In Surgery

It is 5:42 and my baby has just gone back for surgery ... I am exhausted and the emotions are getting the best of me right now ... I always think a good cry cleanses the soul, so I am going to take a moment and cleanse .... Maggie has been a trooper today ... She has been begging for a pink Popsicle for the last 3 hours, but did tell her Nana on the phone about 12:00 that she was at a party (waiting room was full of people) !!!

Please continue the prayers ... They give us more strength than you know ... The doctor wants to keep us a couple of days to make sure all the infection is gone ... They will be removing the tissue expanders and we will have to let her scalp heal for a few months before they start this whole process again ... That overwhelms me right now, so I will just stay in today w/ the Lord ...

"Father, take care of this mom and dad while their precious daughter is in the care of not only human hands, but YOUR HANDS as well. The ache is so very deep when our children go through a difficult time, but You Father, know that.....Your very own Son hurt. Thank you for the hearts of these parents that trust in You, yet ache as only a parent's heart can. Surround them with bountiful peace and courage, even while they cry out for their little girl. amen"love, mary@amani

Oh, honey...... I am just so sorry. My heart is breaking for you and your sweet girl right now.....
I can't imagine how hard this is.... but God is on the throne! He does have a plan! And as you go through this fiery trial He is right there with you. Daniel 3! The enemy is trying to sift you like wheat but Jesus is with you. He will not forsake you and with each thing that happens, the good and the bad your beautiful family glorifies God.... bares witness of His faithfulness and love.
I am praying....
God's healing and God' peace....
Let our Father hold you girls in His arms...... may you feel HIs comfort.
Thank You Jesus that our precious Maggie is having a "party"!
Love you

From Isaiah 41:8-10:

"But you, Israel, are My servant,
Jacob whom I have chosen,
The descendants of Abraham My friend,
You whom I have taken from the ends of the earth,
And said to you,
'You are My servant,
I have chosen you and have not cast you away:
Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.'"

Still praying over here...

Cleansing my Soul, for sweet Maggie, too:( I, totally agree with you, Gwen, that tears can truly be very soothing. I love sweet Maggie and just want all this surgery "stuff" to be over with, so, I can't even begin to imagine the suffering you all are feeling. But, I can continue to call out to God on behalf of Maggie and her Team.

I am so sorry for the physical and emotional pain you are all enduring and yet, ever so thankful in praise to our Father who heals us all.

Praying on, and, hugs to you all.

Hang in there, Gwen!!

But you are a shield around me, O Lord; you bestow your glory on me and lift up my head. To the Lord I cry aloud, and HE answers me from His holy hill.
Psalm 3:3,4

Let the Lord your God lift your weary head. He will give you strength this day!

Praying for you right now!

Oh Gwen...I am praying for a quick, smooth recovery for little Maggie.
You know, I read a couple of posts below where you talked about praying for confirmation over little Joseph with all that is going on with Maggie...the enemy of our souls would love nothing more than to make us think we can't handle something. Just remember that whether or not this is your Joseph, God will show you clearly. I will pray that you will be able to discern the enemy's lies, because he will surely be pulling out all the stops right now as you strive to follow God's will and change these children's lives forever!
Christ's power is made perfect in our weakness, and when we are weak we are strong!!!!!!!!
"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than we could ask or imagine...." Eph. 3:20
To God be the glory...
"We fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith..." Heb. 12:2

Jesus says, do not worry about tomorrow for TODAY is enough trouble of its own.

and really, today is ALL we have.

so many days I cling to this. I wish I could sit and cry with you, but know that our hearts are side by side and I will walk with you ALWAYS!

Kiss sweet maggie for me!
