Consider Pure Joy

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. James 1: 2-3

Reese McClain went for Pre-Admission testing today!
Open Heart Surgery is scheduled for tomorrow at 1:00pm!

Reese’s Meme Mem’s and Aunt Sassy had the privilege to take Reese McClain!

This is Reese McClain being sassy with her mommy about getting a picture before bath time!

Of course, everything still goes to the mouth–even her letter “R”

I asked Reese to smile with her doll–Ruby.  She decided to smash Ruby’s face!

This is making up with her doll Ruby!

We met with the surgeon Friday, August 17th and felt very comfortable with him taking care of our baby girl!  Of course, Kyle has done some research on him–he is an amazing doctor!

Many have asked, am I nervous? and I worried? My response: It’s completely out of my control. God has already taught me a huge lesson on that. I know God’s will–will be done to glorify him.  Reese is God’s child and on loan to me–I must follow his instructions.

“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you” 1 Peter 5:7

“And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts
and your minds in Christ Jesus” Philippians 4:6

“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline”
2 Timothy 1:7 

Reese will be in the ICU for 1-2 days depending how she starts to recover.  We will have our family taking turns staying with Reese because it’s physically and mentally exhausting to stay in a hospital 24/7.   The doctors are unsure of how long her stay will be–depends on how she recovers but thinking 5-10 days.  We truly appreciate your prayers and support during this time.

My example for tomorrow–check it out! Luke 2:37

My Constant Reminder: Reese McClain is fearfully and wonderfully made in HIS imagine! Psalm 139:14
