Stephen's Update 12/12/09

Hello from the trenches! This is Stephen, just wanting to say hello and thank everyone for the incredible outpouring of support that my whole family has been receiving since the accident happened. Prayers, meals, yard work, child care, hugs - it's been beautiful to see the way people have come together and stood with my precious family. I've been trying to work hard so that I can be home with them soon, but it's blessed me beyond words to see all that's happened since that night I was nearly called home. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for all your prayers, your kind thoughts and your incredibly helpful actions. As my wife has said (in her wonderfully written posts), so much has been done for us and given to us that we could never pay it back, so we will attempt to pay it forward. We love you all!

It's so good to hear from you directly. It's been amazing to see the miracles that God has done on your behalf, and your family's also. I don't think he is done with the miracles. I can't wait to see you walking, maybe even with no limp. That's what I'm praying for; a recovery that knocks everyone's socks off. Know that you are being prayed for daily. Strength for each day; that's your daily bread.
Love you brother.

I know you like Rice Crispies, but that doesn't mean you should have turned you body into a loosely-packed bag of cereal! There but for the grace of God goes you!
Talk to you soon!
