Welcome to my contribution to Word-Filled Wednesday, hosted each week by the lovely Amy Deanne at her wonderful blog.
Right now, I am writing about a very tough time in my book on God's workings in my husband's health issues. I am remembering, and trying not to relive, some of the confusion and struggle we went through. But it is reminding me of God's great faithfulness.
I felt the need to use a picture from that time for my Word-Filled Wednesday this week.
I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. Philippians 4:12 NIV
This picture was taken one month and one day after my husband's first craniotomy. There is a lot more here than you might notice at first.
- If you look just below his hairline, you can still see his craniotomy scar. This same scar would never heal right, and would cause the bone flap to get infected and die, leading to TWO MORE brain surgeries in less than a year.
- The hat my cute son is wearing? That is the hat Marc wore whenever he went out, partly to protect the scar from infection, and partly to not freak people out.
- The cane? Partly to help him feel his way around due to his decreased vision, and partly to help him because of his weakness.
- That book? One of Andrew's favorites. And I DESPISED it. This is a picture of my husband saving me the ickiness of having to read it to Andrew myself. What a sweetie.
