Perseverance- Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. Romans 5:3-5
God didn't allow this in our lives for us to come out unchanged-what we're going through everyday is building character in both of us! Perseverance isn't just given, it's learned.
Strength-He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Isaiah 40:29
Cale is tired. He's been in a hospital for so long and they are always coming in to do something with him. There are so many noises and other things that wake him up all through the night, and he still has to get up every morning and do therapy's! Even when he gets a nap during the day, he always gets woken up for something! His body is so weak and tired.
Motivation-It is easier to go down a hill than up, but the view is best from the top. ~Arnold Bennett
It would be a lot easier for me to just take him home as soon as he can and take care of him for the rest of our lives-I would do it. I also know that after working really hard, it's going to be so much more of a beautiful life, if we can make it to the top of the hill!
As I was trying to fall asleep last night, God put on my heart these specific things. I always have a note pad and pen right by my bed, which is a good thing! Please continue to join me in praying for Cale!
It's been a good Saturday. Sleepy, but good :) There was a car show in the hospital parking lot today. It's put on every year by Reveille, which is also one of the groups that help with Friday night dinners. It was fun! Cale went out during ST and even though he didn't last long, he seemed to enjoy it. At the end there was a parade and all the cars drove by! There were some cool cars! :)
Basil also got to come for a little today. He's getting so big! Cale fed him some treats too :) We've been cuddling at the Fisher House for a while now, perfect end to the day!
* I think made it confusing when Cale's birthday is. Sorry! It's September 18th! So soon!
