So we have been coming up from the depths of seclusion last summer and this spring season has been slow progress but small steps make big changes. The youngest who even earlier this year had trouble getting in the shower is now showering nearly daily and I don’t have to wait outside the door or check his pulse, or talk to him while he is in the shower. This is pretty monumental!!! And the calmness is a bit scary. I know there will be other ups and downs, but calm well that is a new sensation. There are other things to work on in family and fortunately the hubby has agreed that he also needs to have individual therapy so he can have someone to voice his fears and concerns to and be open with without reservations. Seems we are a family who tamp down our feelings and not talk about them. Which is why family group is good for all of us, we can talk safely and without reservations and it is comforting.
so my prayer for today is gratitude in the calmness, increasing hope which was at a low point, increasing hope that overflows and becomes joy even in the scariness of the calm and for the peace which passes all understanding to remain even in times of change and confusion. I am stuck on a song this morning “Blessed be the name of the Lord” I do not know all the words but I am blessed today and am profoundly grateful that I can speak the name of the Lord without fear as so many can’t in this world. AMEN
