Hope

Tomorrow is the big day. It’s almost midnight and I am wide awake. Both my husband and my daughter are sleeping beside me. My son is on his way to Maryland and just like his days in highschool I wait for him.

At the start of my blog I quoted C.S Lewis, faith in Christ is the only thing to save you from despair.  I love this quote. In the last few days I have been hard pressed on all sides but I have not been crushed. Why? Hope. The complete opposite of despair. My hope in Jesus.

I’ve done everything the doctors has asked to prepare for surgery and now I’m ready. I’m as ready as anyone can be for major surgery.

So I cling to my family tonight. I could never live long enough to love them.

Only in the darkness can you see the stars. ~ Martin Luther King Jr.

  1. I too was awake during the night. I have been praying for you this weekend. You have really lived and showed us how to really depend on God throughout these last few weeks.
