For I Know The Plans I Have For You

Hey everyone!

Things have been a little crazy for me lately, which why I haven't blogged. My last post was about my friend Jeremy and his accident, asking for prayers! boy did you guys come through! I had so many positive and encouraging responses, and I am so grateful for all of them!

My mom and I went to AZ last week to visit Jeremy and his family. We mostly hung out with is family in the ICU waiting room all day, then went back to the hotel and did it all over again the next day. I didn't mind at all, that was what we went for. Jeremy was still in a medically induced coma, but they let us go see him in his room. It was surreal to see my friend lying in the hospital bed. I would pray for him while I stood in the door. There was good news followed by bad news. When one thing was better, another issue would come up. I was able to go see him once or twice a day. The night before my mom and I headed back to CA, I went to see him for the last time in what would be a while, and I started to cry. It always amazes me the things that make me cry. I don't really cry a lot and I'm usually pretty strong and hold myself together. I hadn't cried the entire time we had been there. But I think knowing that I wouldn't get to see him again for a while, until we could make it back out there, it just hit me. That and seeing him lying in a hospital bed just broke my heart.

But I know the Lord has a plan for him. He has Jeremy in His hands and His will will be done.

I really love Jeremy and his family, they mean so much to me, and I'm reminded of that every time I spend time with them.

All of your prayers and encouragement means so much to me! And I am so grateful! Since you were all so sincere, I wanted to give you the update from yesterday. Jeremy has opened his eyes. He's not responsive yet though, but he's off of medications and they are transferring him to another medical center tomorrow. He still needs a lot of prayer, but what you guys have done already has helped!

Again, thank you all so much! I am going to try to blog again tomorrow, I just haven't felt like anything I have to say about my life is quite as important as what has been going on with him. Everything else just seems to fall by the way side.Since he's on the road to recovery, maybe I can begin to write a little more again. But I can't promise I won't be saying a prayer for him in my blogs or that I will cease asking for prayer!

Question: Do you or have you ever felt like your blogs really pale in comparison to greater things happening in the world?

Yes, in fact other bloggers go through so many things that make my problems seem like small potatoes!

Keeping your friend in my prayers!

I know I'm a few days behind, but such great news so far. Glad you got to travel to see him. That's not always possible for many when loved ones are hurt, so it's great that you had the chance to do so.

I'll definitely keep your friend in my thoughts as he continues to heal, because I'm sure he will. Trust me, I didn't believe some things were possible not long ago, but a little boy in my town was run over by a lawn mower and they didn't expect him to live. But he's alive and walking again, and healing better than anyone would have thought. Miracles do happen, healing is real, and I'm sure your friend will, in time, be fine.
