A Special Touch

Well, this week has definitely been a challenge! Yikes! Those times will come, but I have to keep pushing on!

There were two moments today with Cale that were so great! First, Cale always plays with my rings on my fingers. I call him a pirate because he slips them off, puts them on his fingers, and then doesn't let me have them back with out a battle. He stays so calm too, it's like he knows he has them and he's stronger then me. Today when he was taking them off and I was putting up my usual fight, he grabbed my hand with his right (the one he doesn't use much) and then with his left hand he took them off my fingers...he used both hands together! He also won the battle :) mostly because I stopped fighting as I watched in amazement!

Later, while I was sitting on the bed, Cale reached up and touched my face. Not the same touch that he always does, this time it was with his finger tips and he was feeling every detail in my face. He did it for 10 minutes straight, just moving across my eyes, nose, cheeks, lips, ears, and hair. The next 10 minutes were off and on, playing with my hair and then touching my face again. I made sure to tell the nurse right away. It was so special! I really felt like he knew it was me. I was trying to get him to respond to commands while he was touching because at the time I felt like he was so much more awake. Nothing yet, but I'm excited to see if this next week will show anything.

What a sweet kiss from the Lord. He picked me up off the dirty floor, brushed me off, and gave me a kiss to mend my broken heart. He truly is with me, holding me, loving me more then words can describe. I'm so blessed!

  6. Kathleen, I have cotinued to be in prayer for you. How encouraging to have that touch from your husband after so many trying moments this week. God spoke all creation, into existence, except when he created us, those created in His image. Touch is so important to healing and memory. Keep fighting for your husband. I will continue to pray for your strength and Cale's fight and brain to regenerate to God's glory!
    God bless you! Carolyn Thompson, member of Salem Baptist

    How beautifully special. I am still so amazed by all that God is doing in Cale and all of your grace and dignity. I pray I have one tenth of your courage as I face my own battle.

    For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven an don earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you , being rooted and established in love, may have power together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge- that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Eph 3 : 14-21


    We love you and pray every day.
