God is Good !!

Katie's scripture for today :
Matthew 7:7 Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.

.. seeking Gods voice and finding comfort in the words of this scripture. Joyce Meyer was on TV this morning and she was talking about the persistence of knocking and asking God to answer us .. Katie feeling more than ever she needed God to speak to her and give her peace asked God to give her something to let her know that HE was still in control .. a sign ...
She went to the unit to see Ben and the nurse was leaving the room but went back in to cut down his sedation to see if he would be responsive to Katie .. she told Ben to squeeze Katie's hand and he did !!!! .... its ok to go ahead and cry .. tears of joy !! .. He repeated this several times following verbal commands .. She also noticed his eyes twitching and he is able to move his legs some when the sedation is cut down.. This is a huge improvement for him !! Praise the Lord. Plans are also being made for rehab .. Nothing concrete yet but things are in the works .. Please continue to pray that as he is brought out of sedation that his vitals signs will stay in a safe range, that he will have a peaceful state of mind and that everything will be intact.

Katie ... well, she just needs a good old gas attack .. PLEASE continue to pray for her intestines to get moving !!! .. She was very thankful for the chicken broth they brought her for lunch and is excited to get more for dinner ... you know she's hungry if she's excited about chicken broth and I don't mean Cambells ..

She sounded so good today .. like herself .. rested and refreshed . She said this was the best day she has had to far. God has rejuvenated her spirit and given her a renewed strength.
Again, thanks to everyone for all the prayer, faith and support .. She would love to have visitors - go see her - still in room 646.

More good to news to come .. I just know it !!!!
