I skipped yesterday since I spent 4 hours taking that darn test, and running around trying to get things done in preparation for Tuesday. So I am asking you to pray for two specific things today.

Today I ask you to pray for my husband. Through this all he has been a source of support, my encourager, my strength. He puts up a brave front, but when he things I am not looking, worry clouds his eyes. He is excited bout the surgery, but is anxious about the anesthesia, seeing me in pain, and not knowing what is happening while I will be in the operating room. He had a bad experience when I went in for the emergency cerclage with Evan. A few minutes after they rushed me in the OR, a code blue was called and my poor husband just about had a nervous breakdown until Kiki calmed him down. He is simply afraid for me and just "not knowing". Please pray for his peace and that the Lord hold him up through the procedure. Please pray that he has the strength to see to my recovery while juggling some things at work as well (God is in control of that one, not going to worry you all about it).

I also ask you to ask God to step in. Ask him to just allow the Dr.'s to be vessels that he is using. Ask him to take control of every action, every cut, every maneuver that takes place during the procedure. Let the Dr.'s not just apply their skills and expertise, but that the Lord works through them.

The nervousness is starting to set in as he final preparations are made. I am just anxious to get it done and can't wait to have that "insurance policy" in. Thanks for praying and keep praying y strength.

Psalm 37:23
The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.

II Timothy 2:21
If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.

*I am behind on reading blogs, I have approx 85 to read! I will catch up tonight.

Awaiting my expected end.


  1. I am praying & your in my thoughts. I pray for strength for you & your husband and that God would give mercy to the dr. and give strength in there hands and wisdom in there minds to do great things. That you will heal beautifully and soon very soon you will be carrying a beautiful child!!



  2. Many, Many Prayers coming to you Marie :)

    I feel confident in "his" hands guiding those doing your surgery.

    Tell Hubby...have no FEAR, just have GOD!

    Much Love, as we lift you up!

  3. Marie,
    Know that i am and will be praying for you. I trust in God that everything will be alright. Better than alright. Last week a pastor said that sometimes God gives us just a glimpse of our future and not the whole picture. In that we get anxious and forget that we have to go through a process to get to the promise. He also went on to say that often times we see the PROBLEM...BUT God sees the PROMISE. Hold on my friend, stay strong. You are going through the process , which is getting you to your promise. Sending you love as well as prayers.

  4. Marie,
    I am so very excited for you. I would be honored to pray for you, your husband, & the Dr. that will take care of you. I also thank God in advance for the peace & presence that will be evident on Tuesday. I thank God that this is a new beginning to your expected end.
    Big HUGS!!
