We have had the most incredible weather the last 2 days and I have been so thankful and grateful that I am right here in the beautiful state. I am so grateful for the amazing fall day we have had.
Adam had his first piano lesson today, Jan taught Adam how to play the beginning part of Joy To The World, and he did awesome! Jan said she will take Adam a keyboard he can use while he's at Learning Services and she'll come work with him.
We hit another victory this evening... in a conversation where I could tell Adam was thinking clearly, he tried to tell me he forgot his truck. He said he needed to get his truck. I asked him what color his truck is and he said red (which is was)! I explained to him that he had an accident and has been working hard to get better. I explained that I had to sell his truck so that we could buy a house, when I asked if that was okay, he said he thought was a good choice. This is really the first time he was asking questions about anything before his injury... I just got so tickled that I keep seeing him slowly, but surely coming out of the fog he's been living in for so long.
Tonight Mackenzie and I attended our first brain injury support group. We have been very active with the brain injury association of North Carolina... but this is the first time we have attended the support group. I am so thankful for such a great community that we live in and for the amazing resources we have available to us. Please consider joining the brain injury association of North Carolina http://www.bianc.net/index.html this helps provide families like us with much needed resources and information to better understand and take care of our loved ones.
Tomorrow Adam gets admitted to Learning Services as a full time resident. He will be living there until their licensing comes through... I spent most of the weekend being pretty pitiful, but yesterday the Lord grabbed hold of my sorry self and asked if I was going to get in the way of His greater plans and His greater purpose. Then I started to think... there must be someone he has for us to meet that we wouldn't otherwise get to. I am now excited to see what the Lord has in store for us, I am excited to see His continued hand healing Adam and I am excited to see how He will be using Adam's stay at Learning Services to continue to win hearts for Him and to progress Adam along further. God's plans are perfect and I am surrendering to His will and to His great purpose. God is so good, He is so faithful, and He is so mighty.
I am excited to see what God is going to do, and I am continuing to pray for wisdom and peace as we take the next step in this journey. I am praying that the Lord's will, will be done. I know this too shall pass, and that Adam's time as a resident will be temporary, but I am still going to miss his arms wrapped around me every night, I am going to miss spending normal family time with him... please be praying as we reenter the life of living in a facility. This is a very challenging way to live and a way of life we never thought we would have had to go back to... but God has other plans and we are going forward in obedience. Pray for the caregivers to be diligent in their work as they care for my man. Tonight I am not leaning on my understanding, but I am trusting in the Lord with all my heart. I know His hand prints are all over my man and I know they will continue to be so.
I am praising the Lord for all the healing that has taken place, the healing that is happening in this moment, and the healing that is still yet to come. He is so good. Ezra 3:11 With praise and thanksgiving they sang to the Lord: "He is good; his love to Israel endures forever." And all the people gave a great shout of praise to the Lord.
