Max Lacado writes "Catch God in a bad mood? Won't happen. Fear exhausted grace? A sardine will swallow the Atlantic first. Think he's given up on you? WRONG. Did he not make a promise to you? 'God is not a human being, and he does not change his mind. What he says he will do, he does. What he promises, he makes come true.' Numbers 23:19(NCV) He's never sullen or sour, sulking or stressed. His strength, truth, ways, and love never change. 'He is the same yesterday, today, and forever.' Hebrews 13:8 And because he is the Lord 'will be the stability of your times' Isaiah 33:6 (NKJV)
Let me recap the last month for you all...
We travelled through, storms, rain, heat, hail, and snow and finally arrived from North Carolina to Oregon a couple of weeks ago... I still can't believe we are here.
In the last couple of weeks, Mackenzie started a new school, Adam started therapy... well, I just make sure everyone gets to where they need to be and do my best to stay on top of it all. Let's start with Mackenzie, thank you to all who have been lifting her into the hands of Jesus, He's carrying her through this season victoriously! Her transition into this new school has been the easiest and most exciting transitions we have experienced! She LOVES her new school and is academically thriving. She seems to be making friends and enjoying her days, but to be honest... I haven't seen much of her. I compete now with horses for her attention. She loves being on Adam's family's farm. And when she has 100 horses surrounding her and lots of new babies from this foaling season, she is in her own little heaven. She helped her Gramps with the delivery of a foal and she has told me that and riding Tennessee (Granny's pony horse) and helping Gramps is better than Disneyland!
As for Adam... just a few days after arriving here in Oregon, Adam had another seizure. I believe it stemmed from over doing it, travelling, working on the farm, and being in familiar territory, yet still trying to make sense of his life. He seems to have recovered from this last seizure without any complications which is truly a miraculous gift from God. Adam needs to be covered in prayer as much as you can remember to pray for him... he is trying to so hard to make sense of his life and as he is coming to the realization of his age, he is aware of all the years he has lost and this is very, very hard for him. It's good, but it is very hard.
Please pray that as Adam starts to put the pieces of his life together, that he would remember and that we wouldn't have to start over every day. Please pray for his memory to increase and for him to be able to build on memory. Pray that God will comfort him during this difficult season, that Adam would see his purpose and know that his life has so much meaning. Often when Adam is struggling with his memory loss, he tells me he has no purpose, and he feels like his life is meaningless. I remind him of all that God has done, of all that God is doing, and that God has called Adam to be His mighty warrior from the very beginning.
