(NOTE: I started this post on Tuesday.)
"The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps." Proverbs 16:9
I think this is my new life verse. I even found a beautiful wall hanging with this verse ~ which is now hanging in our bedroom.
I am so thankful that I know the above verse is true. I am able to just "go with the flow" when it comes to Jethro's care, because ultimately, I know that it's not me or the Dr.s who are guiding the whole thing. We "plan the way", but God is "establishing our steps".
It is so comforting to know that God's got it all under control. If we are in the hospital, I trust that we are because that's where he needs to be. Whether it's because we're going to have an issue with atrial flutter (like when he had his g-tube surgery), or because we need to know that our home oximeter isn't overly reliable (like we found out this time). Some things seem significant, and some not so much, but they are all pieces to the puzzle that is his care.
So, to make up for not being totally "on top" of updating the blog, I did throw in a new picture of Jethro. :-)
Thanks so much for the prayers, they mean everything to us.
