june 7th – update

I want to begin tonight by thanking all of you who have e-mailed, blogged, sent cards, and left notes at the hospital. They have all been read to Kent and enjoyed by me – some many times over. You have been faithful to pray and to encourage our hearts, and you are precious to us.

Kent was moved to a room today. I teased him that ICU nurses asked that he be transfered, because they couldn’t control his talking (loudly, since his hearing aides are not in) or his energy. Actually, the miracle goes on, and he did very well during the transfer. He has walked, and even took a shower. He eats well, but still has severe intestinal upset. That is SLOWLY getting under control – we think. A respiratory therapist let it slip that the dr. mentioned possibly sending him home tomorrow! We’ll see. It seems unlikely to me, but his whole rapid improvment has seemed unlikely to me! It is just a miracle. So I won’t be surprised. If you are coming to visit tomorrow, call first to make certain that he is still here!

Webster’s Dictionary defines a “miracle” like this: 1. an event or action that apparently contradicts known scientific laws, and is hence thought to be due to supernatural causes, especially to an act of God.  2. a remarkable event or thing – a marvel.  3. a wonderful example.

If what we have lived through is not a miracle, than there has never been one. You have not only been a part of it, you have caused it by your obedience to God in seeking Him and His power in prayer. You have knocked on Heaven’s door in our behalf, and you have unleased His mighty power. This series of miracles, strung out over weeks of time, has truly been an example of God’s grace, mercy, and love. It is remarkable to think that God lets us tiny humans participate in appropriating the power of the God of the Universe, but He does. It is humbling to be able to pray, and even more humbling to be the object of it. You have blessed us with your time, your emotions, and your faith. You have never given anyone a greater gift. We will never forget you, and will always cherish your gifts to us.

We love you,

Kent and Davidene

    We rejoice with you in the “miraculous” healing proces that is ocurring as the Lord restores your health!

    We consider it a honor to be included on your prayer team and we will continue to pray for your complete recovery.

    Our relationship, dating back to 1998 when our mutual friend Bruce introduced us, has been a series of blessings in many special ways. I will always treasure the monthly meetings that I had with you, Jack and Bruce.

    Thank you Davidene for the loving, caring and encouraging role that you so beautifully provide. What a partnership the two of you model for us all!

    Your friends in Christ,

    Harold & Linda Armstrong
