We invite your prayers this morning as Max goes into his (hopefully) final surgery.
It never gets easy, and always feel lonely, sending him into the operating room.
“There is, in the suffering of the highest order, a point that is reached—a point of aloneness—when the individual (as did the Savior on a much grander scale) must bear it alone. Even the faithful may wonder if they can take any more or if they are in some way forsaken. Those who stand on the foot of the cross often can do so little to help absorb the pain and the anguish. It is something we must bear ourselves in order that our triumph can be complete.” – Neal A. Maxwell
