For those who have asked, I wanted to offer an update on the surgery I mentioned on Friday. The procedure went very smoothly and faster than expected. My anxiety was nearly nonexistent in the days and even minutes leading up to the words, “I’m going to give you something to make you fall asleep.” These are all answers to prayer, so for those who prayed: Thank you.
Though we know it to be true, we don’t always feel so tangibly and see so clearly God’s real, active, work in even the small details of our lives. If I described for you how much He has been working in the previous weeks, in the tiniest of details, well, this would be a very long post! Suffice it to say that I am, as always, exceedingly grateful for His kindness and graciousness. Our Savior is a sweet Shepherd, protecting His own whether the road is smooth or riddled with potholes and pebbles.
