Therapists and Specialists

We are moving through the stages of getting closer to understanding what is going on with Jeshuah (See note The Path of Loneliness). The last couple of weeks have been, to put it bluntly, awful. As near as I can see, he is growing his molars and one finally poked through two days ago, which seems to have given some relief, but I sense many more are on the cusp. I certainly have never seen him this way! Thrashing, screaming, hysterical, inconsolable. Poor little guy! I recently found, though, that he seems to be comforted by spinning things, and when he is hysterical, I give him his donut, he squeals with delight, and spins to his heart’s content (with a few wails of anguish and pain due to teeth randomly mixed in). When he can spin in small doses, it seems to have a calming affect on him, what a relief! It keeps me questioning if taking all of his spinners away really is the right thing to do or not. Oh, to have some answers!

Monday and Tuesday are the big days. Monday, the developmental therapist will come to our home to do our assessment. On Tuesday, the occupational therapist will come. One stop closer to answers and understanding how to help my little boy.

My prayer is, as it has always been since we moved here, that our home will carry in it the sweet fragrance of Christ and Him crucified. That anyone who ever opens our door or walks across the threshold will be able to sense the presence of the Spirit and be ministered to. It is my prayer that these two women will be encouraged while they are in our home, that they will see the joy that is ours in Christ, and that I might even have the chance to speak of the grace that has been given to me. God is good, and we want to see Him glorified and magnified through this circumstance–even if this process stops with these women saying he’s quite normal (and Lord let it be so!), I will have encountered three women from various walks of life whom I would not have otherwise ever crossed paths with. And may their souls be open to the gospel and may these sense it in our home and see if on our faces.

Please join me in praying! Solo de gloria.

    I love you friend, and your heart for our Lord. I am absolutely certain that a prayer like this will be answered… as you said, “solo de gloria”
