I will make rivers flow on barren heights, and springs within the valleys. I will turn the desert into pools water and the parched ground into springs. I will put in the desert the ceder and the acacia, the myrthle and the olive. I will set pines in the wasteland, the fir and cypress together, so that people may see and know, may consider and understand, that the hand of the Lord has done this, that the Holy One of Israel has created it.

Isaiah 41:18-20

My workout bike

We got this exercise bike for john about 2 weeks ago, it gives him a bit of resistance. John enjoys his food and we thought since he's not running and playing games like he used to; he should do some workout! He doesn't really enjoy it, but we've got to 'encourage' him on.

Posting (Pt.2)

Hi, Happy New Year everybody! We've been busy towards the end of the year with Christmas and all; so that's why I didn't post up one at the end of december. This was taken the week before christmas. Aunty choon heah who was on holiday came over and work with him. (Yeah she's a 'slave driver'). We've been working on his hands and eyes so that they can function better. Here we use brown colour tiles that are smaller and he has to search it out to drop in cup thus increasing the difficulty level. We do this almost daily so at times we need to motivate him with a tasty snack as you'll see. Like all kids he doesn't like 'homework' either!

Most people have a christmas wish list and ours was naturally for john to be well again. For him to be independant, have a purposeful life and to love God and to know he's loved. But as I started to pray for my 2 girls, I realise I'm basically asking for the same things. Things have change so drastically for john and us but at the core of things; God is still the same and his promises remain the same.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future" (Jer. 29:11)

Posting (Pt.1)

This was taken at the end of October. Here you see John dropping coloured counters into a cup. Earlier we have worked him with a bigger container and it's getting smaller. It's monotonous but something we keep at almost daily. He's basically doing hand and eye co-ordination which he needs a lot of pratice with as he has a depth perception problem. Because of this he can not walk on unfamiliar ground on his own. He does not know if there's a step or flat ground ahead therefore he can trip easily. When we compare it with posting pt.2; we can see the improvement that John has made. Now that John is more mobile we are diligently working on his hands and eye.
