(Deep Breath) While is seems as tho this day has taken forever to get here, in the same breath is seems to have arrived all to quickly, and while Juddah has grown so big in the last two months and has steadily gained weight, when I think of him on the operating table he seems way to small to undergo this procedure. I'm resting in the fact that God brought him to this moment in time, and that He holds Juddah in the palm of His hand.
Today as we left his appointment, in the elevator my mind filled with all the what ifs, asking God if this is the right decision, when we got off the elevator on the first floor, there were two ladies I didn't know. But they knew Juddah. One of them said to me, "is that baby Juddah? Let me see how big hes grown," and she started walking toward us, before she reached us, the other woman was laying hands on Juddah and pleading the blood of Jesus over him, praying for him in a powerful, yet tender southern voice... Juddah laid in his stroller, calmly and quietly, smiling at the woman as she prayed with her hand on his head leaning close into his face as she prayed.... when she was done, she looked at me and said "He's got the light of Jesus in his eyes...." I replied to her.."You see it too?, I know, it's Jesus isn't it!" The presence of the Lord was surrounding us, and the air was filled with complete holy spirit peace... it was clear that the Lord had sent those two women to be in that place at that exact moment so they could be used by our all consuming God for his purposes. So thankful they acted on what God had asked of them, for me it was confirmation directly from God that this indeed was the right decision for Juddah.
One specific prayer request for the surgeon on Friday, help her to see the landmarks in Juddahs brain clearly, as they guide the scope in the exact place it needs to be. It is a tricky area she will be working in and right next to a main artery which needs to remain untouched.
Prayer Warriors, you know what to do!
