In Your unfailing love You will lead the people You have redeemed. In Your strength You will guide them to Your holy dwelling. Exodus 15:13

That word just makes me cringe.

Karoline is having her tonsils and adnoids removed in the morning by Dr. Johnson. We go in for pre-op at 6:30am.

This is the first decision I have made for someone else. Knowing that she will be in pain because of the decision that I made for her, yet it will benefit her in the long run. It just yanks at my heart.

The Lord finally gave us peace yesterday about the decision to not have tubes put in. We have battled this choice for months waiting for a hand delivered message from Him. Yesterday it came through a strange vessel. Dr. Clark was chatting with me yesterday during my annual. :) He gave me great wisdom over the situation and confirmed our thoughts.

We are headed after dinner to Target. Karoline needs some "button down the front" jammies for the hospital. She has requested some princess, Dora or Elmo pj's.

Karoline chose her Dora popsicles and Jello pudding pops for when we return from the hospital on Thursday. She is super excited to get to eat them. I hope she remembers this when we get home!

When you think of this grin over the next couple of days pray for her...

Full Plate

So much has happened, is happening and will happen soon...

Be prayerfully patient with me as our lives are in transition.

Good things are coming...

Cute Dresses

Here are some pictures of the girls from Sarah's wedding the other night. Our friends Greg and Magean were helping me out during the reception while Jared was in a meeting. Thanks guys! When we got home, I took the girls in the backyard to snap some pictures when Karoline ran over to the swing. She pulled it back and dumped a pile of water and dirty sticks on her head. Oh well. Later that night, I came into the living room and found Karoline chilled on the couch with a bag of chips watching Backyardigans...When did she turn 16?
Thanks Mamaw for the dresses! They are super cute!
