"Bumpectomy"

A few weeks ago my oldest son – Ashton – had surgery. Don’t freak, it wasn’t anything too serious. A simple outpatient procedure. He had a small bump on his chest that had grown and needed to be removed. I was so impressed at how well he did. Maybe it’s because he didn’t realize what was going to happen! He came through like a champ. No reactions to the anesthesia, he never got overly upset, and so far the healing process has gone great.

I was the one who went into the operating room with Ashton. I stayed by his side while they put the tiny gas mask over his face and he faded into sweet dreams. As I watched his eyes close, I felt my heart break for my son. Even though I knew he wasn’t going to feel any pain, it still tore me up inside.

I felt God speak to my heart.

“See how you feel right now? How much you LOVE your son that you can’t even stand seeing him put under the anesthesia? How much MORE do I LOVE YOU that I sent my ONLY son to DIE FOR YOU so that YOU can have ETERNAL LIFE!

God continues to amaze me in ways I could never imagine.

I hope that you make a special effort this Sunday to come to Fair Oaks Church as we talk about the cross and observe communion.
