Today Jim and I watched Witt while Melanie and Austan ran errands for their house. Today was about the only day to accomplish several things if Witt does have surgery on Tuesday. I am not sure Witt enjoyed it as much as Jim and I did!

Me and Witt

Finally left alone!

Monday is a big day. We should know by tomorrow afternoon if surgery is Tuesday. I'll be honest...this is hard for me so I can't imagine what it must be like for Mel and Austan. I emailed Rise' that this was a real struggle...that it's times like this I have to narrow my focus way down to just the face God. I need to seek Him, seek His strength. Rise' emailed me back scripture...Isaiah 26:3-"You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You." She reminded me that its times like these that God Himself is the One who holds our face in His direction looking only at Him. Tonight as I go to bed I am asking that tomorrow God will hold our faces in His hands just as I had to at times years ago hold Melanie's face in my hands so she would look at me. Psalm 3:3-4 says "But You, O Lord, are a Shield about me, My Glory and The One Who Lifts My Head. I was crying to the Lord with my voice, and He answered me from His holy mountain. I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the Lord sustains me." The Lord truly sustains us, He holds us, He strengthens us...Glory!

I will post as soon as we find out something about the surgery...if it will take place Tuesday and when. Tonight I am also asking God to bless each of you who continue to lift Witt and all of us in prayer. I pray that each of you also find true rest in Him...God bless~Karen
