Although it is tough to have a son like this, God gave me instant love and grace for this boy. He is an adult of 21 years today and I still have to wash him, brush his teeth, in fact do everything for him. He is sick today too, but I can still hear him laughing as I write this. It's LOVE that gives me the strength to carry on even when he ties me to the home and I have to miss out on a lot of things. Its God's Love and Grace and I want to thank and honor Him for it. The Bible says:
Truly I say to you, In as much as you have done to one of the least of my brethren, you have done it unto me.Math.25:40
To know that I am really serving Jesus when I love and cherish my son has given my life an extra dimension.
I am very grateful that he gets picked up in the morning to go to a wonderful school where he is occupied and I am also happy that he gets brought home in the evenings. I need that little break. It has taught our other sons how to handle and cope with handicapped people with respect and love. It has added dimension to my DH's life who is used to solving problems - David is a problem he can't solve and it has humbled us.
So today I want to thank David for his influence in our lives in making us softer, richer and deeper in our hearts to have been gifted with his weakness and having to deal with it in everyday life.
