Freedom!

Rachel and I had another day out! We spent the day in Santa Cruz at the Boardwalk. We went on a ton of rides and had a blast! :) By the end of the day, our tummy's were ready to be done with all the fun...I think we're getting...old. Ha!

Before we left this morning, we went to the hospital for a bit to see Cale. He was in PT and working so hard! They're still really trying to work on weight shifting to help prevent so much scissoring. As far as how well he's walking, really does depend on the day. Sometimes, they have to help lots, but sometimes they are able to back off just a little and maybe only some what help out. I can't wait for the day that I can walk with him, just the two of us, hand in hand! :)

He was so sweet tonight when we got back. I know he has a hard time when I'm gone, and he misses me, but I really feel like he's being understanding that Rachel is here and we're spending time together. The next two days we'll be hanging at the hospital and having good times with Cale!

All day the word "freedom" was on my heart. There is so much freedom in surrender. In Christ we have freedom and are not bound by circumstance. I love that Cale also has freedom in Christ-even now. I don't have to carry the baggage and heaviness of what life is like right now. I can choose to give it all to Christ and let His joy flow through me and His love shine through me. I can choose to let His plans for our life be priority and surrender all my dreams, fears, thoughts, and desires to Him. Kathryn Scott has a song that I love listening to and always walk away feeling so humbled and encouraged. When I lay everything at His feet and take a deep breath, I can truly experience freedom. It's so much more than what the world has to offer!


At The Foot Of The Cross by Kathryn Scott

At the foot of the cross
Where grace and suffering meet
You have shown me Your love
Through the judgment You received

And You've won my heart
Yes You've won my heart
Now I can

Trade these ashes in for beauty
And wear forgiveness like a crown
Coming to kiss the feet of mercy
I lay every burden down
At the foot of the cross

At the foot of the cross
Where I am made complete
You have given me life
Through the death You bore for me

I'm laying every burden down
I'm laying every burden down

  1. I listened to that song many times. What a great reminder. Thanks for sharing it! :D

    Did you get to have a "date" with the CD I sent? Hope you and Cale will get to listen to some of it. I am still here, reading daily, praying, hoping, loving you guys.... :)
