Lazy Sunday

Sunday, June 5, 2011

When a doctor says to you 'this is a hard case because it's out of my control' it reveals who is the Author of creation. See, the doctors can't do anything to stop the fluid. The only thing they can do is wait and watch. It has allowed me to speak about the trust that I have in God, knowing He is in control and that for me and my family we will trust in Him every step of the way. The only reason I have peace, or hope, or joy is because of Christ. I am a sinner, selfish through and through. Left to my own devices I would choose me over and over. It's only because of Christ's redeeming work that I am able to have faith, confidence, and assurance. God has our best in mind throughout all of this.

Tomorrow is a big day. They will see if any fluid has re-accumulated around his heart. If it hasn't, we will be making steps to getting out of here. As I mentioned earlier, this is in the Lord's hands. Agree with us in prayer that Griffin could come home this week.

I documented the entire day today and made a little video of it. Amber brought the whole family up and it was fun to hang out. Unfortunately in all my excitement to see Amber I didn't get to document her being there. I am so thankful for that woman. I cannot do what I am doing without her being an absolute amazing woman who is dedicated to her children and family. Love you Amber.

Enjoy the video.

I am officially Griffin's number one fan. That kid is so cute! John you are a great dad and Amber you are the best mom ever for Griffin (and Eli and Eden and Flynn).
Praying for a clear echo tomorrow!

"...And let us run with endurance the race that God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, on whom our faith depends from start to finish."
~ Hebrews 12:1b-2
Praying from this verse for supernatural strength and faith to run the race God has set before you by single-hearted focus on Jesus!

Ha, i don't know Katherine, he has some pretty big fans. Thanks for all our support.

@Alison - I was listening to it while editing the video and it just seemed to fit.

I was so amazed at your faith in your blog. One thing Ilearn over and over is how close we get to the LORD thru amazingly hard time. You are such an encouragment. I am praying for your son.
