Wednesday – it was more of a normal day for Whitney which is really a good thing. The progress she makes has become more of the week to week improvement. Oh, she gets stronger, her endurance lasts longer, she is good at multi-tasking in most things, she walks with less of a limp. The changes are more subtle now but so welcomed to see.
Whitney went with us at lunch time to visit some very dear and special friends. She walked into Spectrum Continuing Care Center, where she spent about 5 weeks of her recovery time. Each person was amazed to se her standing up so tall and so happy for her progress. She carried on very pleasant conversation with them; it was so great to witness. Whitney was so excited to see them and her dimpled smile proved that. It made us thankful for those in this profession, so thankful for the folks at Spectrum and Hope. It made us remember the road Whitney has traveled so quickly. It is people like these that have made it a possibility. We know it is their job, but they all do it so well and with such love and caring. We will be forever thankful to you all. This was definitely the highlight of the day for Whitney.
We continue to be humbled as we read and hear of people praying for Whitney. We know God is working in her body and in her brain. And He uses this situation still to touch so many. He is using this to teach us. We thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. God has given us strength and comfort through the prayers of fellow Christians.
Today as we pray for one another, we want to lift up those who do not know our Lord Jesus Christ. We pray they would know the comfort, strength, and deliverance that come from a life given and committed to Him.
“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature reaps destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.” Galatians 6:7-10 NIV
Today we pray to make the most of every opportunity.
In Christ alone, Whitney’s family
