Happy fall, friends!
Unfortunately, I do not have a sermon to share with you all today – I have actually had quite the week! I had (planned) surgery on Tuesday and am currently in the middle of a three-week medical leave.
All is going well on the recovery front! Bruce was actually able to take me home on Thursday, a day earlier than expected and – given my impatience and general disdain for the whole concept of rest – not a day too soon!
I have nothing but glowing things to say about Brigham & Women’s, my brilliant team of surgeons and my awesome nurses. And I am so grateful for the outpouring of love and support that I have felt this week. The texts, comments, emails, calls, gifts, cards … I could go on and on … they have been amazing and so thoughtful. My heart is brimming with thankfulness.
In anticipation of the boredom that will inevitably set in while I recover, my sweet husband encouraged me to put in a pre-surgery amazon order to make sure I have plenty of books to keep me occupied. If anyone has any additional recommendations, let me know! If you follow me on instagram (@revsarahweaver), you’ll see a preview of everything I’ve been reading (and I promise to do reviews on the blog).
Please keep the church and me in your prayers over the next few weeks. They will be FINE without me, but of course I will miss the daily adventures in ministry!
Oh – and pray for Bruce.
I took this picture about 30 seconds after I took the liberty of taking off my own heart monitor.
What can I say? I’m not always the best patient.
Love y’all lots!
