July 21, 2006 "My son, pay attention to what I say..."
These words have been a source of comfort to us. The thing that God sees as wise is not only knowing his word but applying it to our lives. It is not enough to know God’s word; we have to put it into practice daily. He has been teaching us this very lesson in these last couple months. We have found comfort in reading His word each day, but we have found that there is abundant comfort to be found in obeying what we have learned from the scripture. God is using this event to strengthen our faith and deepen our trust in his promises. Oh that we can keep our gaze fixed on him who is directly before us. Our prayer is for each of us to sway neither to the right or left.
Whitney looked great again today! That smile, those dimples from before are definitely back. She continues with her daily routine. Today she cleaned the kitchen as well as straightened up her room. I timed her as she scooted down the hallway in the wheel chair; she really moves along now. The strength in her arms is on the increase…yesterday when getting up into the Suburban she lifted herself up onto the seat.
Her spontaneity is becoming more obvious. By that we are talking about how quickly she responds in conversation. Her facial expression is more and more natural. God continues to strengthen her body and mind. We praise Him for all He is doing.
Tomorrow (Friday), is a big day! Whitney has a couple of doctor’s appointments. One that is most important to her is with her orthopedic surgeon. She finds out if she can weight bear on that left leg.
We appreciate your prayers as Whitney continues on this recovery road.
In Christ alone, Whitney’s dad
