Update - Kathleen

I still can’t believe this has happened. I think more then the fact that the accident happened, it’s that I was in the same car and I’m fine. I just don’t understand. We were so happy to start the next part of our lives. We were about to take a trip driving across the I still can’t believe this has happened. I think more then the fact that the accident happened, it’s that I was in the same car and I’m fine. I just don’t understand. We were so happy to start the next part of our lives. We were about to take a trip driving across the US and then move to NC and get a puppy and start having babies and that all changed so quickly. It’s just so sad. With all the frustration of this and just wanting it to all be over, I have seen God do so many things through this already. It’s going to be a long road but I’m by his side and I’m going to love him through every moment.

Thank you everyone for understanding that it’s still too hard to get on the phone and talk with everyone. I try to be next to his side as much as I can and can’t and don’t want to have a phone during that time. Also, thank you so much for all the prayers and financial support. Hotel and food are an expense that with all the help it’s nice not to have to worry about them. We’re still trying to get a car until we can get my Honda here but God will provide!

I can feel all the prayers for me. Everyone is telling me that I’m so strong and their proud of me but for me there’s no other option. Caleb needs me to be strong. I find strength in the Lord. I’m reading through the bible this year and the other day I was reading in Isaiah about the Assyrians being wiped out and enemies being destroyed. After I was done, I said “Those weren’t very encouraging verses!” and his mom said “Yes they were because Cale has enemies that need to be destroyed!” then last night before bed I was praying and God gave me the picture of how we’re soldiers in this battle and we can claim victory in His name. Today I was reading through Judges and felt again encouragement with this battle and the enemy being destroyed. It fits so well since Cale is a soldier!

Thanks again for all the prayers! Love you all!

  2. For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord.Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jeramiah 29:11-13
    I love this passage! I hope that it brings you hope and peace! Kathleen this might not have been a part of your plan but it was a part of God's. Why? Well I don't know for sure yet! But I know that God is up to something BIG!! And in time we all will be able to look back and say, O I see now that's why we had to go through all of that. sometimes God answers prayers in ways we never thought he would. I love you dear friend! Cale will wake up! Keep the faith and remember God's promise! He has a plan and you are never alone!! Shine on! Love you! ~Tigger~

  5. I know in my heart that Cale will get through this. It really helps knowing that there are so many people praying for Cale's recovery. I thank each and every one of you for that. I also want to express my deep gratitude for all of the people that were able to help with the financial burden this brings to us. It is so wonderful that so many people are so caring in our time of need. God Bless you all. Kathy-Cale's mom

  6. We are all fervently praying for Cale, but also for you Kathleen. For strength, peace, and trust in the Lord, as you go through each passing day.
    Remember, "...those who hope in the Lord will find new strength, they will soar high on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not faint."

  7. Kathleen,
    I don't know you, but my daughter Sydney is Kristen's roommate so I feel connected through her. I've been praying for you and Cale, and a verse came to mind, "Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vine, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food. Though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord. I will be joyful in God, my Saviour." Habukkuk 3:17-18
    God bless you and Cale, and each and every person whose presence or prayers touches Cale.

  8. Take care and stay strong Kathleen. We don't know eachother but I am following the story and I just wanted to let you know that your family is in so many people's prayers. Only God truly knows why things happen. Sometimes you just have to trust His infinite wisdom. It will get better. Rest, pray, and remember that God and many people are there beside you.
