While I don't have much in the way of an update, I feel the need to write...A dear friend (Katey) handed me a piece of paper on Monday with a few Bible verses on it and Psalm 139 very much struck me. The first 6 verses of the Psalm are:
1O LORD, you have searched me and known me!
2You know when I sit down and when I rise up;
you discern my thoughts from afar.
3You search out my path and my lying down
and are acquainted with all my ways.
4Even before a word is on my tongue,
behold, O LORD, you know it altogether.
5You hem me in, behind and before,
and lay your hand upon me.
6Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
it is high; I cannot attain it.
To me this is so encouraging - our God knows us, comes in front of us and makes a path for us. This includes our son Cash. This was connected by Pastor Mark's sermon today in which he said that God answers every one of our prayers with a 'Yes', 'No', or 'Maybe', but he does answer our prayers according to His will. Now more than ever I am striving to understand that He knows Cash, well before we met him. He has set a path for Cash and as verse 6 indicates, His knowledge is greater than I can ever understand - I have to trust God with his precious gift to us.
Four days after the biopsy, Cash has improved each day. He still says 'mama', 'daddy', 'more', and hasn't forgotten how to tell his brother 'No!!!!'. He's adapted to eating with his left hand (his right side has been affected by the tumor) and Jack Jr. tells anyone and everyone that gets near Cash that they need to keep their distance because of his stitches...he's very protective...:-)
