Joel’s surgery went well–thanks for praying. They were able to get all the skin they needed for the grafts from just one site on his leg, so that’s good. Only one extra wound to care for. Now he just rests for a week and then he’ll be back at the SurgiCenter to change the bandages.
Joel and I were both comforted yesterday and this morning by thinking and praying through Psalm 121 together.
I lift up my eyes to the hills– where does my help come from?
My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip– he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
The LORD watches over you– the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.
The LORD will keep you from all harm– he will watch over your life;
the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
It just seemed perfect for the occasion. Even though Joel went to sleep, God was wide awake and watching over him. Five times it says the Lord watches over you. Your coming and your going both now and forevermore. Talk about comprehensive coverage.
