What a GREAT day!!!

December 11, 2010

What a day!  Nathan is talking, and making us laugh – literally all day long!  He has always been a “people person” and I am praising God that we are seeing that in his personality still – even after this trauma.  He has started to ask today – what happened.  It blew him away to learn that he has been here (Edward Hospital) for almost a week.  
The doctor was very encouraged with Nathan’s progress.  He walked with the nurse and his dad around the CCU unit.  Probably tomorrow, he will be on a lesser monitored floor.
Thank you all for praying!  It has lifted me up – when I haven’t known what to say, or how to cry out to Him

Psalm 103:17-22
17 But the love of the Lord remains forever
      with those who fear him.
   His salvation extends to the children’s children
    18 of those who are faithful to his covenant,
      of those who obey his commandments!
 19 The Lord has made the heavens his throne;
      from there he rules over everything.
 20 Praise the Lord, you angels,
      you mighty ones who carry out his plans,
      listening for each of his commands.
 21 Yes, praise the Lord, you armies of angels
      who serve him and do his will!
 22 Praise the Lord, everything he has created,
      everything in all his kingdom.
   Let all that I am praise the Lord.

Prayer Requests
Please pray again that Nathan would be patient.  He was insistent that he be allowed to go home.
Pray that Nathan would see again where this incident is God working in his life – wanting all of Nate… total surrender.
Praise God with me for all He has done – for the quick healing, and answered prayer.
Thank you again – for who you are, for standing in the gap, for loving us this much!  I am in awe!
Much love,


  1. WOW what a HUGE day, what a HUGE praise, what a HUGE GOD!! So happy to hear this report. Julie, you and Mark have been faithful in your trust in the Lord and in His faithfulness. You never gave up or doubted God, and He will never give up on any of you. You have been such a great reminder of staying steadfast in prayer and standing on His promises! I will continue to pray as you requested, and yes give God all the glory!

  2. Julie and Mark,
    I've been praying often for you all, even as I lift Nathan and you up through tears. Now I'm thanking God for the progress. But I'm continuing to pray for continued and full recovery, as well as strength and perseverance and peace and trust in our Maker and Healer God.
