When You Wish Upon a Star

We still don't know anything about the homograft and whether or not it will be a good match for Chrissie.  Apparently the supplier of the homograft thought it would be fun to make us wait even longer by not answering the cardiac surgeon's question.  (Just Kidding!)  The cardiac surgeon's office manager has been trying to obtain the answer to the surgeon's question from the homograft supplier, but the answer has not been given yet.  (I don't know what the question is, but whatever the answer is will give the final determination of whether or not this homograft is a match for Chrissie.)
I'm feeling a bit like Ferris Bueller's teacher:



Still no answer!  AAGHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

But God is good all the time, and all the time, God is good. 

Even ESPECIALLY as we wait.

"He heals the brokenhearted
and binds up their wounds.
He determines the number of stars
and calls them each by name.
Great is our Lord
and mighty in power;
his understanding has no limit."
Psalm 147:3-5

If you're wishing upon stars, try asking our God instead; He is MIGHTY IN POWER.  He heals broken hearts.  He binds up wounds.  It is He who placed that falling star in the sky, and it is He who can tell you the name of the one that just disappeared before your very eyes.

His understanding has no limit.

But mine does.

Oh how very limited my understanding is.

While I'm focused on His healing of a broken heart (literally broken), He is busy lavishing us with good, surprising, perfect AMAZING gifts!

The phone rang this afternoon, and with an unrecognized number appearing on my screen, I anxiously answered it in hopes of hearing something about the homograft.

But it wasn't what I was hoping for.

It was what I was WISHING for!!!

We submitted a Make-A-Wish for Chrissie, and it was the Make-A-Wish Foundation notifying me that Chrissie was granted her wish, and Dr. Porisch (Chrissie's cardiologist) apparently asked the Make-A-Wish Foundation if they could grant Chrissie's wish BEFORE her surgery!!!  What normally takes 6-8 months, took a matter of minutes!  Chrissie has been moved to the top of the Make-A-Wish list, and their team will be coming to our home next week to finalize details!!!

Can you guess Chrissie's Make-A-Wish?!?

Princess Chrissie

Better watch out Cinderella (and Aurora, Belle, Snow White, and every other Disney Princess in history)...

Princess Chrissie is comin' to town!

Thanks Make-A-Wish for making this precious princess' wish come true!  (And for sending our ENTIRE family along to experience Chrissie's wish-come-true!!!)  Disney World has never seen a princess quite like this beautiful-brokenhearted-oh-so-treasured one.  Cinderella doesn't stand a chance with our Precious Princess (who actually looks at pictures of Cinderella and says, "Chrissie!"), LOL!

And all of this was made possible by our Ultimate Party Planner.  You know, the One who heals the brokenhearted, who is mighty in power, whose understanding has no limit.  Sure wish I planned half as good as He does!!! :-)

Happily Ever After!

PS  No, I don't have our Disney World travel date and, no, I still don't have Chrissie's surgery date.  But I can assure you that God does!
