Well, it's 13 days until Christmas -- and my Christmas present is already here! He's in room 3602 at Edward Hospital!! Thank you Lord for answering our prayers! Little by little Nate's personality is coming back. He's done some walking again today, and as the day progressed, he became more and more irritated by needing assistance or "permission" to do certain things. He does not understand that we have to take things S-L-O-W-L-Y!!!! He wants to come home. Unfortunately the Bible doesn't say much about brain injury, but I think Mark and I and others can take a note from the Bible about patience:
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness.
I Thessalonians 5:14
14 And we urge you, brothers, warn those who are idle, encourage the timid, help the weak, be patient with everyone.
3 because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. 4 Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
I believe that God is showing Himself through this transformation... but we need to be available to be His hands and feet - while Nathan continues to heal.
1. Please pray for rapid recovery, and discernment for the first steps to go forward.
2. For Mark and I to be patient with Nate -- and show unconditional love
3. For the process to be quick
4 As in all things, give thanks!!
Show us your glory Lord!!!
