God is so amazing! That "peace that passes all understanding" was so evident today as Dwayne, his parent, and I walked thru the day. Some friends and family met early in the morning to pray at the hospital. Dwayne's was wheeled away just after 9 AM. At around 12:30 the surgeon appeared and informed us that surgery was over and things had gone well. The tumor was sent to pathology for testing and those results will be revealed in a weeks time.
During the hours while we waited I can honestly say that I felt an uncommon quiet and peace inside that I know came from my heavenly Father. It was so good to be surrounded by friends and family, especially those who came to pray outside the hospital. I truly believe that God was glorified in what happened today. We really see God's hand guiding and shaping circumstances so that the surgery would occur.
Now the path to recovery from surgery begins. Please pray that this will be swift, that we will not be impatient, and that our witness will be strong amidst all.
Life is an adventure, a journey we travel. And God walks it with us - hand in hand if we let Him. Guiding, shaping, and molding us through the circumstances. I seek to journey more intentionally here.
