God is in control!

That is what my 3 year old was singing this morning(along to the radio) as we started our day. How true and what a great way to turn my mind and cares to Him. To hear my sweet little guy singing these words with all his might. We dropped the boys off at a friends home and they seem to have had a great day visiting -we will have to make an effort to get together more often!
James, #2 and I set off for the hospital where we got to wait. They had taken her off the admitting list and put her on the wait list, apparently there were no beds available. Weren't sure if we were going to get in today and of course the thought goes through mind(as I'm sure it would any parents mind) well maybe she's not suppose to have the surgery and everything is ok. Then all a sudden the nurse comes in and says they'll take us and they want us NOW. So we speed through all the paperwork and head to OR. #2 is skipping down the hallway, she hasn't a care in the world. She did wonderful, they were able to give her the sleeping gas before any IV's so she was a pretty happy girl. We head off to the waiting room. Then decide to go grab something from the cafeteria to eat as we hadn't had breakfast and the little snack food we brought wasn't going to tide us over until the afternoon. As we are heading back to the waiting room I see a dr walk across the hall and think to myself 'that looks alot like #2's dr. Turns out it was, she was done already. The doc couldn't find anything to remove! Yes, you heard that right!! The mass that has been showing up on all the testings, the latest test was done last week-and since that test it has disappeared!! Thank you Lord for healing !! Thank you everyone for your prayers!!! I am so happy and excited that The Lord has not only healed #2 but he gave her such a good day. She wasn't filled with all the anxiety as last time and did so very well. Praise the Lord!!
Oh, did I mention- she did so well she is at home now. No overnight stays for us, she is sleeping comfortably in her bed.

Church of oprah

I've gotten this email a few times and someone sent me the link to the book website today. So I thought I'd share it in case some of you all hadn't seen it.

Don't Drink the Kool-aid

I got another email today that I thought I should post with this. This is from a Pastor and is a Warning to Oprah, he talks to her about her beliefs in serious and loving way.

Prayers and Books

First I have a couple prayer requests. My mom was in an accident today. I guess she got rear ended. Dad said it looks like the car will be written off as a loss and that mom is starting to feel sore from the accident.
#2's surgery is scheduled for 9am on Friday. This could be bumped back but is the plan for now. Please pray for #2 and all the surgical team.

Now onto the fun stuff: books! I have some books to share for adults and they aren't Usborne books*gasp* see I do have variety in my life;)

The first is what's the difference? - Search
I'm reading this in a bible study I am in. It is very interesting, the point is to understand other religions so you can be a witness to them. I am learning more about other religions in this study then I did taking a comparative religion class in college. I find it interesting to see how some religions have twisted or taken the Bible out of context. I can see sometimes how it could be easy to do but then for them to get so many followers that are being lead astray...just breaks my heart really. This is a great book to read with other Christians so you get many points of views on everything that comes up.
The kids and I are reading The Last Battle by C.S. Lewis reading this book and reading what's the difference is very timely. The older kids and I have been enjoying this book-so look there I did recommend a kid book too.
The other book I'm reading is in Chronicles of the Kings Series by Lynn Austin. These are great books, I've read one and half so far! They are a very emotional read, I usually cry during the course of reading them. You can check out more reviews in the link.
