In repentance and rest is your salvation,
In quietness and trust is your strength.    Isaiah 30:15

How often we have returned to these verses for perspective.  We find our strength in quietness and trust.   In rest, we find healing (salvation).  We are thinking the same truth applies to Lydia.  She has had two weeks of her home therapy schedule, and while it is full of good, helpful activities, it is full! We are looking to pare it down, to give her more rest time, and more down time.  Her mind is constantly processing.  We have no experience with brain injury recovery, so we listen to those who do, listen to God, and to our hearts.  And we take it one week at a time.
This morning, Lydia excitededly asked "when is the ribbon waving?"  We told her that it is this Thursday.  "Yeah!" she shouted, and clapped her hands.  We will rest more at the beginning of this week to prepare for the joy of Thursday November 1 at 5:00.
Tomorrow is Sunday.  We will make it our day of rest in small ways.  Notably , we will not update  tomorrow on our day with Lydia, but take a day of rest from blogging too.
