On the eve of Jon’s birthday (Jon turns 35 on June 5th), I can’t help but be overwhelmed by ALL that God has brought Jon through in the past 8 months!!!!!
Jon’s life was spared after his near-death motorcycle crash in PNG. The long hospital stay, nine surgeries to put his body back together, the countless nurses and doctors that have worked on him, the intense physical therapy to get Jon mobile again, the list goes on and on of ALL of the things God has walked us through, never leaving our side. ALL of miracles that have happened are all to the glory of God!! And God alone. He gets all the praise due to Him!!
As I got to watch & experience Jon go from shakily walking to virtually walking cane- and crutch-free, I am in awe. Speechless. As we now get to walk hand-in-hand and hug standing up, I feel giddy like a school girl again!!!
To this past Wednesday riding along with Jon on his first helicopter flight with two legs, I want to tell you all that GOD.IS.GOOD!!!!
Celebrating God’s goodness in celebrating Jon’s birthday…I want to say thank you ALL for being a BIG part of our journey!!!! For praying us through the scary first hours after hearing about his accident to now seeing him walk & fly again. You’re encouraging words, visits, cards, emails, FB messages have helped keep us going, even on some of the hardest of days.
So thankful for you ALL near & far & all over the world for lifting Jon & our family up to God in prayer. For showing us love in so many different ways.
Happy Birthday Jon Leedahl Ntm. you’re a walking miracle!!!!!
