Wow, Wow, Wow, Wow, Wow, again - just TOTALLY speechless at my God's FAVOR!!!!! In the words of Bob Hoektstra,  its that exceedingly abundantly ability of the Lord, hahahaha!!!  It defies description - there are just NO words to give the Love of God justice.  He is just indescribably Awesome!!  That ability to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or can even  think, according to (His) power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen!!!!!!!!!!!   All I can say is Amen, Amen, Amen!!!!  Oh My God!  Just Amazing!!  

Well, yesterday my "she-roes" underwent the kidney transplant surgery where Malaika gave a kidney to her sister Miata. The surgeries went incredibly well with no complications!!  Can you imagine??? Wow, it just blows my mind again to 1st hand experience the things the Lord has in store for His children.  What Satan sought to destroy, the Lord turned around for good, for His glory!! And blessed us. And the best part is - He is not finished yet!!  Boom!

Miata is beyond delirious - HAHAHAHAHA!  So extremely happy and excited at the prospect of no more dialysis!!!  Her first words post surgery was "I want a Vanilla coke", HAHAHAHAHA, and the smiles were non-stop (even if the anesthesia was still working, hahahaha). And best of all we had PEE!!!!  (yes, already!!)

Malaika was just purely amazaing.  Even post surgery, while still drug induced she was asking how Miata was.  What a heart!! Sisterly love.  My heart is just full. 

This journey has been such an incredible experience where literally putting your hand, your fears, your thoughts, your praise, your everything at the Lord's feet has been the lesson (at least for me).  And realizing that it is all good - because He said so.  Even though I am deliriously happy and tired, I continue to celebrate a loving God, for His favor, a matchless Saviour, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit throughout this journey, Amen!

It's just begun!!
