As of 9ish Central Standard Time on Friday, Andy's in surgery. Several of my 2peas friends have assured me that Ramstein/Landstuhl is staffed by the military's finest and he's in the best place for care, well, next to being in the hands of the Father, of course.
Two Sundays ago, during worship at church, my heart was overcome with the truth of these few phrases from Amazing Grace...so much so that I came home, printed it out on a piece of cardstock and hung it over my desk. I've been clinging to it for many things lately, and now even more. I realize it's not scripture, per se, but that song is such a part of my life and always has been, that it has much the same divine power as scripture does, when it comes to my heart.
The Lord has promised good to me.
His Word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be.
As long as life endures.
