We had a wonderful Lord's Day today. Jonathan slept good again last night and we got up and went to church this morning. Jonathan was able to walk in and sit in the pew with his family. It was great to see him singing the songs and visiting with people who were thrilled to see him again. We had a restful afternoon and went to have dinner at Jonathan's grandparents home for the first time, which is a Sunday night tradition for our family. This week will bring new experiences for Jonathan as he starts his new therapy classes. On Mondays and Tuesdays he will have ST, OT and PT and Thursdays he will have PT in the pool.
We are asking you to earnestly pray for Jonathan this week. Although he has come a long way, he still has a long road ahead of him. Pray for his attitude and state of mind about his therapy. He has a hard time understanding why he has to do therapy and sometimes that mind set can cause him to cry and be uncooperative. Pray that he will be able to handle his classes if they do not allow us to go with him. He has times of thoughtfulness when he thinks about whether or not he is 8 years old and if people see him as 8, or if they see him as a baby. He thinks that he might not be 8 because he doesn't talk like an 8 year old, or he has to sit in a booster seat in the car, or because he has to ride in the chair, or because he has to wear pull ups. All these thoughts are hard for him to sort through and understand. Please pray for understanding for him and for peace of mind. Pray that we will not baby him too much, as easy as that is for us to do, but that we will help him to return to being his age and feeling like himself again. Please pray for the therapist that God has already ordained for Jonathan. Pray that we can continue to touch people's lives with Jonathan's miracle story and be able to point people to the One and Only True God.
