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

Planting pegs

I thought it would be difficult to have John learn this but he surprised me with his determination. It's really an encouragement when you see him at work like this. There are so many skills he has lost after the accident and regaining them is painfully slow for me but his willingness to try and work on things often spurs me on.

As Christmas approaches our thoughts are drawn to the town of Bethlehem, where God's plans begins to unfold with the coming of baby Jesus. It sometimes baffles me why God bothers with us at all, our ungratefulness, conceitedness, arrogance, selfishness etc. Jesus came from the splendour of heaven to the manger on earth so that He could be the Way back to God. But is the 'returns'/ 'profits' good enough? Not everybody will go to Heaven only those who believe in Him. He will not force; only love.

When I think of efforts put into John or any other disabled persons especially when they are mentally  challenged, it will not help them recover fully as before. Brain injury changes your life. With us every costs would have to be weighed but with Him grace is poured out abundantly to deliver us from our sins and to help us in all our trials.

My Grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness. (2 Cor 12:9)

Thank you God for being who your are, the Great I AM. (Ex.3:14)
