Baby Kavin Update #2

April 9, 2010

Every day Kavin seems to get more adorable and handsome.  Yesterday we got to see him open his eyes for a little while and squirm around… he is soooo cute!  We even got to touch his toes…His feet are so big and his toes so long.  No wonder we were inspired to make his nursery a monkey room :-).  I cant wait until we can hold him in our arms.  It is so hard to see him just lye there and we can’t pick him up to comfort him.  Jason and I sing praise songs and read the word to him, asking God to wrap him in His arms instead of our own.

it has been almost a week now and it is starting to catch up with us.  I am sooooo exhausted all the time.  Jason has so much faith and strength that I draw from.  God broke the mold when He created Jason.  He knows just how to minister to me and just the word to say at the right time.

We have been so blessed by the many text messages, cards, meals, encouragements and facebook posts.  We don’t have the energy to respond, BUT PLEASE KEEP THEM COMING!  They are often the very thing we need to give us more breath to persevere in the strength of the Lord.

PERSONAL REFLECTION:

Last night as I pour out my heart to the Lord in the nursery, I asked the Lord to lead me to a scripture.  He led me to Psalm 86 and when I came to verse 16, I just got the chills.

16 Turn to me and have mercy on me;
grant your strength to your servant
and save the son of your maidservant.

The exact petition of my heart came from the pages of scripture.  God reminded me through this that He DOES hear the petitions of our hearts and gives us the strength we need.

MEDICAL UPDATE:

We are set to meet with the surgeon tomorrow (Friday).  The nurse told us today that surgery will be scheduled for Monday.  He is stable and slowly progresses in strength.  We are still praying for a miracle and that surgery will not be needed, but like Hannah in 1 Samuel 1, God is leading us to dedicate this child to the Lord.  He is not our own… and thus, God’s will be done to that which will bring Him most glory.  It is hard for my “mothers heart” to mean that 100% of the time… but this too is pruning our own trust in the Lord.

PRAYER

– For miraculous healing

– For fully developed lungs that function at 100% capacity

– For strong heart

– For healthy organs and tissues to be in  all the right places (whether by miracle or by the miracle of modern medicine)

– For the nurses and doctors to be led by the Lord

– For Kavin to have favor with both God and man.

– Protection against the enemy and his wicked schemes.  That no weapon formed against us shall prosper!

– For him to come home to us quickly and full of health

– For us to be open to be used of God even in the midst of our own challenges

– For continued oneness in our marriage as we minister to one another in love

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
