Tonight at church, Dale's dad Chad Ostrander spoke to the congregation at Bethel Baptist Church.
"It's not about Dale, it's not about our family, it's all about God. We've been privileged, fortunate to see a miracle this week."
He spoke of three verses they leaned on this week.
Jeremiah 33:3, Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.
"We didn't know what the 'great and mighty things' were, but we knew God was going to show us something. We didn't know if Dale being back to normal and healthy was in his plans, but we were going to trust him."
The other verses were Romans 8:28, And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose, and Isaiah 55:8, For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
Brother Ostrander said, "We didn't understand, we just accepted. I knelt by his bed and put Dale on the altar, like Abraham. I told God, 'You offered your son, you know how it feels. Thank you for letting us say goodbye.' We tried to let the girls know that he wasn't coming back. That night, the doctor knelt down right by Dale's ear and said, 'Dale, open your eyes!' and his eyes opened! We thought, 'Wow, there's hope!"
Today Dale got up and walked down the hall with help from the physical therapist.
The seizure that happened last night may have just been his brain "catching up" to some of the sensations of pain.
In Chad Ostrander's words: "God has shown us a miracle."
