Update

Good Morning, My Wonderful Prayer Warriors!

I just wanted to say good morning to each one of you. Thank you for your support. Thank you for your love and prayers. We feel covered.

I got home from the hospital around lunch time yesterday. We were able to have a Thanksgiving meal with Brian's family, and that was an enormous blessing!

If I said that I haven't had any moments of utter panic, I'd be lying. This has been a scary thing - a very scary thing. However, I know in my heart of hearts that my God is trustworthy and good. I know that His plans for us are fore good. And, I know that if I can endure any suffering to bring Him glory, then I'm happy to do that.

This morning I got up and put makeup on. That was a good feeling. It's nice to at least look somewhat normal.

Mostly, I just praise God for Brian. His love and care for me has been beyond my wildest expectations. I praise God for a good night of rest. I praise God for a good CT scan after surgery. I just love Him so!

And, if you are interested, here is a link of me sharing my testimony at church a few weeks ago. This was prior to the latest diagnosis, but God was no less present.

I stand by my constant mantra, "Nothing's changed." My supernatural healer is still alive and well and all-powerful in this situation. I just love Him so! I can't wait to see how He's going to use this in our life.

Keep those prayers comin'!

Lindsey,

I'm so amazed that 24 hours after brain surgery you were enjoying Thanksgiving dinner. Praise God! You will continue to be covered in prayer. In addition to praying for your complete and total healing, I am going to pray that God will bring you perfect peace all the time. Rest and relax. Don't overdo it!

Welcome Home! God is so faithful!
I'm so thankful that you're already home and updating all of us your very own self.

The song on my heart today after reading your post is Rich Mullin's,"Our God is an Awesome God".

Continuing prayers!

"Trust and be not afraid. Open child-trusting eyes to all I am doing for you. Fear not."

This was the Reminder from God today on my site, and I knew it was for you.

So happy to hear you're home, in their loving arms as well as His.

Holding you in prayer,

Barbara

Lindsey, You are certainly being used by God! Don't ever doubt that. You are bringing such glory to His Name through your trials. I watched your testimony & it was very powerful. I am thinking of you all the time & whenever you cross my mind, I pray for you, your health, your husband, your doctors. Keep on praising Jesus, even through this most recent trial. He is bringing beauty out of this...and touching many lives. Thank you for sharing your life with us. Sarah, a reader from TN
