Mom Sneaks In For a Quick Word!

I have been meaning to write for months! I had read through all the earlier posts and was once again in awe of our amazing God's protection and provision. When I read the posts, it felt heavier to me than when we actually went through it. Your prayers carried us through those early days. Thank you. Remember when Dan couldn't sleep or eat and had unbearable pain? Remember the ventilator and tubes? As far as I'm concerned, best invention ever: the diaphragm pacer!

Can you believe Dan made it back to college and will graduate in 3 weeks? We are so excited!

Dan is doing incredibly well. The best physically, spiritually, emotionally since his accident. Our family can't say thank you enough to all those who care for Dan while he is at Cedarville.

Don't you love Dan updating this site with what he's doing and thoughtful insight instead of us just giving medical updates?!! I sure do! God has great plans for him.

Thanks for sticking with us when there was no update for many weeks!
We sure love you all!

The first scripture the Lord gave me in March of 2007 was II Chronicles 20:12 "We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on You." God is our ever-present help in time of need. Just look to Him!

Thanks, Debbie, for the historical retrospective. Yes, I do remember. God was good then; you "knew" it by faith even when you didn't understand it. And He is good now; the difference is, now you can see what only He could see back then. Praise Him for sustaining you through those difficult days.

Oh yes, I remember. Never will forget the phone call. Dan, your trust and faith in the Lord and the way you have handled these past 3 years have truly touched my heart. Never has a gramma been more proud. We are looking forward to May 1, 2010.

GOD IS GOOD!!! The Lord has used your family in an incredible way to minister to all the "on-lookers". Dan is an inspiration to so many people--his attitude and gratefulness is amazing. Debbie, your example of being a woman of faith has encouraged me throughout the years. (Thanks for the scripture/advise in the backyard!) We are excited to see how the Lord will use Dan as he starts a new adventure in his life! Love you all,Sandy Vivian
