Lots of Thoughts.....

Where were you when I laid the earth's foundation? Tell me, if you understand. Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it? On what were its footings set, or who laid its cornerstone-  Job 38:4-6

My thoughts have been all over the place lately while praying and waiting for news on Ivy Joy. This little girl has touched so many of us all over the world. When she became ill again last week my first thought was "God, what in the world are you up to?  Don't you know they have been through enough already?" Suffering is hard to watch let alone the ones who are the recipients of it.....

Back when Jeff was so sick and we both felt as if God was throwing us around daily, I started reading Job......God took me to an understanding that I will NOT ever understand what He is up to. I came to know that some things are reserved for God and God alone. This time is just that, reserved for God and God alone.

Most of us cannot imagine what their family is actually experiencing..... but God does and we have all watched how He is carrying them through. The words that Mary wrote before sending her child off to surgery yet again will forever be in my heart. It is apparent that God has His chosen Mommy of Ivy right in His hands. 

All that to say, lets keep on begging our God to bless this precious child and family we have all come to love. May His blessings upon them be greater than we can hope or imagine!

As of right now Ivy Joy is off bypass after LONG surgery, amen to that once again and praying for more miracles as the day continues!
