Yesterday ended up being a good day; however, it was spent in hospitals.
It began early. We met mom for a procedure at Salem Hospital which went well. Thank you God.
The day had only just begun.
We headed up I5 to
where two of our little sweet ones were scheduled for a day of surgery.
I mean look at these cuties–sweet and fun–every single day . . .
We spent a good portion of the day in the waiting room facing the doors leading into surgery.
Along the way, I’ve learned it’s necessary to take time to gain perspective.
I turned around and saw the landscape of reality, reminding me there’s always more to our story. It’s the message of God:
For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. Isaiah 43:19 (NLT)
I’ve found when I gain perspective, I’m enabled to see past the hard, anticipating the “more of God.”
I changed in that moment. I was refreshed with new insight, excited for what’s ahead, knowing there’s something awesome right in front of you and I.
And, I am reminded of how God was at work before the girls were born–putting together the details of the medical staff and facility to be present and skilled– giving them the opportunity for the best care and outcome. The unseen work of God is reality.
Both of the girls did well. They face a summer of recovery with great results promised.
I encourage you to be engaged with God. Turn around. Look. Gain perspective. There’s something more right in front of you–Kerrie
(To be engaged is RDC’s assignment this week for our 40 day challenge: rdcsalem.com #40days #beintentional #beengaged.)
