Details, Details

I have been very busy the last two weeks with details. Details about the wedding. Details about Davin's surgery. Then there are all of the details about normal life. I tend to be good at doing one major thing at a time and no more than that, so I am struggling to keep getting my details done for two major things and while still keeping life going. God is in control, though, and things are getting accomplished. I am feeling good about the wedding. Things seem to be falling into place. I am not feeling GOOD about the surgery, but the details that need to be done beforehand are falling into place as well. I know that God will give me peace as we get nearer to that day.

I feel like I have mentioned three of my kids quite a bit, but poor little Bethany has been left out of my posts. So, I will write about her. Bethany is a junior in college this year. She is majoring in Bible and Social Work. She hopes to one day be a child psychologist. She has awesome people skills and loves with a fierce, loyal love. Last week Bethany called us to let us know that she had been in an accident. A car rearended her while she was merging into traffic. Thankfully she is well and so is her friend Kelly who was riding with her. I thank God that he has watched over my girls as they drive here and there.

Thanks for notes about Bethany. Good to know about every kid. God will. Humm, Is that a complete sentence? It's what I mean though, God Will. :)

Thanks GMJ.

Hi there. Thanks for coming along to my blog. I'm curious about the connection with all my blogger friends. Are you related to anyone?

Heather said...

Tracy, I am not related to anyone. Martha and I have been friends for about 12 years and have several kids that are the same ages. We used to live near each other and go to the same church, but I have moved away now. Blogging has been such a fun way to keep in touch with her again!

Good to hear about Bethany. Glad she and her friend weren't hurt in the accident.
When is Davin's surgery scheduled and what exactly is being done, is it a hip replacement?

Martha said...

And Kelly too...

So much to pray for. I recall a time when Ben was about 2 or 3 years old and would pray for your family every night.

When you are done planning surgeries and weddings we'll have to plan your trip to NY.

Davin is not having hip replacement. There are three procedures they are doing. One is cutting the bone and realigning it sort of. Another is loosening some of the muscles and then I think he is having a plate put in. The surgery is October 11th. Two weeks from tomorrow. We are actually going to see the surgeon again next week so I can ask some more questions.

Martha, I am glad Kelly was okay, too, and it sure was handy to be able to have her call John and get his advice about the whole thing. That is so sweet that Ben used to pray for us.
