Surgery Day...

Beau will be heading into surgery tomorrow at 10:45 am (11:45 GA time). Please say some prayers for him and his surgical team. The surgery is supposed to last 5-6 hours. Buster and Jeanne flew out to Houston this morning to be there for the surgery and Jessica's mom will be there later in the week. He's got a long road ahead of him in the recovery department but we all know how determined and stubborn Beau is so we're thinking he'll bounce back faster than your average person :)

Beau, Jessica and my family would like to say a special thank you to the Turner family for being so great to Beau and Jessica. Steve Turner is the owner of the motor-sports team that Beau works for in Charlotte, and he's also the one that gave Beau the opportunity to run the four ARCA races that he ran last year. They happen to live near Houston and have given Beau and Jessica a place to stay while they have had to be out there. It's great for them to have some friends out there in Texas where they really don't know anyone else. Sandra, Steve, Kris and James - Thank you all so much for opening your home and your hearts to Beau and Jessica. You'll never know how much you are appreciated.

As Beau prepares for his surgery tomorrow and we prepare to pray him through it, I'd like to leave everyone with a reminder of how blessed he really is and the kinds of friends he has...here is a picture sent to me by some of the great friends that Beau and Jessica have made in North Carolina.....

"For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express." Romans 8:24-26

Beau,
You are in our prayers today! We lift up the surgeons, Jessica, your mom and dad, Maggie, Seth, Daniel, your grandmom, all your uncles and precious Paige.
We are claiming Ps. 91
Psalm 91

1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

2 I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust."

3 Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare
and from the deadly pestilence.

4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,

6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.

7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.

8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.

9 If you make the Most High your dwelling—
even the LORD, who is my refuge-

10 then no harm will befall you,
no disaster will come near your tent.

11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;

12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him
and show him my salvation."
