The Power of Prayer

To God be the glory, GREAT things HE hath done. Christie is coming HOME. I would like to thank everyone that has been following this blog and Christie's progress over the past 3 years. If you have learned anything from this blog I wish it to be that GOD ANSWERS PRAYERS. I have learned that it is in his time though and not mine.God is in the miracle making business as he has proven not only from the Bible but from Christie's life as well. I hope every one knows that they can look to God for help when it seems there is no hope left.
I will not be posting anything else on this blog once Christie comes home. I expect and hope that she will be home by next weekend. If you would like to stay in contact with me after this blog stops, feel free to email me. put Christie's name in the subject bar and I will reply as best I can.
Thanks again everyone for all that you have done and for all your prayers.
God Bless,
Becky and Christie

Nothing but Time

I hate waiting. I talked to Christie and she still begs to come home. She said " Please come get me". I would love nothing more. Christie asks me where Xander is. She talked to Xander on the phone. They had a great time talking. Christie doesn't understand why Xander is here and she isn't. Hopefully the judge will let her come home soon, she has waited long enough. Christie is still asking about her Joy Bear. I hope to get that back to her soon as well. She has had it her whole life and then they take it from her. Christie continues to tell me she is " sad and lonely." I know she is but if we can just hang on til July!!!!!

Spring is here

I had a great day with Christie. We went out front of FCC and had a picnic.Christie got to choose what she wanted to eat as she doesn't get to eat anything except nursing home food. She choose KFC. We had the chicken, mashed potatoes, slaw, macaroni and cheese and biscuits. I have never seen someone enjoy a biscuit with gravy on it as much as Christie did today. It was great. I can't wait to see her tomorrow.Court is Thursday. Please continue to Pray.

Thank you everyone for your emails and concerns over what is happening. As you know we where to go to court on March 4th. To see if Christie would be able to have any of her rights reinstated.Then on the 17th and 18th we where to have the case that would tell if Christie would remain in nursing homes for the remainder of her life or to come home. As it turned out the doctor that was going to evaluate Christie was unable to meet with Christie until the 4th. As a result the court for the 4th was canceled and rescheduled for the 17th. At this time I haven't gotten a new date for the hearing that was to be held on the 17th.
Christie seems to be doing well. I hear she is showing her humorous side that I have known she has always had. I do know she goes on field trips with her class on Thursdays. They go to parks and to Wal Mart. I don't know how she is doing grade wise as I haven't received any report cards or progress reports this year from Richard and the school per Richard's request can't share any of that with me.
Christie continues to tell me how much she misses Joy Bear and asks me do I have her. She says she is lonely and sad and that she misses Joy Bear. There are other things she tells me but as this update is getting lengthy I will stop here. Please continue to Pray for the up coming court dates.
Thank You,
Becky and Christie

About Christie

I am Becky, Christie's Mom and I want to tell you about Christie. Christie is a beautiful, outgoing, and caring person. She loves outside, turtles, frogs, birds all kinds of animals especially horses. Christie has talked about maybe becoming a vet. Christie was injured in a car wreck on April 19,2008. Christie has a severe globial brain injury where they had to remove the whole left tempral lobe. This blog is to share Christie's story. She is a fighter, and she is making a recovery that no one thought she would.


This is a truly BEAUTIFUL piece. Please Read this at a slow pace, digesting every word and in not hurry... This is a treasure...
>For those lucky to still be blessed with your Mom,This is beautiful. For those of us who aren't, this is Even more beautiful. For those who are moms, you'll love this.
>The young mother set her foot on the path of life. 'Is This the long way?' she asked. And the guide said:'Yes, and the way is hard. And you will be old before you reach the end of it... But The end will be better than the beginning.'
But the young mother was happy, and she would not Believe that anything could be better than these years. So she Played with her children, and gathered flowers for Them along the way, and bathed them in the clear streams; and The sun shone on them, and the young Mother cried,'Nothing will ever be lovelier than this.'
>Then the night came, and the storm, and the path was Dark, and the children shook with fear and cold, and the mother Drew them close and covered them with her mantle, and the children said, 'Mother, we are not afraid, for you are near, and no harm can come.'
>And the morning came, and there was a hill ahead, and The children climbed and grew weary, and the mother was weary. But at all times she said to the children,' A little patience and we are there.'So the children climbed, and when they reached the top They said, 'Mother, we would not have done it without you.'
>And the mother, when she lay down at night looked up At the stars and said, 'This is a better day than the last, for my Children have learned fortitude in the face of hardness.Yesterday I gave them courage. Today, I've given them strength.'
>And the next day came strange clouds which darkened The earth, clouds of war and hate and evil, and the children groped And stumbled, and the mother said: 'Look up. Lift your eyes to the light. ' And the children looked and saw above the clouds An everlasting glory, and it guided them beyond the Darkness. And that night the Mother said, 'This is the best day of all, for I have shown my children God.'
>And the days went on, and the weeks and the months and The years, and the mother grew old and she was little and bent. But her children were tall and strong, and walked with Courage. And when the way was rough, they lifted her, For she was as light as a feather; and at last they came to a hill,And beyond they could see a shining road and golden gates flung wide. And Mother said, 'I have reached the end of my journey. And now I know the end Is better than the beginning, for my children can Walk alone, and their children after them.'
>And the children said, 'You will always walk with us, Mother, even when you have gone through the gates.'And they stood and watched her as she went on alone, and the gates Closed after her. And they said: 'We cannot see her But she is with us still. A Mother like ours is more than a memory. She Is a living presence.......'
>Your Mother is always with you... She's the whisper Of the leaves as you walk down the street; she's the smell of bleach In your freshly laundered socks; she's the cool hand On your brow when you're not well. Your Mother lives Inside your laughter. And she's crystallized in every tear drop. She's the place you came from, your first home; and she's the map you follow with every step you take. She's your first love And your first heartbreak, and nothing on earth can Separate you.Not time, not space... Not even death!
