"Blessed be your name, on the road marked with suffering, though there is pain in the offering, blessed be your name"
This morning while driving to the hospital I couldn't get this song out of my head, finally when I arrived I pulled out my Zune and speakers and Adam and I worshiped together. I just had to be able to sing blessed by your name. I have struggled on and off throughout this journey... is it okay for me to have moments of sorrow and grief when I can see God in all of this? And when I listened to this song this morning I realized... there is pain in my offering, and I am on road marked with suffering right now, but with so much joy in heart I can say "Lord, blessed be your name!" There is joy in my sorrow.
Psalm 28:7 "The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song."
Adam's eyes were open for most of the day today, according to the doctors measuring scale he is still not responding... but I believe he is and I believe he looks at me and is focusing on me. He only responded to painful stimuli today and no commands, but it's only going to be a matter of time, I can feel it! The doctors had to medically induce sleep for him today because he wouldn't rest and his heart rate was elevated. He wouldn't rest today and then he became agitated and his body showed signs of stress... so with the help of some heavy narcotics the doctors gave him, let's pray he will get some rest. It's great to see him open his eyes, it's hard to ask for prayer that he closes them to sleep, but that's what Adam's brain needs most right now is rest to heal.
My favorite moment of the day was when I laid my head on his shoulder for awhile then I raised my head up, he then turned his head, lowered it and looked at me. I love this man and I know he loves me so much... his eyes told me!
