Andrew and Laura Mays received a beautiful gift when their son Logan was born in March. He is a wonderful, smiley baby who happens to have Down Syndrome. From the little time I’ve spent with him, I can tell that he is truly a blessing and that he brings light to the lives of everyone around him. Logan is also blessed with parents who show Christ’s love in their everyday lives. This morning, he is undergoing open heart surgery. Here’s what Andrew had to say on his CaringBridge site:
…Everyone has told us that handing him over to the doctors is one of the hardest things you’ll ever have to do and they were definitely right. We know he needs the surgery. We really didn’t have the option not to do it, but it doesn’t make this day any easier. Handing him over makes you appreciate all that time that you’ve had with him and it’ll definitely make us appreciate all the days ahead much more…
…As always, thank you for the prayers. Today’s the day we need them the most. We love you all.
Almighty Lord, you are our merciful Father, our loving Daddy, our Creator, our Savior. We praise you and thank you for all that you do for us, especially for blessing the Mays family with Logan. Lord, please guide the hands of the surgeons, be with all of his doctors and nurses so they make the right decisions for him. Keep Logan’s tiny body strong as he goes through the surgery and as he recovers. Keep his family in the palm of Your hands and give them the strength and peace to know that You are with them through it all. Lord, heal Logan’s physical heart so that he can continue to show his spiritual heart to everyone around him.
Our Father, Who art in heaven
Hallowed be Thy Name;
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.
