Yesterday (Sunday) we went over to our good friends, the Ciancarelli's for dinner... nothing like some good authentic Italian food to offer some comfort! It was really neat to spend time with them, especially the kids since they have been praying so hard for "Mr. Adam". We sat at the dinner table reflecting on what a miracle Adam is. It was so exciting to have someone else get so excited with me as we observed Adam and watched him do things for himself! It always so much fun to rejoice with others!
After giving Adam the day to rest yesterday, we started back up this morning. Adam started with a pad of paper and a pen and he drew. He drew a picture that filled the entire page, this is really exciting because he has a tendency to ignore his right side, but in his drawing he did not!!! After spending time drawing, he worked on these magnetic puzzlers (like shown below), he did one all on his own. They are actually harder than they look, all the magnets are small and there is no guide on how to figure them together to fit inside the gray area... and he did it all on his own. Today he did this in less time than he did on Saturday! I am so proud of my man, he's amazing!
I love the reminders that butterflies serve in my spiritual life... this afternoon, Debbie called me into her garage, and there was a beautiful butterfly, while I went to take a picture of it, it flew all the way around me, it circled me completely and then landed directly in front of me... it was so amazing.
This is the exact same butterfly, isn't amazing!
I love what a faithful God we serve, faithful in always showing us that He is in control. No matter what He is in control. He is extending His arms wide open offering hope in ways that only God is capable of, all we have to so is accpet His love, his unfailing, never ending love. Sending me a butterfly today was the perfect reminder that, He loves me so much to send such a beautiful butterfly as a reminder that He is still with me, still going before me, that I am still His beloved. Some days are more difficult than others, some days are weepier than others, some days are more painful and today was that way for me, so to have God send a little messenger of hope and peace was such a gift from above... God sure knows what He's doing! James 1:17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
