The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart;
and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous:
but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.
So I suppose your wondering.....
I tried to tell God this wasn't going to reflect very good on Him. I've done a lot of bragging. Funny how he doesn't worry about our opinions.
Zachary is scheduled for surgery December 28th in the Boise Hospital.
They will be damaging the growth plate on his healthy bone and also cutting it to remove a section to bring it back down to the other bones length, fusing it together with a plate.
Dr. Showwalter has chosen to go with Dr. Mills' first assessment and not the second.
This song has been running through my head all day:
Life is easy when your up on the mountain
And you've got peace of mind like you've never known
But things change when your down in the valley
don't lose faith because your never alone!
You talk of faith when your up on the mountain
But faith is easy when life's at it's best.
Now it's down in the valley of trials and temptations.
That's where your faith's really put to the test.
For the God on the mountain, is still God in the valley
When things go wrong He'll make them right.
And the God of the good times, He's still God in the bad times.
And the God of the day, He's still God in the night....
I was out in my truck after the appointment and my tears were fussing with me a little. I am worried about him going through surgery again. He gets so sick and was in so much pain last time. And here, poor Zac, turns to me and says "momma, I'm sorry I give you so much trouble." Then I really did cry. All I could say was "No, Zac" and shake my head.
Over the course of my life, I have seen other parents go through hell with their children. Mine have been nothing but a blessing to me. They love and serve their Savior with all their heart. I don't have any unwed fathers, My children preach constantly against drugs and alcohol, they don't lie or steal. They don't even know what P.O. stands for. My boys love and protect me like I was some treasure.
No, Zacky~D ...... my children do not give me trouble. Not even when they ~ and I are broken.
In fact, son, I don't know what true grief is.....
And fear not them which kill the body,
but are not able to kill the soul:
but rather fear Him which is able to destroy
both the soul and body in hell.
