it is such a blessing to be a part of this man's life. cesar garcia - a hero and mentor in my life. he sets the bar high for what it looks like to truly follow and walk with Jesus. i am often convicted by the Lord's voice reminding me to consider cesar... his steadfastness... his abiding habits... his patience, endurance, and his perspective.
like training in sports, it's always good to have people around us who are ahead of us. it helps to have real life examples to look to and learn from. we need that as christians, too. for me, cesar is certainly one of those people.
which is one of the reasons it is such a privilege to be a blessing to him and his family. with the help of a friend who wishes to stay anonymous, we were able to get an orthopedic, adjustable bed brought in for cesar. at the touch of a button, he can adjust the angles of his back and legs. not only does this help reduce pain, but also assists with therapy.
he and his wife andrea voice texted me in the middle of the night thursday, the first night sleeping in the new bed. they were emotional because it was truly helping cesar rest. it was was one of the sweetest messages i've ever heard!
there is an awesome story about how this all came to fruition, but i will save that for my anonymous friend to tell as he chooses. to that friend: thank you for hearing the Lord's voice and responding immediately!
and thank you dr. carlos for being that guy who's always willing to jump in and help get a project done.
love and miss you amigo checha!!!
