What a Journey of Praise!!!!!!

Oh my God, as I sit here thinking over these past almost 3 months, I just marvel at the journey we have been on.  I am just struck dumb (again :-)) of just how God is.  My heart is filled PAST capacity with praise, wonderment, excitement, love, and humbleness that I can't seem to stop crying! My heart just wants to burst out of my chest and I can't help but shout!! Man, no matter where we were, He was there - when we were scared He was there, when we were confused, He was there, when we were doubtful He was there, when we weren't listening, He was there. He was there in our laughter, He was there in our tears, and He remains here just with us - just a whisper away.  Oh my God, I worship and praise you for who you are.  Faithful, loving Father. Amen.

I can't speak for others - I can only speak for myself. He is a wonderful God, Amen.  How can you not believe??

This past week is yet another week of Him showing himself though His people.  Over this past week I have been getting "love notes"( LOL!) every day from God's people - just saying how much they are thinking and praying for us.  They did not have to do this - take the time to send us a note and bless us.  I am speehless with gratitude and just amazed at the kindness and love displayed to us. Some of these people I DONT EVEN KNOW! (Wow!) - all i can say is Thank You and count myself blessed by your kindness!  Another example of God showing Himself through His people are the ones in our lives who tirelessly give of themselves, their time, their love, their willigness to do anything to just help out no matter what. Although some of them may not be there physically, I know they are there.  The calls, texts, etc just seem to come in at just the right time. To tell the truth some I have been really surprised :-) Again, I count myself blessed for who they are and I love them to death :-)

This day has long been coming, but PRAISE THE ALMIGHTY, AWESOME GOD that I serve, Miata is scheduled to be discharged to HOME this week!!!!!  HALLELUJAH!!!!!!!!!!!!   AMEN!!!!!!!!!!  What Satan sought to destroy so nastily, God is using for HIS GLORY!!!!!!!!!!!!  And I know that what He has started He will complete to full recovery!! Amen!!!!!!

As we begin this next chapter to full recovery, I am just trusting God. Period. 

P.S.  Miata is BEYOND excited to come home :-)  Her progress at rehab has been nothing short of AMAZING (less than 1 week and they decided that she could be discharged to home, wow - note: although each case is different, the average stay is about 2 1/2 weeks of therapy).  That's just the God we serve.  Amen.

What exciting news to know that Miata made such amazing progress is such a short time in therapy. Praying that the return back home is going equally well or beyond. We continue to look for the great reports and praises.
