In my earlier post, I explained the feelings we had in those first couple of days. In this post, I give you the picture of our last week.
The people that have entered our lives have been overwhelming. I better clean that up. The Army of warriors that are praying and fighting with us every step of the way have been so supportive, so loving, and it is absolutely compelling to know that there is so much GOOD left in this world. Most of us probably look at this world like I did two weeks ago. I thought this world was going to hell in a hand basket. Everyone had hate in their heart. That guy that flips you off because you unknowingly cut him off. The people that were just doing their job, but we thought we needed to tell them how horrible they were at it. The guy that looks at the guy on the side of the road asking for food or money thinking, I bet he isn't even trying to find a job. NOT EVEN KNOWING what those people have gone through that day, that month, that year, or even their whole life. The things we take for granted are countless. A good friend of mine gave a speech in the locker room my sophomore year. He basically told us all in that locker room to stand up! Stand up to our problems, don't run from them, and don't ever give up. Life has a way of putting up road blocks. When they aren't road blocks, life presents hills and valleys; sometimes mountains and ravines. The thing that keeps me looking up is Gods promise to me number one. HE will not give me more than I can bear. The other are the countless people and groups that have been constantly praying, commenting, calling, texting, and messaging. Those people have helped us tremendously. The therapeutic process has been easier with that help. Thank You! I cannot express enough gratitude. Friends, family, acquaintances, and people that do not even know us personally are spreading the awareness of this genetic disorder, and not only the awareness, but GOD! Over 12000 views in a little over a week for this blog. God is working. He is alive. He is showing me a life that I never knew. I feel like a blind man that God has given me another chance to see His people. I would have never been able to tell you when Steele took his first step. I mean... I may have been able to tell you he was 16 months old, but NOW... I WILL know the date, the time, and the very second HE TAKES HIS FIRST STEP! God has also let me have peace and understanding. This is hard to say or even type, but, God has a purpose for Steele, and whether he walks or rolls through life. GOD will heal him. Whether he is healed tonight, tomorrow, in 10 years or in 30. When he walks through the gates of Heaven Steele WILL walk. HE WILL run. HE WILL jump. God has Promised me that.
We go back to Shriners on January 17th. We are going to meet with the Geneticist. He is supposedly one of the best, and we thank God for that. We thank God for the blessings he has done in our past, the blessing he did for us today, and the many blessings he has in store for us in the future. One thing I know has been a blessing. Steele Christopher Becton.
We have been going to PT once a week. Watching Steele in those sessions has been inspiring. It confirmed a few things also: HE is a FIGHTER. HE is determined. HE is so so so smart. AND HE is ready to beat the odds.
Thank you again to everyone. We love and appreciate all of you. Keep Praying, Keep Fighting, and Keep your Faith because GOD WILL ANSWER.
