Sunday Update

Sunday was an AWESOME day for Dave! We had church together as a family in the cafeteria in the hospital. Everyone just took turns sharing what was on their hearts and took turns encouraging Dave and letting him know how much he means to us and how he's impacted each of our lives. It was memories that we'll all take with us forever.

Something that was awesome was Dave read from a daily devotional that he has been reading for a while. It is called "Experiencing God Day by Day" by Henry Blackaby. I also use this devotional and would highly recommend it if you need or want a daily devotional. Anyway, yesterday's devotional was DIVINELY written for just a time as this. It's title is "Faith that Doesn't Ask". I won't go on and on but the bottom line is that it is about seeking the MIRACLE WORKER, NOT THE MIRACLE. We have to be at a place that we are in 100% trust in God that he is in control and know that he can work miracles in the blink of an eye and even if He doesn't we are not moved because we have a KNOWING that God loves us and is 100% in control. (perfect example is Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, when they said "our God is able to deliver us but even if He doesn't we will not serve your god".

We had a wonderful Lord's Day yesterday and we know it was a "faith-builder" for Dave.

Thank you so much for your prayers and support....PLEASE KEEP THEM COMING.
