The surgery is over...Witt is back in the room...
And now he rests!
Wow...what a God...what a God glorifying day!!!! The presence of God has at times been overwhelming. He is always More Than Able!!! As I write this post my heart is very saddened for the family just across the hall from Witt. I met them this morning and had the blessing of praying with them. Their 19 year old son, Reggie, has crashed twice this evening. He has a very rare immune system disorder. In the very short time that I have gotten to know them I have cried with them, prayed with them, held them and most importantly praised our God with them. I see God in this family!
Family and friends all gathered here today to show support for Witt, Melanie and Austan. And if they couldn't be here they were praying and texting me to keep a close eye on our situation. John Young from our church stopped by...he always shows up in God's perfect timing. He even took the opportunity to encourage and pray with another dad(Paige's dad). And Mona brought strawberries along with fudge to dip them in...somethings are more than essential! I see God in family members and friends!
All of you who follow Witt's blog and pray for us were felt here. You rallied around us by your prayers and comments. Your words were so soothing and encouraging. I see God in our blogger family!
Melanie and Austan....my sweet Mel and tender hearted Austan....they continue to glorify God in the way they walk through this. This is a hard hard walk...one that they didn't choose but God chose for them. They bring God glory and don't even realize it most of the time. Life is not sucked out of them and their joy is not stolen. I see God in Melanie and Austan!
AND Witt...just look at that face of Witt's...need I say anymore than I simply see the essence of our God all over those tape-free cheeks.
Thank You, Lord...thank You for being Lord of all the events of today. You are Mighty...Mighty to Save!!!!
