We came home because the doctor told us this is going to be a marathon and we would need to be ready and rested tomorrow morning. It was hard to leave my little buddy.
Everything at home reminds me of him, even the quiet. He is so quiet. His golf clubs are sitting on the loft ready for him to come and practice as he watches the golf channel.
His room. Someone came and cleaned it up so it isn't messy any more. Thank you to who whomever did that.
His car was sitting in the driveway. He loves his car. I miss Grant.
In the hospital our family was reminded of how the church body is supposed to work. We were far more overwhelmed by 75 or 80 people showing up to hang out and encourage us and be with Grant than by the weight of what we are facing right now. Thank you Grace Bible Church, one28 and Grace Academy for loving our Grant and loving us enough to spend the day with us. You don't know how much it means.
Tomorrow is Easter morning. The day Jesus rose from the grave. The day Christ conquered death. I want Him to raise my son up again, but I don't know what He has planned.
This gives me a small glimpse into the Father's love for His Son. I wouldn't want to give up my son for a bunch of people who hated Him. BUT our good God was pleased to give us His Son that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. We have been given so much more than we deserve.
Please pray for Teresa and Garrett that they would be able to erase much of what they witnessed up close and personal. Teresa said there is no way she could have done what she did today w/o Garrett's help and strength. Dad's are supposed to be there when things like this happen to "fix" it, but I wasn't there. It's a good thing I have an awesome wife and 2 great sons. We'll certainly keep Kimmy as well.
Pray that the doctors will know exactly what to do in every situation. Grant is an unusual case and not everything works normally on him. Pray they would have insight into things they don't even know about. God can do that for Grant.
Pray that God would not be finished with Grant, because God finishes what He starts.
We love you Grant and there are many people praying for you all over the world tonight. How good is that?
Weeping for my son, but trying to be joyful in His Son,
