Awhile back I heard a sermon on Mark 8:22-26, which talks about Jesus healing a blind man in Bethsaida. Like me, you’ve probably heard accounts of Jesus and His healings time and time again. And likely a lot of you think of a loved one that you pray Jesus would lay His healing hands upon – … More Stepping Out Of Familiarity
We need to learn to “rest” instead of “stress” don’t we? It seems like almost everyone I talk to is under stress of some type or the other. How about you? When I’m stressed I don’t sleep well, I tend to eat everything in sight, and I get pretty cranky and irritable. But I’ve learned … More What’s Your New Year’s Resolution?
Alrighty folks, gotta get back to Jeffrey for yet another miracle we encountered once we got ready to get him back to college after his freshman year. If you remember, his previous year didn’t exactly end up on the happiest note (Our God – Always on Time). We enjoyed our summer with Jeffrey back at … More Another Miracle For Jeffrey
As I wrote in my last post Road Trip (Continued), we finally arrived to Prescott, Arizona. We had checked into a hotel for the week, and were now in the process of getting everything put in order for Jeffrey to start college. The next morning, Embry-Riddle’s (ERAU) disability director came dropping by our hotel room. … More Well, Let’s Get Started!
Was Jeffrey being hurt at school by someone who was supposed to be taking care of him? Had I been blind to the issue? What should I do? Back when Jeffrey was having issues with his school therapists contradicting what his private therapists were telling him to do (I’m Ready – Let Me At ‘Em!), … More Miss Sam to the Rescue!
Remember the show “Bewitched” starring Elizabeth Montgomery which aired from 1964-1972? Samantha (Montgomery) was a gorgeous blonde who falls in love and marries New York ad exec Darrin Stephens. A match made in heaven, right? Ah, no… You see, after they got married Darrin finds out that Samantha is actually a powerful witch, and with … More “Wigging Out” Continues…
Well I had finished my Bible study on “Peace” (Jeffrey Starts Kindergarten), and unfortunately it didn’t take long for me to totally and completely forget everything that I had just studied and learned… As parents with special needs children know, once your child is in school hardly a day will go by without getting some … More I’m Ready – Let Me At ‘Em!
Well it was time. Time for another shift in our lives. Jeffrey was now going to go into kindergarten. We had been so blessed with his preschool teachers and his friends there (Jeffrey’s Getting Stronger – Isn’t He?), but now the school district was telling us that he needed to be taken out of that … More Jeffrey Starts Kindergarten
Before I get started on Jeffrey’s jaunt into kindergarten, I came across a few things in my journal from back then that brought back all sorts of memories. One day in particular that popped into my mind was the day when Gary’s sister Linda, prior to her death (On No, More Pain on the Way, … More Ya Just Never Know What God’s Gonna Do Next
I was talking with a “blast-from-the-past-friend” the other day, and our conversation started to center on our grown boys. It reminded me of a journal entry of mine dated 6/5/10 that I had read just about a week earlier. In this particular entry I was stressing (again!) about how in the world our son Jeffrey … More God – What Are You Doing About My Son?
