A Visit

I was able to make it in yesterday for a brief visit with Jeremy -- my first visit with him since he's been conscious. He looked just great -- thinner and weaker, of course, but amazingly well.

He is completely humbled by the response on this blog. We have no way of knowing how many people have viewed it since it started, but if you click on "Jeremy Updates" under Contributors in the upper left corner, you can see that his profile has been viewed almost 800 times (as of now). When I told him this, he said "I don't even know 800 people!" I'm sure no one knows just how many lives he's touched.

Before I left I asked him if he wanted me to post any messages from him. After he thought about it for awhile, he said "just that I'm aware of it (the blog) and it means a lot to me." We talked about how maybe when he's in rehab, he'll be able to have his laptop brought in and can come to the blog and post messages. Sounds like he is planning on doing that at some point in the future.

On October 23, the morning after Jeremy's accident, my 9-year-old daughter, Rachel, heard this scripture during our worship service at church. It reminded her of Jeremy, so she wrote it in a card for him that I delivered when I went down to the hospital later that afternoon to be with the Warriners.

"Now then, stand still and see this great thing the LORD is about to do before your eyes!"

--1 Samuel 12:16


Great, indeed!

Keep up the prayers -- so many of them have already been answered!

I am an old friend of Jeremy's. Please let him know I have been checking this blog often. He is in my prayers.

Colleen - I'd offered through a friend to print the entire blog w/comments and put it into a binder in date order .. that way Jeremy could read them all without needing the laptop (I know eventually he will use the laptop). I never heard back as to whether or not anyone was doing this. I'm happy to do it and could have it ready within the next day or two.
 
Jeremy-

I just wanted to let you know that you've been our prayers. My spirit leaps when I read about your progress.

Hang in there, bud. You are an inspiration to me.

Merry Christmas!

Jeremy,
I was watching Rita Rudner last night, it was so old it was sad...but she said something that struck me.
"I never get lost...I just change where it is that I want to go."

Hang in there.
