in quiet solitude in the chapel. And and saw this written on the wall - and share it with you .......
But now, O Israel, The Lord who created you says:
"Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you.
I have called you by name; you are mine.
When you go through deep waters and great trouble,
I will be with you.
When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown!
When you walk through the fire of oppression,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not consume you."
Be blessed, always, as He has so richly blessed us!
Love you muchly!
