We need big prayers this week!
Our little buddy Seth and his family are leaving Friday to travel to St. Louis for Seth's Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy surgery. Yes, it's finally here. The funds have been raised, the papers filled out, the doctors are ready...and God has put it all into place.
This is the surgery that could made it possible for Seth to WALK!
This is the surgery that made it possible for my Pip Squeak to do all the things he does today as a healthy twelve year old. I'm so thankful we had access to this procedure eight years ago. It has been a blessing we could never have imagined.
However, as wonderful as the results can be...the surgery itself is painful. The recovery is lengthy and exhausting, lots of physical therapy and strengthening lie ahead...but in the end, SO worth it all!
Please be in prayer for little Seth and his family. Pray for the doctors and surgeons that will be operating on Seth. Pray for the nurses and medical staff that will provide care. Pray for compassion toward this small boy and understanding of his fears. Pray for peace for his mama and daddy. Pray for good health for Seth's brothers who will be traveling with him, too. Pray for healing and for as little pain as possible! Pray for his mama to text message me and let me know how he's doing. Because if she doesn't, I'm going to have to drag her out on the mats the next time she shows up at jiu jitsu!! Sherry...that means CALL ME, girl! We love y'all!!
I will update when I know something!
I can count a million times
People asking me how I
Can praise You with all that I've gone through
The question just amazes me
Can circumstances possibly
Change who I forever am in You
Maybe since my life was changed
Long before these rainy days
It's never really ever crossed my mind
To turn my back on you, oh Lord
My only shelter from the storm
But instead I draw closer through these times
So I pray
Bring me joy, bring me peace
Bring the chance to be free
Bring me anything that brings You glory
And I know there'll be days
When this life brings me pain
But if that's what it takes to praise You
Jesus, bring the rain
I am Yours regardless of
The dark clouds that may loom above
Because You are much greater than my pain
You who made a way for me
By suffering Your destiny
So tell me what's a little rain
So I pray Holy, holy, holy Is the Lord God Almighty
