Breaking the fast: Happy Birthday Adam!

Psalm 118:24

This is the day the Lord has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.

We are celebrating Adams birthday (one day early)! I am sorry, but being a child of the 60s and 70s, I could not resist playing this birthday greeting!

Today, Adam in one day away from his birthday, and one day closer to a full recovery.

James 5:19-20

My brothers and sisters, if one of you should wander from the truth and someone should bring that person back, remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of their way will save them from death and cover over a multitude of sins.

Roper ends his book by writing, "To save a soul from death, to turn another to righteousness, to help someone rise above sin and shame to become better, wiser, more like God—who could ask for anything more?"

I have no way of knowing his total impact, but I believe that Adam has helped cover a multitude of sins. It may seem like he has been doing it the hard way, but the reality is that he has been doing it God's way. I know that he has made me better, wiser, and more like God (Yes, I do have much further to go).

Thank God for all that He has done in your life. Thank Him for the lessons that you have learned from Adam and Amy. 

Thank God for the miracle that He is working in Adam.

Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

Ask God to continue the good work that He has done in Adam. Pray that Adam would remember his birthday in 2013. Keep praying for a full recovery and keep praying that memories of specific periods of times would be restored.

Then, enjoy your breakfast!

In Christ's service,
Uncle Doug
