his own two legs

for the first time in seven years, ian left the house without a wheelchair. tonight he left with just the strength in his legs and his walker.

i asked him how it felt and he said he feels the independence.

so grateful that after seven years, he still moves on. so grateful that Ian and God continue to surprise me.

i love you, ian.

“He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man. The Lord taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.”- Psalm 147:10 & 11 Dearest Ian & Larissa, One time my pastor’s son said that verse 10 was his life verse. I was confused. But he meant to say verse 11. :-) God surely is blessing you two as you hope in His mercy♥ Love you both, ♫Gushing forth from The Rock before me is A Spring of Joy I see, all the way my Savior leads me…♫
