Saturday's and Sunday's are always very long, slow days for Jonathan because there is not much to do. They are our days of rest from therapy, but unfortunately that means nothing to do. There are not too many places you can go around this small facility and on a rainy day, that eliminates the chance to go outside for walks. Jonathan did have PT and OT this morning and did fine with both, especially with PT. He practiced his walking, used the parallel bars to work on knee bends and then practiced walking up and down some wooden stairs. After that we spent the rest of the day watching a movie and talking about when we get to go home. Jonathan is so positive and has such a good attitude. He desperately wants to go home and asks about it frequently, but he continues to work hard and anticipates that day soon to come. Jonathan is looking forward to spending Easter with his family. We have so much to be thankful for this Easter. Last Easter, Jonathan accepted Christ as his Saviour and was baptized. Now our entire family belongs to Christ. We would never have had any hope except what the doctors had to offer us, were it not for the gift of Salvation that Christ so willing gave to us when He died on the cross and rose again. Because He lives, we can face tomorrow, because He lives, all fear is gone. Because we know who holds the future, life is worth living, just because He lives.
If you do not know the God we serve, it is our prayer that you will come to know Him as your Saviour and Lord. He willing laid down His life to pay the price for your sins and He offers you the gift of eternal life that you will only find in Him. We are a living testimony of the power of God to save, heal and deliver. If just one person comes to know Christ because of what our family has experienced, it will be worth it all. If you already know Him as Lord and Saviour, we pray that you will join us in committing our lives anew to serve Him with all our heart, soul, mind and strength. Worthy is the Lamb!
