It's been a while since my last post. Don't worry, I'm still around and haven't slipped and stumbled. My life just took a turn from the usual craziness, to overwhelmingly chaotic. My son who has ASD started his therapy early this year, and it has been full on!!! Hours everyday are spent working with him. I run him to appointments, I research, I read, I have meetings with teachers, workers, therapists. It has been NUTS!! But it has been worth while.
God has been blessing us and revealing his hand and his influence in the whole situation. EJ sees God as someone who is incredibly good and amazing. He asked me one day, "Mummy, why did God make me to have Aspergers?". I wasn't ready for this one, so I quickly tried to come up with a good answer. "Well darling, when God was creating you, he thought "Hmmm, what would make EJ unique and special? I know. He can have Aspergers. He would make a great Aspie!! He would see the world in a wonderful way. He will be so smart and have amazing gifts!" and so you have it." EJ grinned at me. It was the right answer, because he now sees it as a gift. God gave him special traits that no one else has. He does "whack" stuff and we all stare at him baffled, and he just grins at us, "Eh, I have ASD." and then laughs. He has an incredible belief in God's goodness and love for him, and he is only 6 years old.
As for me. At the risk of sounding like I have no idea what I am talking about.... which is partially true because I do not do sports. I hate it. It's boring, it's sweaty, it's hot, it has brawls and violence, and I am not enthused about it one bit. But God have me a picture in a sports analogy. Yes... ironic. Anyway... back to it. I feel like I have been benched. I'm part of a bigger picture, but God has placed me on a bench for the moment. I'm watching the game, I'm still part of the team, but sitting back and waiting for my turn to go join in. I'm happy with that. My ministry is with my family at the moment. My son is my ministry.
I hope that soon things will settle down, and I'll be back blogging more often.
May God richly bless and keep you, and may his face shine upon you.
