Still Clinging to my Heavenly Father's Hand

I'm so grateful to say that Luke is doing great! I was just telling someone today I could get used to having a healthy child. Luke went to see Matt, the Rolfer again today and I'm so excited to say that he is responding great to these treatments. He has also been getting into the Hyperbaric chamber once a week, which has been great for his tone, though he still has a long way to go. He has been doing great with his new foot orthodics, they thought that he would only be able to tolerate them for a few minutes a day, but he has been wearing them for a couple hours a day. His Vital stim therapy is also going very well, he is doing a great job of swallowing and I've been trying to feed him orally more often through out the day, but to be honest this is extremely challenging since I haven't had to do this for so long, it is very time consuming, to say the least.

Tomorrow is going to be a big day. Our family is going up to Seattle to the Starlight Starbright 15th Anniversary Benefit Luncheon. They asked me if I would be willing to be interviewed by John Curley, who is the host for a local TV show here in Washington called Evening Magazine. I will be sharing Luke's story, how it has effected our family and letting the people know how Starlight has been a blessing in our lives. I would appreciate your prayers that I will be able to convey a positive message of hope and faith during these past few years.

This past week was challenging at times, I am still working on our application for Extreme Home Makeover. I thought it would be good for them to see a video of Luke before the accident and then after. Looking at all those picture last week brought many tears to my eyes, one of the days I cried out to God to ease the pain and He reminded me of all the blessings that have come out of Luke's accident. It's so good to have a Heavenly Father that comforts and reminds us of our blessings. I will try to post a copy of the video once we get it done.

I have to share one more brief statement from my favorite devotional, Streams in the Desert: Difficulty is actually the atmosphere surrounding a miracle, or a miracle in it's initial stage. Yet if it is to be a great miracle, the surrounding condition will not be simply a difficulty but an utter impossibility. And it is the clinging hand of His child that makes a desperate situation a delight to God. This has ministered to me on many days, I hope you too will find it comforting.

Love in Christ,
Luke's Mommy Sue

That is a beautiful passage from your devotional! How comforting that must have been for you to read. It sounds like you had a great time at the luncheon and I imagine you did a wonderful job at conveying your message! Rejoicing that Luke is so healthy and praying that he continues to do so well!
In His Love and Blessings,
