Surgery time.

Wednesday night.  Earlier this evening, Rob received the call from the hospital — he is to arrive at 8 am.  His surgery should start around 9:30 or so.  Rob is calm tonight and seems ready.  We have been talking about how weird it is that he will be having his leg removed tomorrow….. I’ll give an update tomorrow.

Psalm 56:3-4   But when I am afraid, I will put my trust in you.  I praise God for what he has promised.  I trust in God, so why should I be afraid?

    I have been thoughtful and prayerful for all of you throughtout the day especially today and especially Rob. I have been reminded often of the day and night before my cancer surgery almost twelve years ago and the supernatural calmness that I think came from my awareness of Psalm 46:10: “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” The entire 46th chapter of Psalms offers such peace and promise of strength for this day. Your reminders of scripture each day has offered such strength. Thank you for the blessing that you have been as you share from your heart. Know of my love and prayers for all of you. Marsha

    I pray tonight that all will go well and successful tomorrow for Rob. I pray that God’s hand will be right there in that operating room guiding the doctors and nurses. I will forever view Rob as one tough cookie with an amazing faith who, by the way, has as a pair of strong Christian parents, a great big brother, Jack and sweet sister, Lee Ann that all love him very much! Good luck tomorrow and love you all!

    Great Burden-bearer, I bring to you my anxieties and cares about myself and my dear ones; about my body and soul; about the things of this life and those of eternity. I cannot carry them; they rob me of peace and strength. Will you take them, Heavenly Lord, and carry them for me? Amen

    Hey friend

    I know the surgery will go well and Rob will heal quickly. I know so many who have had amputation, many due to sarcoma. They lead full lives- skiing, running, and living life normally. I know that Rob will be the head of his class in adapting to his new limb.
    I am so sorry that both he and you have had to face this pain and fear. I know what that is like and am here to tell you that God is present in all of this. May you sense the peace that passes all understanding today.

    My school prayer team is praying.

    Be anxious for nothing, but with prayer and supplication with thanksgivings, let your requests be made to God. And the peace that passes understanding shall guard your heart and your mind through Christ Jesus.
