Forever With The Lord

1 Thessalonians 4:17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.

Isn't that an amazing scripture verse?!!!  I love the promise that we will be with the Lord forever... I can't wait to meet the Lord in the air... what a great meditating scripture verse.  I can't wait to meet my Maker.  Please take a moment and just reflect on this scripture verse... are you ready to meet your Maker?  I sure hope so!  He's saved you from the fiery pits of hell, so that you can have eternal life with Him in heaven,  He gave His life so that you can have life abundantly, life eternal... and He's doing a work in you every day to draw you closer to Him.  I pray that you will all know the joy and peace I have in knowing my Savior.

It's only with God's hand that Adam is where he is today and has come as far as he has.  I am rejoicing in all that God is doing in Adam's healing.  Adam had another good day today.  He was quite determined today, he knew what he wanted and he fought to get it his way today.  It was so fun to watch him fight for what he wanted.  When Adam returned from speech therapy I asked him how it went and he said "it went very good", then Brooke said that he was right, he had a good session.  He was able to let her know that he was in the hospital because he had a motocross accident, way to go Adam! 

In physical therapy, Anne put Adam back up on the treadmill, with the lite gait harnessing Adam just incase he was unable to hold himself up for the whole time... but he did amazing.  He didn't even fall back on the harness once, and it's the first time he's been on the treadmill that he hasn't needed Anne to weight shift so that he can step properly, he was on the treadmill all by himself and did all the work.  I am SO proud of my man... isn't he amazing?!!!  Adam walked for the entire session!  Go Adam!

When judging how much Adam is able to do transfers from his in and out of his chair, bed, and the therapy mat... the determine it by saying whether or not it was a max, moderate, or min. assistance and then by 1 person, or 2 if it takes 2 people.  Back when we were at WakeMed in Cary, I was told that Adam would most likely always be a max assist of 2... today Adam defied that diagnosis... he was cleared as min. assist of 1!!!!  That means Adam's doing all the work!!!  GO ADAM!!!  This was huge, I am so excited!  In occupational therapy, Eri worked with Adam on transfers, then she took him down to the gym and really worked with Adam on stretching his hips, back, shoulders, and  neck.... for the rest of the day he was so relaxed, it was great to see him get such a good stretch.

If I could ask you all to pray for Mackenzie the next 3 days, she will be taking the MA assessment test (for my friends in NC, this is similar to end of grade testing).  She hates tests and they tend to stress her out a bit so if you think about it please say a prayer for her.  Thank you for praying for our family, it means so much to all of us.  God hears your prayers, Adam's miracles are evidence of that!

Thank You for continuing to show us Adam's healing, and Amy's healing in her back. Father THANK YOU that you Son was willing go through what He did, so we could say "By His stripes we are healed!!" Amen and Amen (Marion)

Good Luck to Mackenzie! Our family can relate to Mackenzie. My daughter takes the FCAT the week of April 11th. We will pray that Mackenzie does not have to take the FCAT (Florida's version) when you move to Orlando.
