Inspiring Words

McKmama continues to amaze me with the strength God has given her to handle all she is going through right now. Things with Stellan have not gone as well as they would have liked and he has had some setbacks since the surgery that are very discouraging.

She was very frustrated with the way one of Stellan's procedures turned out today-and that she will NOT be going home anytime soon, as she had hoped she would-they have 3 other children at home. But, even through that, she is trying to see things through God's eyes and wrote some words that have really stuck with me today:

"Yet what brings me great comfort, even now, is that none of this surprises God. The fact that this morning has not gone well, by our earthly hopes and standards, does not mean that God is wringing His hands. This did not come out of the blue for Him. As my friend Ann likes to say, God is not on Plan B. This is still Plan A."

Something we could all think on when times are tough.

Hey... coming over from Lynette's blog...
I agree with you that none of this surprises God... Praying with you (and most of blogland) for Stellan.
Good to visit with you
