Surgery done and discharged...

 All went very well with Annabel's surgery today. She had a supra pubic catheter placed, dilation and a cystoscope done.
She came through the anesthesia as well as every with only a little nausea. We were discharged quickly and home in 2 hours.

But I am thanking God for my wonderful night nurse tonight. She has been in so much pain since about 5:00 p.m. She has pain spell with heart rates staying over 200 for about 30 minutes. She is resting in between. I am fairly sure it is hurting her to urinate so therefore she is trying so hard not to. We can't use the catheter yet, so we are having to let her go on her own.She was dilated as big as possible and it was bloody and he want to urine to wash all the blood out, so we much just endure the pain for hopefully on about 12 more hours.

This picture is here to the right of Tara (Annabel's sister) and Annabel watching cartoon prior to going into surgery. I am so thankful that Tara has moved back home, only one more semester of Law School! We had to leave this morning at 4 a.m. and it was nice to have Tara drive us and enjoy our talks.
She loves her sister and her sister loves her!

I am grateful for answered prayers that her surgery was uneventful and we were discharged the same day.
I am also grateful and thankful to Tara for the help and being with us today.

Poor Annabel - I do hope she is feeling much better today, and that you have been able to give her adequate pain relief.

And I bet she loves having her big sister to cuddle with!


Big Annabel!

What is the meaning of calling on the name of the Lord? Many assume that believing in Jesus and saying a form of a sinner's prayer constitutes, calling on the name of the Lord. The problem with that theory is none of the conversions under the New Covenant support that assumption. Not one time is anyone ever told to believe and say the sinner's prayer in order to be saved.

The apostle Peter on the Day of Pentecost quoted the prophet Joel, Acts 2:21 And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved." (NKJV)

The apostle Peter preached the first gospel sermon under the New Covenant. Peter did not tell the 3000 converts to believe and say the sinner's prayer.

Peter preached the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. He preached Jesus as both Lord and Christ. When they heard this they asked Peter and the rest of the brethren what they should do?(Acts 2:22-37) Peter told them what to do. Acts 2:38 Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.(NKJV)

How did the 3000 on the Day of Pentecost call on the name of the Lord and become saved?
1. They believed that Jesus was both Lord and Christ.
2. They believed that God raised Jesus from the grave.
3. They repented. Repentance is a change of heart. Repentance means to be converted so that God may forgive your sins. Repentance is to make the intellectual commitment to turn from sin and turn toward God. (Acts 3:19, Acts 2:38)
4. They were immersed in water (baptized) so that their sins could be forgiven.

How did the 3000 on the Day of Pentecost not call on the name of the Lord?
1. They did not say a sinner's prayer.
2. Not one person was asked to pray for forgiveness.
3. Not one single man was told to be baptized as a testimony of his faith.
4. No one was told that water baptism was a just an act of obedience.
5. No one was informed they were saved the very minute they believed.
6. Not one person was told that water baptism was not essential for the forgiveness of sins.
7. Not one person was told to be baptized so they could join a denominational church.

Jesus said he that believes and is baptized shall be saved. (Mark 16"16) Jesus did not say he who believes and says a sinner's prayer shall be saved.
