Inside Out

Well, as many of you know at 7:00 on May 7th I, Jennifer, will be having back surgery on my L5-S1 area. I have had some back pain for the last 3 years and have had some chiropractic work. However, due through a series events recently the doctors decided it was time to take care of it. It can feel a little overwhelming at time. To be honest I have total peace about the surgery. The hard part is understanding that my interactions with my kids is having to shift a bit. I can not throw them around the house and do airplane, or let them crawl and climb all over me for the next couple of months. The hardest part is feeling like a burden. That other people are having to shift their schedules to accommodate. Though I know that all of the people I love so dearly make themselves available to love and serve from a genuine place in their heart. I still don't like making people change their lives though. I secertly am looking forward to some down time with the Lord. I wonder what He is going to say, or do? I wonder if I will finally allow Him to teach me the discipline of being still and resting. I pray that this time is honoring and not a spiritual waste- on my part that is.

So, if you could keep my family in your prayers that would be appreciated. Look forward to updating you all on the cool thing(s) God showed me.

Much love to you all!

I have been praying for you and your family. Perhaps we can learn better how to meet the needs of others after we have allowed others to meet our needs?
I love you,
