Jesse Tree Day 6

Today we looked foward to the promise made to Abraham of his son Isaac (which continues the line) and then the test of Abraham's faith by God asking him to sacrifice his son, but then providing the ram and therefore preserving the son (the line). We had a picture this morning of a cradle, symbolizing the promise made to Sarah and Abraham, that even though they were past child-bearing years, the Lord blessed them with a child, Isaac. I so relate to Sarah, when she laughs. How many times have I done that in my life. Plenty, but have been shown that the Lord is faithful and still decides to bless me, even in my unbelief.

Notice Sarah Kate's eye in the pic? She woke up this morning with a swollen, sealed shut eye...poor baby girl. She is now on eye drops and feeling better, but she was pitiful when she woke up this morning and couldn't open up her eye. We are washing up lots around here, trying to prevent the spread of germs, especially with my surgury approaching on Friday. Pray for us that no one else gets it, we need to be healthy around here. I need daddy healthy so that he can take care of me after surgury and I definitely don't need to get it. We appreciate any prayers we can get, esp. on Friday as I go to surgury and recover the following days. I know it will be a simple surgury and I should go home that day, but I am a bit nervous. I know I will be in good hands though and am thankful that we are doing this here while we have so much help.

Y'all have a good monday!
