This is how it looked outside when we woke up this morning:
Trust you are having a wonderful day - and that no matter what your weather - that your heart is enjoying the warmth of God's love.
To think that it all came into existence through the spoken word of God. How thankful I am that He is a God of beauty. How wonderful to know He gave me these things to enjoy - and to allow my mind to think on Him. How blissful the thought!!
Trust you are enjoying the beauty of God's creation whether in the nature that surrounds you - or in the creation He is doing in your heart as He conforms you into the image of His Son. Thanks so much for stopping by - I am so glad you did.
The last several weeks here at home have been filled with challenges in regards to our son. Zak, as most of you know, has autism; and what is normal and easy for us in life can be complex and confusing for him.
We have reached a cross roads with him - and are needing to make some decisions. Doctor's appointments have been made to give us some clear direction on what our next steps are to be.
I will be honest and tell you that I have reached a point of almost complete burnout with the little guy. God, as He always does, has provided a bit of relief from the stress. Zak has taken a vacation of sorts and is staying with his Grandparents for a couple weeks. This will give me a break and both Rob and I some time to pray and make some decisions with clearer thinking.
It has not been an easy road - I will be honest and say it is not going to get any easier. Sometimes my flesh wants the easy way - and yet I know that the trials that come into our lives are there to help us to grow and to depend upon the Lord more.
I am asking you if you would make Zak a matter of prayer. We need to know God's mind on the matter and have divine direction as to God's will in his life. I just wanted to share a bit of my heart with you. Your prayers will be greatly appreciated.
Blessings to you My friends,
(I thought a trip down memory lane would be in order right now. Enjoy again, or for the first time, the video we made about our Zak and how autism has affected our lives)
The Blessing of Autism
We also were blessed to have some guests come and join us for the concert. Miss Shelli drove up to see the kids - and made the kids' night with her appearance. Rob's parent's also joined us for the evening giving Zak someone different to sit next to for the program.
We ended the night with our drive home through the country and were greeted by snow falling gently from the sky. It was a perfect way to end a most enjoyable evening.
I will update everyone on a date as soon as we know anything at all. Thanks for your prayers!!
Trust you are enjoying the blessings God has brought into your life. Thanks so much for stopping by - I am so glad you did.
