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

A Balancing Act

Today marks the 6th year of John's near drown accident. It's been up and down as we do our therapies. We wish it was faster but God has asked us to be patient, we wish to give him a better future but God has asked us to trust Him. In many ways God has enabled us to grow in maturity, asking us at times "do you love me more than these?" Personally it's a painful question one that I wrestle with even till today. There is however less wrestling and a more willingness to submit and reaffirm my faith in Christ.
It's a balancing act of working and praying as we care for John. Here you see John balancing a 'tako' on his head. Balancing it is not easy for him, it just one of the many things we do to help John progress in his abilities.
We praise God that he is more alert of his surroundings and that his seizures are less frequent of late. We praise God we can hug him, laugh with him, tease him and cry with him.

Playing with homemade handheld trampoline

Today is John's birthday. He is 16. We thank God that we see improvements as he goes for therapies. This was made by his private occupational therapist. The clothe is Lycra and the yellow balloon is filled with angsana seeds. To me it's a nice "ball" game, something he has not done since his near drown; hold a sports equipment to play ball. This one has level up since he needs to focus and keep the ball in control. Thanks auntie Lee Fun.

We as pilgrims on this earth have many plans, for ourselves...our children. Even now John has plans and dreams but perhaps the best plan is to stay close to Him who gave His life so that we might live.

"I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep." John 10:11
