Back In The Land of Tar Heels and Sweet Tea

"Life takes you unexpected places, love brings you back home"

For the first time in 14 months Adam has been enjoying life at home with Mackenzie and I and it has been wonderful!!!

Last week we made a difficult decision to pull Adam out of NeuroRestorative.  After a nearly 10 month tour of the I-95 corridor from Boston to Orlando, Adam, Mackenzie, and I are finally back home in North Carolina and settling in well!!! 

As we embark this new normal, this new season of our journey the Bible verse I am meditating on for our family, Adam, Mackenzie, and myself is Psalm 71:20 Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up.

Please be praying for Adam that he will not digress being at home, but only propel forward.  Pray for us to find the right outpatient therapy program for Adam.

We have been blessed by one of Adam's good friend's sister who has graciously given us the use of her home while she is serving as a missionary in South Africa until October.  This is a huge blessing allowing us to find the right home for Adam's needs.  Please pray for us to find the right home to buy and settle into once and for all! 

I will be updating our prayer requests in the next couple of days, thank you for your commitment in praying for our family.  Prayer is vital in this season of our journey.

My Sweet Amy, Oh my. Father sure has surpises up His sleeve....If He is Light, does He have a sleeve...HMMMMM. You know, my friend, there will likely be a few days of digressing. That's OKAY. Father moved you here. He doesn't move a person to take away what He has given them. He has wonderous plans for you all. I will pray for Adam, Mackenzie, and especially your strength of body and of spirit. It will be different for all of you, but most assuredly for you. Father will bring the right help to your door. He already has them chosen. He's just waiting for the right time to get them to you. He's also got the right home for you. It will be lovely. His homes always are. :) I love you, Marion I'll have to put a house warming gift in Mackenzie's package. :)

wow, that's a surprise...aahh i'm soooo happy for you guys!! home sweet home, after SO long. i dunno the circumstances, but i think adam will be alright, don't worry, he is ready for an outpatient program and i agree with marion, God doesn't take away what he has given adam. the first days at home can be a bit difficult for all of you, but especially for adam as 'being home' can take more out of him that you might think. But God is in charge and he will open doors for you and he will give adam EVERYthing he needs. I'm so happy for him that he finally made it home, he must be happy and I'm sure it will be a boost in his recovery, who wanna life in a hospital/rehab? Be patient with adam, he probably needs some time to settle, but then he'll be back on the road and with God's mercy there is only one direction, forward.

i wish you and your fam all the best and sure i'll keep you all in my prayers.
