about grace

Grace loves Tybee.
She loves our little vintage condo.
I hope one day soon she & Ivan will be able to come and stay there.
But, in the meantime, she has some work to do.

After almost six weeks in the hospital,
there is talk of her being released to go home.
She has been in acute rehab since Christmas Eve.
They have done about all they can do for her there.
She still has seven more weeks before she can bear any weight on her legs.
At that time she will have to learn to walk again.
Any further therapy will be done on an outpatient basis.

I talked to my sister Teri this afternoon.
She was on her way to prepare Grace & Ivan's apartment
for Grace's arrival possibly as soon as this Saturday.

Please continue to pray as this will be a major adjustment.
Her pain level is still very high.
She is having to bear all of the hardships of a traumatic brain injury
while waiting for healing.
Teri said that her spirit is very sweet and thankful.
We talked about all of the prayers that have gone up on her behalf
and how God's Spirit is working in her heart to keep her calm.

So much for this young, newly married couple to bear.
I sometimes wonder how they cope,
but I know that God's grace is poured out in abundance when it is needed.
All glory goes to Him for what He has done and will do with Grace.

Love the picture of the Tybee Lighthouse above.
I have walked that stretch of sand many a time.
When we lived there, I would walk around the bend,
marvel at the convergence of the Savannah River and the ocean,
and then sit on the big rocks 
and ponder the vastness before me.

The same God who controls the vast ocean
is the One who heals.
Nothing is too difficult for Him.
Grace will land exactly where He wants her to be,
and He will be with her every step of the way.
To God be the glory.
