Yesterday was Easter, as all of you know.  Well, at church I actually sat in a pew next to Allison like old times.  This was the second time I’ve done that.  It was quite nice to actually sit in pew instead of my wheelchair.  I got to put my arm around my wife, not vice-versa.  Besides that, I could see because we were on front row.  So instead of butts, backs and heads, I actually could see the choir and pastor.

The choir sang the song called I Will Rise and guess what?  I stood up by myself.  I rose.  Of course, my wife was standing on my left and mom in the pew behind me and KB on my right.  There was no way they were going to let me fall and get another brain injury.   All I know is that I heard some Pentecostal shoutin’ from up in the choir and around me.  It was nice to finally stand up in church; well, to stand up anywhere other then Shepherd.  And, it felt good to stand and worship the Lord.  Yeah,yeah.  I hear ya!  It’s not like the Lord cares if I’m sitting or standing, but it just felt good to be standing.

On top of all that happened in church yesterday,  I had what I think was a pretty good day at therapy today.

And totally off the subject, we got Allison a new car finally; a Ford Flex.  It’s UGA colors too.  My dad, the Georgia Tech fan, was the one that pointed that out to me.

Until next time….

    Still praying for you and believing for your complete and total healing. I love reading the posts, so keep them coming! Blown away by your spelling, grammar and writing ability which is 1,000X better than many people with Master’s Degrees that used to work for me. Thanks for making me laugh too (and of course cry, always). Keep fighting you guys. You’re such an inspiration to us all.

    Danny – I think about you and Allison often and follow along with you. I am so happy that you are doing better every day. I know that it has been a while since we saw each other and Laura and I have since moved to Cleveland, OH, but I do keep up with you. Keep doing what you’re doing man.

    Yes sitting on the pew next to your wife and standing is a monumental accomplisment. I was inspired to read your story and you will have a lot more to be grateful for.
    Hang in there and continue to trust God. Looking to read another of your accompishments.
