I want to share a bit before tomorrow's surgery.
First of all....we head to surgery tomorrow. You may think that is a given.
But I was very nervous about Merrick getting too sick for the procedure. Over the weekend Natalia started with the sniffles, which she shared with her dad. Surprisingly no one else actually got sick. Just our little girl.
But God knew. He knew that Talia would cough in Merrick's face atleast a dozen times a day, and that she would apologize, but the damage would be done. Yet, He protected Merrick from the germs.
Prayer one answered. We are well enough to proceed!
Prayer number two answered. Finances wrapped up with a bow!
The next prayers we see answered in hindsight. The result is a calm boy, super excited for surgery in the morning. Does the cast worry him? No. Is he afraid of 'going to sleep'? No.
As I marvelled at his serenity, my heart stirred with the answers.
Prayers number 3 through ?......answered. In ways better than I could have EVER explained to a 5 year old.
No matter the outcome tomorrow we walk into this knowing there are plans for our lives greater than those we could dream up ourselves. 'Plans to prosper us and NOT to harm us. Plans for a hope and a future.'
And we share this victory with you our Prayer Warriors!
