We find all we need in Jeus Christ. And as God's scripture says, nothing will separate us from His love if we have chosen to accept His gift of His Son Jesus Christ. Christ, who was the only perfect sacrifice for our sin, died on the cross and rose 3 days later. Through His death and His resurrection, if we believe and accept Him into our lives and then live for Him, we are more than conquerors. We simply need to believe and accept His free gift.
We, the Cerak's, love being counted with those around the world who have accepted this precious life giving gift. It is God who strengthens us, yesterday and today and in the future.
We continue to marvel at how God put our bodies together and how Whitney's is mending. Last night I felt as though she had a set back- not eating her dinner at all - so the feeding tube is still in place. But after looking back over the day I realized how worn out she had gotten and it made sense to me then.
Today has been a beautiful day! She wrote her name clearly and on the line. Then off to physical therapy where she not only is balancing on her right foot but is hopping, too! Hopping the entire 12 foot length of the parallel bars, three times. Then for her next session she got to sit in front of a computer to play some games that help to reactivate her mind. She lit up when she was pushed in front of the computer, taking the mouse in her hand and click, click, clicking away.
She also met with an orthopedic surgen who took some pics of her mending bones. The great news is that she was 3 out of 4 to the good. Her elbow, collar bone and neck (no more neckbrace!!!) all got the okay. Her left leg did not begin to heal straight so surgery is being scheduled to correct the problem. Whitney nodded her head in agreement when the decision was made to redo the surgery. We are praising God for awesome doctors.
One last blessing of the day before I sign off. We have a CD player in the room now and as it was playing "It is well with my soul", I looked at Whit and tears filled my eyes. Not just due to the powerful words in relation to all that has happened...but Whit was mouthing the words and singing softly along. Truly, it IS well with my soul!
In Christ alone, Whit's thankful Dad
