It has been a while since we have updated on Zach! It feels weird to talk for him since he can do it in his own!! But I know there are so many people that prayed and shared Zach’s story and asked for prayers on his/our behalf that I wanted to give everyone an update. I asked Zach if he minded if I did an update and he looked at me like I asked a dumb question and said why would I care? For those of you who know Zach you know that is a typical Zach answer and I bet most of you can picture the look.
Zach has been making such great progress!! It is amazing to watch him accomplish all these things we were told he would probably never do again! Zach is an amazing miracle!! And God is good!!
We are so very grateful to all of you for all the continued support, love, prayers, hugs, cards, words of encouragement, and shoulders to cry on.
Zach has been driving (his truck and tractor), mowing lawns (mom and dads, his, and mine), hanging out with his friends and family, golfing, and working on the farm! He has graduated all of his therapies!!
We are so blessed to have all of you and we are so thankful for everything! I have heard from many people that they continue to pray for Zach and our family and we are so appreciative!
This week we could use some specific prayers for Zach as he has decided to move forward with surgery. His surgeons will be making his face a little more symmetrical, cleaning up his scar a little, and they are going to try a device that will help Zach hear on his left side. Surgery is always scary so pray for the surgeons and the entire team that will be caring for Zach. Pray for Zach for courage and peace as he undergoes this surgery on Thursday. Pray that surgery will go well and he will be comfortable and have little pain. Pray for Zach and my mom as they will be traveling early tomorrow morning down to Ann Arbor for Zach to get all his pre-surgery testing done. Pray that that testing goes well. Pray that there will be a room open at the Med Inn so my mom can be close to Zach so she will be ale to get better rest knowing she is near to him. Prayers for the rest of the family as we are unable to make it to this surgery because real life is still happening but it is going to be a long day as we wait to hear any news. Prayers of thanks that Zach has made it this far and that he is here!! Pray that ultimately Gods will be done! God has been good and He is in control!
God Is In Control:
This is no time for fear This is a time for faith and determination Don't lose the vision here Carried away by emotion Hold on to all that you hide in your heart There is one thing that has always been true It holds the world together
God is in control We believe that His children will not be forsaken God is in control We will choose to remember and never be shaken There is no power above or beside Him, we know God is in control, oh God is in control.
History marches on There is a bottom line drawn across the ages Culture can make its plan Oh, but the line never changes No matter how the deception may fly There is one thing that has always been true It will be true forever.
He has never let you down Why start to worry now? He is still the Lord of all we see And He is still the loving Father Watching over you and me watching over you...
watching over me.. watching over every things.. watching over you..watching over me.. every little sparrow..every little things.
