real quick–because it is late–  Mike is getting his tube feedings again and that is going well.  he is also breathing on his own but with some oxygen so they will keep the tube in his throat just until he wakes up a bit more as a “just in case thing” for now.  he is tracking better with his eyes and was watching tv today but is still unresponsive in any other way.  his neurologist said it didn’t seem inappropriate for Mike to need extra time to wake up considering all of the extra variables with mike’s overall condition.  i think that is it.  i have to remember that even as my own feelings fluctuate– one day i worry, the next i am assured–God’s love, power, and providence do not change or depend on any circumstance.  He holds mike every day no matter what comes along.  amen.    –michelle

    That is so true. We are to have faith like children – leaning not on our own understanding (or analyzing everything)! This is easier said than done every second of the day. None of these circumstances can get in God’s way – in fact He will use them for good. We are looking forward to visiting next month.
    Love, Mitzi

    Dear Michelle,
    God is good, His Grace is a comfort, Be Still and Let God do all things in His time and His plan. You are so amazing my prayers are with you as they have been. If I was with you I’d just give a HUGE hug. Please know that hugs are being sent to you with every prayer. We love you lots!!
    Deb and Bob

    Hi Michelle,
    I started reading The Power of a Positive Mom by Karol Ladd that you leant me (thanks!). Here is a prayer that is in the book:

    “Thank you, God, that you have not left me alone to try to live by myself. Thank you for your Holy Spirit, who lives in me and helps me to be a positive, loving, peaceful, and joyful person each day. Your power – and not my own – is at work in my life, making me the woman you want me to be. Thank you for forgiving my sins and loving me through my weaknesses. Help me to be a positive mom today. In Christ’s name, amen.”

    Thinking of you and Mike and your whole family.
    Love, Rachel (and Mitch and Caden)

    It was so good to talk to you! Again, whatever you need please let us know.

    I thought I would send Scripture this time.

    “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances , for this God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

    Just remember that God is always with you.

    Love and continued prayers,

    okay, i have to post again. michelle, i have to tell you that i have been flooded by memories of mike recently. i see a guy, here at camp, and just the way he is wearing his hat backwards and standing just right, reminds me of mike. i can hear his voice echoing in my head (that surfer, southern boy voice) telling me that what i am planning is not good enough and that i can do better. memories of mike have been an encouragement to me, that i can do better and should do better because everything should be excellent – to represent Christ well. i guess i am saying that i am encouraged by my thoughts of your husband. he is on my mind and reminding me to push to be excellent. okay, i realize that that was poorly written, but i hope you understand the spirit of what i am trying to say. thank you husband for me for being who he is and for helping me to be a better me. love you…
