Resting in the palm of His hand

In my last post I wrote about looking back and treasuring each day God gives me. That was close to being my very last blog post ever. Just two days later, after the Sunday morning church service, I began experiencing the worst abdominal pain of my life. Steven rushed me to the hospital where I underwent countless tests and eventually a full abdominal exploratory surgery which showed that my intestines had been perforated in two places during the laproscopic procedure that had been done earlier this month. The repairs were made, and after seven excruciating days in the hospital, I came home. I don't have the strength or words to express what this has been like. I know that everything is a part of God's plan. I know that He has given me the most amazing man in the world who has been by my side through every dark moment. I know that each day is full of new challenges, pain, and frustration. Most importantly, I know that my Saviour has never left me alone. He is holding me in the palm of His hand, and that's the very best place for me to be.

I had no idea! I know that you have a busy life, so I never suspected you were so sick. I'm so glad the doctors were able to find what was wrong and fix it. Praise the Lord for His presence with you; His grace is amazing! Now get well!

Oh my! I'm sure glad the problem has been fixed and you're doing better. (o:

Oh my! I have been praying for you (Angie M. from your church e-mailed me and told me that you were in the hospital). Bless your heart. I will continue to pray.

Oh, my friend -
I am praying for you - for grace and strength for each day. How I praise the Lord that He was holding you tightly in the palm of His hand and that you are recovering. Take care of yourself. Thank you for letting us know so we can continue to pray!

Oh, Mrs. C, I'm so sorry for all the pain and surgeries you've gone through! I am praying for your quick healing, as I know how hard it is to have to be off of your feet and having children to look after. I'm sure you have very capable and loving help with you. Bless your heart.....
Get well very soon!
Blessings and hugs,
Karen
