To God Be The Glory

To God Be The Glory

Well, I’m getting quite the late start on the blog here this year.  So much has been happening here.  To God be the glory, January brought a final diagnosis for Big Bro.  In His goodness, God has blessed us with someone who read the reports correctly and is showing us how to help him.  In… Continue Reading

One Big Change

One Big Change

One of the big changes that are happening at our house is we have decided to begin homeschooling this year.  The Lord actually brought me through the 5 steps I laid out in my last post for seeking God’s will, which is how that post came to be.  I sought the Lord’s leading and mentioned specific ways I needed… Continue Reading

Almost as an afterthought, Dr West mentioned that in some kids the behavior gets worse as the moro reflex gets challanged and is eliminated.  I never gave it a second thought.  Within the first two weeks, Big Bro’s intensity lessened and the boys were playing together happily with lots of give and take between them… Continue Reading

Talk about your heart breaking. Crisis-mode is holding your… Continue Reading

Praise the Lord and Fight

Today I am so thankful for a God who loves me and cares.  Never have I felt so loved and held and cared for. If you have read some of my other posts, you know that my oldest son deals with some sensory issues that really mess with his behavior and psyche.  We have tied… Continue Reading

Its All Worthwhile

This morning we had the most wonderful time at Hemlock park.   Initially we were supposed to meet another family but we got there a few minutes before they did. The boys went right to the water, looked at the fish and seaweed then ran up and down the sloping sides, back and forth down… Continue Reading
