Thank you for praying with me this weekend. WOW, they are in a room - no more CICU!! WHOO HOO! Carla's already got that baby right where she wants him - in her arms!! YAY! I rejoice with you Carla.
I have to say, I had a God moment this weekend through all this. Friday night I was unsure how to pray. I kept saying the same thing over, and over again (and Conner was struggling). I wanted to pray something so profound but all I could come up with was: "God sustain his life, keep him fighting, I know you can do this, save his life, save his life, save his life!!!" Pretty much pleading with the Lord but also so frustrated that that was all I could think of to say - out of fear. Then in the next room I hear Jason praying with Noah and Anna and I hear Noah say "God, thank you for this night, thank you that you hear us and you know what we are going to say before we say it." My heart was overjoyed because all of a sudden I realized I didn't have to say anything profound. I had asked God to take care of Conner and I laid it at his feet. I actually asked him to pray something profound for me because the words weren't coming. I'm so thankful that the Lord took the burden from me and showed me how to pray from my 5 year old. He's quite the theologian and that was not the first time he has taught me about what a GREAT God we serve or how to pray for that matter.
So, now I rejoice with the Henley's! Thanking God for answering ALL our prayers! He is on a GREAT road to recovery! I couldn't be more excited for my friends and anxious as well to see what a "firecracker" Conner will become!
