Amazing Blessings

It's been 4 months since the accident. It's crazy to think that I'm still going through this, Cale is still going through this. I was so sure that by now we would be going through rehab and Cale and I would be laughing together again. It's not quite how I pictured today would be, but of course none of this is what I pictured! I was thinking on Monday about how this was a big week, 4 months is a long time, and I wondered how I was going to handle it. Was this going to be a hard day? Would it be full of tears? Would I be able to get out of bed? Well, to my surprise, I'm not only having a great day, but I'm so overwhelmed with thankfulness and blessings! I'm definitely not going to say it's been an easy journey so far (as you all have read!) but as I look back through it, God has completely been with me and gone before me through every step. He's given me strength when I felt so weak and small, He's given me peace from the very first night, He's provided family when mine is across the country, He's provided joy when I was feeling robbed of happiness with Cale. He is amazing, truly amazing!

The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace. Psalm 29:11

Here is Cale 4 days after the accident

Here is Cale today Praise God!


My heart is so full of love and thankfulness for the Lord. I'm still sitting here amazed that so many are STILL praying for us.

I had my meeting with Beth today and as I was looking over the report with her, I was noticing so many encouraging things! Wording has changed, like, emerging response, increased tracking, increased use with both hands, increased awareness, with his sitting balance, it now says moderate assistance rather then max. How exciting!

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27

Peace that He gives is definitely not anything the world can give!

  1. A miracle in the works! Cale has come so far in his recovery! I am soo glad you met a new friend whom you can relate to and as you said you have been where she is at now, and she has that extra shoulder to lean on! It is soo wonderful that you both have such a strong undying relationship with the Lord! You and Cale are always in my thoughts and prayers and I will be praying for Amy as well! =D

  2. God has performed so many miracles and there are still more to come. I will pray for Amy and Adam every day just as i pray for you and Cale. I am so proud of you for being so strong and for being there for someone else. God definitely had a plan for you staying longer. Love to you both!

  5. Hi Kathleen,

    I wanted to send you a note to encourage you by letting you know how encouraging your expressions of faith have been to me. I am constantly amazed anytime that I read the blog and see your smile in pictures, and your smile in your words. I do not know what God has planned for you and Cale, but I know that He is a loving God, and I am certain that your praise and love for Him will be sent back to you 1,000,000 times over. You are very truly an inspiration, and Cale is a very blessed man to have you as his wife. I pray in anticipation of hearing Cale's testimony about his complete healing from his own lips. Yours In Christ - Will
