Let The Walls Fall Down!


Basil is here! Yay! It was wonderful getting to see him! I was so nervous that he was going to be traumatized after the flight, but he was actually completely fine. He was so excited to get out of the kennel! Tomorrow Cale will get to see him, I'm super excited about that :)

Cale didn't have much therapy today. He had an ENT appointment this afternoon to follow up on the tumor and look over the MRI. I guess even with the medication they gave Cale, he still moved too much so they weren't able to get clear results. The doctor did say that he's taking Cale to the Tumor Board on Thursday and on Friday I'll meet with him again to go over a plan of action. I'm choosing to place the whole thing in God's hands and NOT worry. It's definitely a choice...

Cale has been making lots of progress, as you've all been reading, along with the progress he's already made, he still has so far to go. Sometimes, it feels like there's this big wall in front of him, keeping him from taking the next step. I feel like he's so close and trying so hard, but the wall needs to come down. I was thinking about the wall of Jericho this afternoon and how God had told Joshua that he had given him Jericho, it's king, and all it's mighty warriors. First God had something specific in mind; 6:3 March around the city once with all the armed men. Do this for six days. 4 Have seven priests carry trumpets of rams' horns in front of the ark. On the seventh day, march around the city seven times, with the priests blowing the trumpets. 5 When you hear them sound a long blast on the trumpets, have all the people give a loud shout; then the wall of the city will collapse and the people will go up, every man straight in." It was so strong on my heart that I need to pray the walls would collapse and that Cale would be able to have victory. Whatever God has for right now, I'm praying that I will be obedient, that Cale would be obedient so that we will be able to have a moment like Joshua. 6:20 When the trumpets sounded, the people shouted, and at the sound of the trumpet, when the people gave a loud shout, the wall collapsed; so every man charged straight in, and they took the city.

I'm calling for all fasters! :) April 22nd was the last day that I had asked everyone to set aside for fasting and prayer for Cale. I'm coming again to ask everyone to join me on August 10th, it will be 6 months since the accident. We've all witnessed so far all that God has done through Cale and with him. I know there is so much more that needs to be done; I want us to claim the city!

TJ took this picture last Saturday when he was here. I think it's my new favorite! I love it!


i love him.

    Count on me sweetheart. I can't fast all day because of my health but I definately will part of the day and pray pray pray all day. And as someone who has lived with a tumor for over 10 years I am believing good things for that too. We believe God is in TOTAL control for all things for both of you. And so so happy to see Basil. Love you both.,

This ius by far my favorite picture of the two of you since the accident. but my favorite picture is of him with the tootsie pop. Love & miss you both.

  3. When my son (named Joshua) deployed for the first time, it was a bad time for him in many ways. When we finally got hold of him, he said things were not good. I had felt the Lord told me earlier to walk around our house seven times and sing the song "Joshua and the battle of Jericho" but I didn't listen (bad me). After hearing from him on the phone I was out the door (it was cold and snowy) singing and asking God to tear down the walls for him. I did this for seven days and God did something for all of us, mostly him and I will always be grateful. I would be glad to do the same for Cale and you.
