Last night got late so I didn't post.
But, today was a crazy day. I feel like it was filled with spiritual attacks which mostly came in the form of FeiFei. He was crazy today. I believe it was primarily a lack of sleep because one of our dogs woke him up at 5:30 am, which left him vulnerable to all sorts of crazy.
Toward the end of the day, he sat at the dinner table and I finally thought "maybe, it's all the stuff going on with Emma and he is sad/worried, etc." So I asked him and he said yes. As we talked, Emma bowed her head on the table and began to weep. She was too weepy to really explain why she was crying--translators only work when people speak clearly and can articulate. We mostly speak English, but when it comes to complicated things like emotions, we still pull out the translators. She never really clarified what her tears were about. But, Joshua definitley had some feelings about the subject and is stressing out about her being there and him not being by her side the entire time.
This came out in his crazy actions today and jealousy of Lucas, getting mad at me several times and throwing things around the house--yelling like an infant, etc. Peter was gone all day serving at church, so it was kind of a crazy day.
At the end of it, I realized these are all "attacks".
So Please pray the Full Armor of God (see below) over all of us here this week. Peter and I leave on Thursday evening with Emma for surgery on Friday. The boys will be in 2 different places and then together on Friday night. Peter will return to them on Saturday and I will be with Emma in Greenville (2 hours away). Just cover everyone this week.
It must mean something big is on the horizon or Satan wouldn't be on the prowl like this.
GOD WILL BE GLORIFIED! So Satan, You may want to just take a back seat now.
On another subject---I had a few strange moments with Emma today--in a good way I think.
I started this whole essential oil massage thing 12 days ago. And she's getting some other supplements as well.
But, here were a few of the unusual things that happened today:
1. She asked me if she could use the restroom before her Cath alarm went off at church. ( ok that may not seem strange but it was as if she had some sensation--that would be weird since she is unable to control any of that supposedly)
2. When we got home she smiled at me and pointed that she wasn't wearing a diaper after she cathed when we got home. That is RISKY for her. She has no leakage control between cathing and is typically not dry. But, she was all smiles and walking around all proud. WHAT? Was she sensing sometthing? (she eventually put one on again, but it was a while later)
3. While I did her massage tonight she complained at one point and said "ouch" on the lower right section of her back as if it was really tender. This is her "bum" side. She supposedly has/had no feeling on that side. Other than up a little higher being ticklish. Also, very strange because I wasn't pushing any differently than any other spot on her back or any other time. (it's all really very gentle anyway--I'm not a massage therapist) Is she gaining some sensation?
Keep praying for her as we are apparently already seeing some things that could be good signs for her future.
Here are the verses of the Armor of God from Ephesians 6...
Please pray boldly as we enter this week and put on the Full Armor of God to fend off attacks on her behalf and ours.
Thanks again for continuing to pray with us.
