I just have to Praise Him!!!!!

First the praise.  Chris went back to the throat specialist yesterday and his swallowing is at 100%.  The speech therapist told him he could eat anything he wanted to just take it slow with no distractions.
In the two weeks he has been here he has went from 114 to 131 pounds.  The doctor was very impressed.  I can see other changes in Chris, yesterday instead of saying that he was lucky, he said I'm blessed.  Also Monday a friend of his which happens to be a girl was on the phone and apparently she was talking seductively to him.  He told her that he had went to church on Sunday and adultry was a sin and he wasn't doing that anymore.  His language has changed, he slips up once in a while, but it's just so amazing at the work God is doing in his life.  He actually asked to go to church last night.  Our Bible study on Wednesdays has been on prayer, and Bro. Will looked at Chris and told him God isn't finished with you yet.  Your here for a purpose.  The devil tried to destroy you, but God had other plans.  If we had been in a pentecostal church there would probably been some shouting.  :)
Chris is in traffic court this morning he was given 3 tickets.  2 of which are minor (failure to yield right of way, and no seatbelt).  But the third one is a DUI, second offense while on probation.
We're praying God's will to be done, but in my heart I want him here with us.  God has started a work in him and He isn't done.
I will update the outcome later today.

My Mother-in-law Linda is having surgery in a couple of weeks to have a hernia removed .  I will let ya'll know later the exact date.

If at anytime you have a prayer request please leave me a comment or email me and I will add it to my list.   I have seen too many prayers answered to not believe prayer doesn't work.


  1. Praise the Lord for His work in Chris. Continuing to lift him up in prayer and also your MIL.

  2. Thena, I am shouting!!!! Praise Jesus for never giving up on us. Yes, prayer is so awesomely powerful. Please place my daughter, Carrie, on the prayer blog. We are praying for vindication and restoration.
