From Cinnamon, Autumn’s mom:
“Autumn has had a long day already. They got her out of bed and sat her in a chair. OT and PT came and helped her take a couple of steps with a walker. She very much acts like a child who is sleepwalking. She doesn’t open her eyes but halfway and she told Scott that he looked familiar. It’s been hard on our hearts because she hasn’t given us an indication that she recognizes our voices. She’s still very confused and fidgety…wanting to pull at tubes, etc., which is a result of the brain trauma.
Last night I talked with the nurse who cared for her when she first came in. She told me that it is truly amazing that Autumn is even saying words at this point. She said that last weekend when she saw Autumn she did not expect a good outcome! Truly we have witnessed the merciful hand of The Lord!
I’ve been reading John to Autumn because I told her if we are to press in to Christ, we need to know who He is. I was reminded today of what we had read a few days ago. . .
“He was in the world, and the world was created through Him, yet the world did not recognize Him. He came to His own, and His own people did not receive Him.” (John 1:10-11 HCSB).
As I wait for Autumn to recognize us, her parents who love her more than anyone on earth, it was an insight on how deeply grieved The Lord was when His own creation/children not only didn’t recognize Him, they also rejected Him! Is this what it means to share in Christs sufferings? Maybe. We continue to wait hopefully and expectantly that He will do amazingly, exceedingly more than we can ask or think in Autumn and Elijah’s lives.
Already He has been giving her amazing inch stones and we are praising The Lord for His continuing miracles!”
Watching all of this… I am just so amazed at the Nature of our Father. He is so ready to sustain us. “Behold, the arm of the Lord is not shortened that it cannot save; neither His ear heavy, that it cannot hear.”
He is hearing the cries that are being spread out before Him from all around the world on behalf of Elijah, Autumn, and their families… Keep fighting with them!
