Things That Don’t Seem to Go Together

Our 8 month old is finally teething!  Last night she was screaming in pain and her daddy and I were trying our best to comfort her through holding her close, applying Orajel, giving her Tylenol, and lifting her up in prayer.  We knew she would be at this point soon.  We just didn’t expect it the night before my eye surgery!  Yes, I have a baby that is just beginning to teeth and I have cataracts.  Two things that I would never have thought should go together in the same sentence nor come together at the same time in someone’s life.  But, that is where, God in His sovereignty, has placed me right now.

As with the anticipation before any surgery, I have a few anxious thoughts – the unwarranted ‘what if’s’ that cross your mind.   I know that He will be right there with me and I have no need to fear…

Do not be anxious about anything,
but in everything,
by prayer and petition,
with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
(Philippians 6-7)

After the surgery, I’ll be going offline for awhile.  It will probably be a very good thing.  I am looking forward to listening to sermons and songs through my husband’s iPod – something I rarely get to do!
