Good Sunday morning! :)
There wasn't anything new to blog yesterday. The weekends are a lot more relaxed as far as Cale's schedule. His therapy sessions are only Monday-Friday. Yesterday afternoon Julie Hoppel flew in for a few days and today my brother and his family are coming to visit today. They usually come visit every Sunday and get to see all the changes Cale has made over the week. God has really blessed Cale and I with all the people in our life! It amazes me.
Now that we can decorate Cale's room and make it look happier, we're going to make a prayer chain! If you want to be apart of this chain, send an email to email@example.com, include your name and where you're located. We're going to put the chain around his room and on every strip write where the person is from so he can see how people all over the world have been praying for him. It'll be so exciting when he wakes up and see's how long the prayer chain is!! I'll be getting lots of construction paper! :)
Today is going to be a good day! This morning I was able to go off alone and spend time reading the bible and praying. I read in Mark about how the man came to Jesus with a crippled hand and Jesus asked him to reach out it out and it became normal again! I've been told that Cale will most likely not be able to see out of his left eye again. The optic nerve has been damaged and the optic nerve, unlike other nerves in the body, doesn't regenerate itself. Well, many miracles have been done and are still being done through Christ, Cale's optic nerve can be healed! Also, last night I couldn't sleep (along with everyone else in the room!)and as I let my thoughts wander about the future and all that's happening, I had a little pitty party. Well in 1 Corinthians, Paul reminded me that all this stuff that's happening with the accident, and Cale in the coma, it stinks. I hate it. BUT this life on earth is not the prize. In verse 26 he says "So I run straight to the goal with purpose in every step." The prize is eternity with Christ, where there is no pain and suffering. Cale will have a new body not injured like his earthly body. There is so much more to look forward to then the things I want now, like having my husband awake and starting a family. I'm sure that I will need to be reminded of this again and again but for today, this new day that God has given me I will claim his promises and know that I do not need to be discouraged or dismayed because He is my God and he gives me the strength I need. He holds Cale and I in His victorious right hand.
All that to say...today has started off to be a great day! :)
