I just read the following  on Sonja's blog and it inspired me to tell what has been going on lately. 

When God is going to do something Wonderful
He begins with a difficulty
If it is going to be something very wonderful
He begins with an impossibility

Back in May it seemed like it was one thing after another.  That no matter how hard I prayed things just didn't get better.  Then Chris being in the wreck in July added more stress.  Finally I began realizing that something wonderful must be happening.  And the devil is mad and was coming against us full force. 
Well first Scott was asked to start being the substitute for an adult Sunday School class at church.  Then I was asked to teach 1st-3rd grade Sunday School.  I had always taught Sunday School at the church we attended before we moved.  But we have only been at this church a little over a year.  But I accepted it and I am LOVING it.  Then Scott was asked to be a Deacon, in which the Pastor has approved but the church votes Sunday night.  I look back now and think that is why the devil was fighting so hard to destroy our marriage.  Because if he did, most likely Scott would fall out of church and his children would never have the opportunity to be in church.
Now to bring ya'll up to date on Chris.  I'm sure there may be some that don't agree with what we are doing.  Because of his drug problems in the past.  But if God opens the doors I'm not going to close them. 
We got a call from the hospital Wednesday afternoon and the therapy that Chris needs can be done now as an out-patient.  We spent all day yesterday at the hospital talking to his doctor, physical therapist, speech therapist, and case worker.  He still can't swallow so therefore he needs 24 hour supervision.  Because in his mind he thinks he can eat and if alone, he would choke to death.
He doesn't have insurance to cover medical costs once he's out of the hospital so it would be our responsibility.  We're looking into a couple of options but if anyone knows of medical assistance please let me know.  He could be disabled up to at least a year.  They can't tell us when he will be able to swallow again.  Just that it takes time. 
Therefore since I don't work outside the home most likely he will be coming to live with us.  In which that will put him in a Christian home, something he has never known before. 
He still has a long way to go, he has a body of a 19-year old, but his mind is probably about that of a 10-year old.
There is still consequences to be faced when he recovers, but I know God has it all in control.
Thank you to each of ya'll that have prayed for him.   Sunday will be two months since the phone call that they didn't know if he was going to make it or not. 
And now we're at the point of him getting out of the hospital.  I stand amazed at what God is doing in his and our lives.
