Glorious Unfolding

Isaiah 55:8-9 "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts."

A friend shared the song "Glorious Unfolding" with me when we first found out Wayne had a brain tumor. She said the song spoke volumes to their family when they were going through a trial. I thought the song was beautiful and I listened to it a few times, but the lyrics didn't hit me like they did tonight when I heard it on the radio. Our story, which is ultimately His story, is still unfolding. God has a perfect plan in all of this, even if we can't see it all now. I love the part that says, "God's plan from the start, for this world and your heart, has been to show His glory and His grace." That has been the cry of our heart, to bring God glory. I just wanted to share this song with you as maybe it will speak to you tonight as well.



Hebrews 10:22-23 " Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful." We can rely on God because He keeps all of His promises. So thankful that He is faithful and true! I can't wait to one day see His glorious plan unfolded before us!!

Update on Wayne: His neurosurgeon/oncology appointment is officially set for Thursday, 3/26. Our friend Pete Oakley visited Wayne today during his lunch. He said that Wayne was playing basketball as part of his therapy. I'm sure he wasn't running around shooting, but I'm positive that he enjoyed having a basketball in his hand shooting hoops. He's getting ready to hit the Moody basketball courts again in a few weeks, so watch out!

I've been asked about specific prayer requests. Here are a few that come to my mind: that Wayne is released from rehabilitation the same day as his appointment to save me extra trips downtown to get him; for continued strength, perseverance, and encouragement to Wayne as he's doing rehabilitation and away from the family; for the rest of us at home to work hard on our school work, get along and keep persevering in our daily lives. You can also pray for me as I try to keep all the paperwork, forms, cancer information, etc organized.
