July 5, 2006 "Whether you turn to the right or to the left..."
“I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.” Isaiah 42:16
What a great passage of scripture God led me to this morning. We have been seeking His wisdom and understanding in all of this. He is leading us in ways that are totally unfamiliar to us but He is making the rough places smooth. He is going before us constantly and we praise His name for this. He is not forsaking us or any one who is a child of His. But we need to have accepted His gift to us through His son Jesus Christ in order to have heard that voice behind us. Please, please, please…you can have this guidance from the Lord if you accept this gift today.
We all got up Wednesday morning and dressed for the doctor’s appointment. This morning was the appointment to see the infectious disease doctor about Whitney’s leg infection that was found during her operation in May. Praise God all is going well! The lab results showed everything to be fine. Whit will remain on antibiotics for a few more months to be absolutely certain.
Then back to Hope Network for therapy. Whit wants to do these on her own so we can only, at this time, report what she tells us. She told us she was playing a card game called…’Speed’…Whit said she didn’t want to brag but that she won 2 out of 3 times. Whitney then showed her therapist a different version of the game and won again! Her thought processes are improving more and more…thank God! She still won’t play a family favorite…’Clue’…because she says she stinks at it. But maybe soon we will be able to have some family laughs over a game of ‘who-done-it’.
Whitney was pretty tired from her big day July 4th celebration, so she went to bed some time after dinner. Her spirits remain up…she just wants to go home so badly. We pray for her patience as well as our own. We want her to recover before we make any more moves.
We know you are, but please continue to pray for the families of all involved and that God will continue to move mightily as He has been doing. There are so many to pray for…let us keep kneeling before the Lord, our God, our maker.
In Christ alone, Whitney’s dad
