Moments like this remind me how much healing is still to come. Expressive aphasia is no joke. Most of what comes out of Jon’s mouth is jargon, but then moments like this happen. I know God is still at work.
As we approach the one year mark since the accident (this Saturday) many emotions are stirring up. But at the same, I feel so much clarity, acceptance and peace with our new normal life. This past year has been a whirlwind of a journey and I hope to share more about this time in the future. Each day the Lord is reminding me of the miracles along the way and how to share them with the world.
In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
1 Peter 1:6–9
