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

Doing puzzle on my own

John has been playing with this puzzle for sometime. I have often made it easier by helping him to select the piece he wants to fit in. Now we're going 1 level up by putting all the pieces there and him having to pick it and find where it fits. We're progressing so slowly that without videos, you'll not appreciate the difference.
Last Friday 28.9.2012 was the 4th anniversary of John's near drown accident. It's a bitter sweet journey with family, friends and the church praying for us. I recall the wandering of the Israelites in the desert where they tested God saying 'Is the Lord among us or not?' (Exodus 17:7). When we turn on the switch and there's no light; we don't loose faith in electricity. When it's a rainy, cloudy day; we don't doubt the existence of the sun. In times like this we can only look to the cross remembering that God so loved the world that He gave His only beggotten Son . . .(John 3:16). He knew what He was doing then, He knows what he's doing now. We only need to trust. In Matt 11:29-30 Jesus says "Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden light."

Happy 14th Birthday John

John celebrated his 14th birthday yesterday with a chocolate cheese cake made by Aunty Choon Heah. We celebrate it as a family with the 'party' game being monopoly with his sister Sophia. I often feel bittersweet during this time; sad when I see John's disability and yet glad he's with us. Prov.16:9 says, "The human mind plans the way, but the Lord directs the step." It's a comfort to know that it is Jesus who'll direct our steps, Someone who is the way.

Happy Malaysia Day everybody.

Recently we've been enjoying our own version of handball. It's fun for John and he has requested for it several times when ask what he wants to do. He requests by taking the ball  and handing over to mom. Initially we played 2 persons now we've added kakak too. We usually  play it in the afternoons after our table work.
John's seizures have increased in frequency in last 3 months so we've decided to increase the dosage of his medication slowly. The fits almost always appear during his sleep i.e. either afternoon nap or at night. This often cause John's mouth ulcer.. When it happens keeping his oral hygiene is a chore cos it hurts.
It's the Merdeka weekend so Happy Belated Merdeka Day everyone.
