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….
