Doing Battle, Week 40

After many, many months and lots of work, we have arrived at surgery week. All of my bravado has been stripped away and I am having to make a choice, hourly it seems, to have faith instead of fear. To trust and not doubt.

I don't want this to be my story. But they tell me that this is the route I must go so that I can be around next Mother's Day with my children, so I can celebrate more decades of anniversaries with my guy.

My brain is not functioning well enough to put a proper post together, but I know many of you want to know. Surgery is this will be an all-day affair, and we covet your prayers.

We wait in hope for the Lord;

    he is our help and our shield.
In him our hearts rejoice,
    for we trust in his holy name.
May your unfailing love be with us, Lord,
    even as we put our hope in you.
Psalm 33:20-22

Amen, Lisa - His story NEVER ends in ashes. And He's already written yours. He holds you in His hand, no matter what you face in this world - His hands are strong. You don't have to be. We are praying and lifting you up without ceasing. We know that He's already made a way, and the outcome/testimony will bring glory to Him and His faithfulness, as you have submitted your everything unto Him.
Love you. xoxo
