LOVE the game analogy, steve.  i did get all excited and i am not even a big fan of much of anything!  great pep talk!  ok, so here is how things are going.  mike is still staying healthy and day by day he is starting to gain some responsiveness.  he is starting to mumble a little and follow commands like saying AHH and opening his mouth for some mouthwash (on a spongy stick–still nothing to swallow).  he is starting to pick his head up, move his arms and bend his knee a bit.  all of this is pretty encouraging, in my opinion.  he is still keeping his eyes closed for the most part aside from a little peeking open occasionally.

this weekend i am going on our polar bear outreach weekend with high schoolers so mike’s parents will be helping Rafael take care of mike.  pray for a smooth and quiet experience for all of them.  pray that we would not continue to make friends with our amazing neighborhood paramedics.  pray for kids to see Christ in a new, amazing way.  pray for us.  thanks and love,  michelle

    I too truly enjoyed the football analogy, being the football junkie that I am. Tthanks Steve! And thanks Michelle for timely updates, so many of us check daily; morning, noon, and night. Also thanks for SPECIFIC prayer requests. Wow with the weather coming in “polar bear outreach” is an appropriate name for this weekend. May God bless your time with the high schoolers and Mike’s time with his parents.

    You are welcome, Michelle. And bless you for continuing your work with HS kids. You have so much to share, to offer. Bless you.

    Hey Michelle:

    Speaking from the grandstand, the first half has been tough, but so energizing for me. JoAnne and I would love to “sub” in for a few plays with fresh legs–maybe stay overnight with Mike or have your kids stay with us for a day or two–so you could grab a quick break to wipe off the sweat and breathe in some oxygen. Maybe drink a cup of Gatorade.

    Whaddya think?

    Hey Michelle:

    I’m glad I was able to see you and Mike recently and pray for his complete recovery all the time. Good news to hear hes back at home again and remember any help you need with the kids I’m just down the road and always willing to help! My cell phone is 630-842-8716. Bless you!

    Dear Zegarskis,

    I hope this weekend went well for you. I pray that it was peaceful and joyful. I am sure it is good to see Mike in his own home. As always I am praying for all of you. Take comfort that many people are caring for your son and his family. You are loved and prayed for by many that you do not know.

    “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Psalm 91:1-2

    May God continue to be your refuge and fortress and may you keep on leaning on Him.

    Love and prayers,

    Just wondering how Polar Bear was for you this weekend, Michelle, and how Mike’s parents did….I pray it was an invigorating and upbeat weekend for you….Hugs to all.

    I hope you had an amazing weekend on Polar Bear. I was just thinking about how much fun it was helping out with Hayley last year at this time. When I read your post the other day, I prayed that God would put a message on my heart to post that would encourage you. That night I had a dream that I was at your house and I was praying with you. In my dream, I remember praying that God would take your burdens from you and give you rest. I woke up the next morning (thinking it was a little strange to have dreamt a prayer) and opened my devotional for the day. The verse was Matthew 11:28-30, and it matched my dream so much that I figured it is what I’m supposed to share. This may be a verse you have turned to several times over the past few months, but here it is again: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will finind rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
