Happy 4th

I am tired. Robbie and Jensen and I came back to the hotel room to watch a movie and crash. Debbie stayed at the hospital with my sister, Kirky. I just called over there and we do not know yet what time for the surgery tomorrow as the Burn Unit does not normally operate on Sunday.

Honestly our emotions are up and down. All of us. I woke up this morning and was lead to this verse which seemed to carry me through the day.

If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.
Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:
Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,
but made himself nothing,
taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
and became obedient to death—
even death on a cross!
Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.

Tomorrow is another big day. Yet we are not alone. So many are praying "Lord, hold my Jacob with your arms as mine are not able. Listen to the chorus of your children. Protect him, heal him, envelope him in your presence. I love you God."
