1000 Gifts: A faithful GOD

Tomorrow my youngest goes in for surgery.  This is his third surgery.  All have been minor issues - ear tubes - 2 times, and now the removal of a lump on his chest under his left arm.  Even though my head knows that this surgery is minor - he is still my baby, my child, and this. is. surgery.  He will be put under for a few hours - surgery for about an hour and then recovery time.  But even though this surgery is heavy on my heart, I serve a. BIG. GOD. He knows all of my concerns, my anxieties, my fears, my inadequacies, and loves me anyway.  He cares for me the way a Father would care for daughter.  His favorite daughter.  :)

With all of the comfort that He shows me I praise HIM and give Him thanks.

0227.  seeing the words and knowing that they are true -"As for God, His way is perfect." Ps 18:30.

0228.  the awesome responsibility of teaching my boys that service to others = worship of the Almighty when done with the right heart.

0229.  a pastor, a friend coming to pray over us tomorrow at the surgery center.

0230.  experiencing the washing of my feet by my father-in-law who watched my boys while I supported others in their grief

0231.  reading through God's Word and discovering something new everyday.

0232.  a husband who makes dinner for a tired wife - pancakes for everyone!

0233.  healing

0234.  the celebration of life!

0235.  the birthday of an excellent Mom - one who taught me everything I know... Happy Birthday tomorrow Mom!

0236.  hearing the giggly laughter of my boys. 

0237.  knowing spring is just around the corner.

0238.  Bunco - not the game - but the fellowship of great gals who love the Lord.

0239.  sitting in the palm of His hand and resting on His chest with the knowledge that He has it ALL. UNDER. CONTROL.
