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)
