Henry’s dad is in surgery as I write this. The surgeon is removing 65% of his liver and his gallbladder today. If all goes well, in 6 to 8 weeks he will be in surgery again, to remove the tumor in his colon, the place where his cancer began.
I wanted to write a beautiful post for him today, something to tell you how special he is and what an inspiration he’s been to all of us with his wonderful attitude and steadfast faith.
But . . .
I don’t have the words today. Instead my heart and mind is filled with prayer as we wait . . .
Philippians 4: 6-7
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
I’ll leave you with dad’s words as he was being wheeled into surgery: “I’m in the Lord’s hands.”
