When I read this quote this morning - all I could think of was the great number of people who were "shining the Light" yesterday, by covering my husband in prayer during his surgery.

We have all heard the saying, "When the going gets tough, the tough get going," meaning of course that when times get difficult, people who can - tough it out and endure.

The going has been tough this last year for my H, culminating in the surgery yesterday. I am so grateful for the many friends and family who stepped up to the plate to encourage and hold us up in prayer - helping us to endure the uncertainties.

Time will tell if this surgery will in fact, take care of all the issues he has been dealing with this past year. But how grateful I am for the large circle of family who allowed the Light to shine from within, by caring and supporting us.

Matthew 5:14-16:  You are the light of the world,  A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.
Today we are praising God for for you and for His faithfulness.

It's truly an amazing feeling to know (and feel) your friends holding you up in prayer!! I shall never forget our experience of having that feeling when my son was severely burned a couple of years ago! The prayers of many people to a living God is a powerful thing!

Such a beautiful photo and quote! In the challenges of life may Christ continue to shine His life through you. Praising the Lord for answered prayer!

I, too, found it interesting that I only met the surgeon once and two weeks later allowed him to do his work when I knew NOTHING about him. Didn't even recognize him with his scrubs on and he laughed at that. Unbelievable how when we are in need and vulnerable we find the ability to trust almost anyone. Do we keep trusting the Heavenly Father we KNOW when He has proved Himself to us over and over and over all these years? Lots to think on!

Glad he did well, Val... I'll continue to pray for him, hoping that the surgery will take care of his problems...

Prayers and HUGS,
