Hi friends, just another monsoon in Rhode Island!  Nicole says that it has rained steadily for three days, which has kind of impeded the completion of the Devo Wing!  They do have the bath and shower all hooked up, and the two tv's are hooked up, so the key items are ready to go!  Now we will start buying new therapy gear, including a new tilt table, probably a new hoyer lift, move the new therapy table in there, and make the place look like Spaulding on steroids!  The therapy room is a mint green, and Devo's bedroom is a light blue!  Heck, I might even feel like working out when I get in there, but I hope not!  My point being, that with all the new equipment, and some new therapists, AND, room to breathe, Devo will have every opportunity to progress as far as therapy, exercise, and stimulation can allow!  When it's all said and done, though,  Devo's state of recovery is solely dependent upon the plan that God has determined long before the accident!  He knows every hair on our heads, He knew us before we were in our mother's womb, and He has our lives all charted out, long before we live them!  

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”

(Jeremiah 1:5)

It is pretty obvious that only God knows the plans he has for Devo! But God has promised that His plans are to give us hope and a future!  And knowing this keeps our hopes high and confidence soaring!

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. (Jeremiah 29:11)

Tomorrow, being perhaps the first day in the addition, also marks his first visit by a "student" therapist, who very conveniently, was sent over by her mother, who just happened to meet Charlotte at a yard sale last weekend!  Do you think God might have orchestrated this little meeting?  You wouldn't be alone if you did, because we all do!  Devon will welcome the opportunity to get started in his own brand new therapy room, with a brand new student therapist, and perhaps a new, or renewed brand new, eager attitude!  We are all excited for the potentiality of what lies ahead for Devon, both from the world of medicine, and more importantly, from the supernatural world of the One who already knows the outcome!  Jesus has many, many more plans for Devon, and we will stay positive and faithful as we await for His next move!  Goodnight, and God bless you all!  Dana
