A short quick update on REX

We are being get updated on the surgery of Rex as it happens.  I got two messages already-one stating that the surgery started on time-there is 10 surgeons doing the surgery-they were able to draw fluid off of the brain and they have sent that to pathology to be tested.
They just reached the tumor and PRAISE GOD-it does not look to be intertwined in the brain.  That is a huge answer to prayer.
As our pastor said this morning-"we are living in prayer today".
Thank you all so much for the kind, sweet, compassionate words you have left here already-you are right God is still the same God-He never changes and this too is no surprise to Him.
As I was praying this morning I thought why do I fear at times, why do I doubt, why don't I trust that things will turn out for the best sometimes? It was as if I heard Him audibly say "Jill, I created the universe-do you not think I am in control of this-do you not think I know what is happening, do you not think I have a plan and a purpose for this too?  That this somehow can't be used for my glory-that someone won't learn of me through this-that many lives won't be touched and changed as a result of this and that their faith won't be made even stronger through it all?  Of course it will-I AM! That was true-is true today and will always be true and that is all we need to know-two simple words-I AM!

Jerm. 29:11-13 -my life time verse-clinging to that today-as we pray for this wonderful family.

Our daughter will be going to Children's Hospital in Alabama Dec. 13 to schedule a surgery that is nothing compared to what this family is going through today but I totally understand their feelings today. We are still in prayer for them. Thanks for the update!
