"Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him." James 1:12



{i love being able to stand with Ben again and take photos!!}

I will for sure be blogging this weekend on all the fun and wonderful things Ben has done this past week! I need to start blogging and updating more so that my "weekly" blogs are not so long! Some people wonder what I do all day long that I cannot get on and write a quick blog...well, folks I don't sit around that's for sure! Just ask anyone who has come to visit! By the time I get back to my room the only thing that is on my mind is SLEEP! I am trying to get better though! I just have to pick the day/night that I want to blog on and then do it!!

Here are a few photos to give you a sneek peek into what our past week looked like! Ben and I had two very special people come and visit us this week and we had a blast! I will get more photos and updates up this weekend!






In the last photo Ben's physical therapist let go of him and had Ben balance with the walker all on his own! Ben, as you can see, did amazing!!

"For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised." Hebrews 10:36

I haven't checked your blog for awhile and once again, I am amazed at God's goodness and His miraculous healing! You have been so faitthful to Him through your ordeal and I know you still have a long road, but like you said...Ben has come so far! May God continue to bless and restore!

Oh, my Friend, how wonderful to see Ben standing with you, fishing, and standing on his own. Father is GOOD!! I must tell you, seeing what Father has done for you gives me hope for my situation. Thank you for encouraging me in my faith. Too, thank you for encouraging me in my relationship with my husband. Much love, Marion

WOW! You guys are amazing! GT had a wonderful time, and was so happy to see and visit with Ben and you too! He had many great reports to share and was incredibly impressed with all that Ben has accomplished thus far, and so amazed at just what he accomplished this week! We are continuing to pray for both of you! Lots of love from the McKinneys.
