SURGERY TOMORROW...9AM!

Thank You, God! The fluid around Witt's heart is a little less so he is cleared for surgery tomorrow. We are trusting that this is God's timing! Witt will be at the hospital at 7am. Please pray for Witt's lungs...that he won't have to stay on the ventilator longer than just for the procedure. Witt is at a higher risk than most because of his heart and lungs. Several years ago I was with my good friend(Carol Scott) as her daughter (Lisa) went through some extensive surgery. What made her surgery more difficult were her lungs. Lisa basically had only one good lung. We clung to the scriptures about God being our Rock. We prayed that the doctors would see a difference in Lisa through surgery and that difference would be our Rock! The doctor came out after hours of surgery and said Lisa did great....that her lungs were rock solid! We laughed...Rock solid is right! I pray that for Witt...that his lungs are Rock solid. I pray that God makes a difference tomorrow and the doctors see it! I pray for all of us that God is a Rock of Habitation to which we continually come(Psalm 71:3). I pray that it is not only "on Christ the Solid Rock we stand" but it is on the Rock that we find peace and rest! I pray that once again we look outside our circumstances to be of use by God in the waiting room...that we can offer Him to someone who needs the Rock as their Refuge, their Strength, their Hope!! ~Karen
Witt has no trouble being at rest...even in the midst of doctor's visits!

Loving you--each and everyone of you--and praying to the One who holds us in the palm of His loving hand. He is mighty and His plan is perfect...what comfort and peace that knowledge provides! Hold tight--to one another, certainly, but always to the One who is ABLE.
I'll be waiting with you tomorrow...XO
