I am so happy that my son has come so far. I thank everyone for the prayers they have truly kept us going. We give God all the glory for this miracle and will continue to everyday He gives us breath.
Here is what God laid on my heart today. God has revealed to me a lot...today I was thinking about how I was so excited to get to the NICU and just spend time by Ethan's bed. God asked me "Are you that excited to sit by my throne?" I am learning that I should have the same desire every hour to see my Father in Heaven as I do to see Ethan. Wow! This is the most basic thing that God desires of us...to be with Him daily. How I have taken it for granted. I will never take it for granted again.
Ethan my son, I am watching you move and squeeze my finger. You are a miracle...I have prayed for you more than anything in my life. I will continue to pray like this the rest of my life. God used you to save me from my weak walk with Him. Seeing you move is one of the greatest moments of my life.
I am watching my wife look down on Ethan and she is showing the truest love I have ever seen. To imagine that that is how God looks down on us and loves us more than what I see in front of me is life changing. I've always known He loves us but never known how much. I will try not to hurt my Father any more and beg for forgiveness when I fail.
Children's Hospital Rocks! (this thought wasn't deeply spiritual but TRUE)
I have had some sweet time with God. My quiet times have been different every day. I've learned that God doesn't want us to just check Him off of our daily list. Some days I just prayed. Some days I read the word and prayed. Some days I was just silent (unless I was crying). God wants genuine time with us...not some routine that bores us and Him.
Bonnie and I love y'all...please don't stop praying Ethan has a long way to go we need you!
