On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

All Praise!

I am posting today from the hospital where my DH had his long awaited/dreaded surgery yesterday. Thanking God for His mercy and goodness this morning as the surgery was a success and we are delighted, to say the least. He had a "triple A" surgery for an abdominal aorta aneurysm. 

Since the diagnosis of that, living with the knowledge over the past year of the "what if?" has been nerve wracking off and on for me. Trusting God, fear raising its head, trusting God, being optimistic, and believing we were in good hands with the doctor. DH never had a worry over it due to his memory losses. For that, I am thankful and consider it a blessing. 

We hope to go home today. My family was with us yesterday and all the prayers of my family and friends have seen us through this last year. 

God is faithful. 
No matter which way things go, 
He is always faithful,  
He is always good.

"I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing the praises of your name, O Most High. ... Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you." Psalm 9:1-2, 10

"The LORD is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made. ... the LORD is righteous in all his ways and faithful in all he does." Psalm 145:9, 17
