Pink and sparkly

How cute is our Zachary!? Haha I am sure every parent says that as some point, right? He just keeps getting cuter every day! Today is going to be a good Sunday. I am currently sitting on our back porch, watching the world wake up. I did my quiet time with the Lord already. He is chasing me to spend more time in His presence. I enjoy spending time in His presence each day. It calms and centers me.

I dreamt about getting a pink and sparkly and wide bandana to cover my head scar after my brain surgery. Normal headbands will likely be to right and I know that I will be self conscious about my looks so maybe if I get a bandana that is stylish beforehand that will make me feel better. A girl needs to look cute even if she is having her head cuts rom ear to ear. I am having brain surgery in 11 days. I have been praying for the Lord to cove this entire process with His Grace. Luke from the Bible was a physician. The Lord knows my needs and He knows every little minutiae about the surgery, from the pre op Functional MRI next Thursday to the actual brain surgery on the 16th. My dad wrote to Dr. Q from Australia ad Dr. Q already wrote him back! And they corresponded in Spanish!

My hearts desire is that Zachary learn Spanish. Maybe even German too. I would love to teach him these languages. I am going to do my will and Advanced Health Directives this week before the surgery. Not something that any 32 year old should have to think of. But it's there just in case. I would love for Zev to teach Zachary about me and I fully trust that he will. To take him to Australia, to let him meet my family there. To have a love for Sydney Harbour in the summertime, to love to be out on the water, to experience our beautiful beaches. To the place where mum and dad met, where we lived, got married, had our receptions. I would love for Zachary to see Peru and Uruguay. To see Canberra and ADFA and meet our Canberra friends. I pray that God allows me the opportunity to show Zachary these things but if not, they are listed here ok!?!!! Haha
Here is the devotional for today:

Sit quietly in My Presence while I bless you. Make your mind like a still pool of water, ready to receive whatever thoughts I drop into it. Rest in My sufficiency, as you consider the challenges this day presents. Do not wear yourself out by worrying about whether you can cope with the pressures. Keep looking to Me and communicating with Me, as we walk through this day together.

Take time to rest by the wayside, for I am not in a hurry. A leisurely pace accomplishes more than hurried striving. When you rush, you forget who you are and Whose you are. Remember that you are ROYALTY in MY KINGDOM. (I put those last words in capitals :-))

Thanks, Sarah Young.
