Therapy and the Shepard Speaking


It has been such a amazing experience to sit in therapy with Benjamin.  I do it weekly.  Just me and my little man....

Ben at Speech therapy with Ms. Jessica.  

He come so far.

Our Occupational Therapist has set new goals.

Our Feeding Therapist (Ben does not chew) is creative and we have seen beginning signs of Ben trying to mimic chewing.

Our Speech Therapist has Ben using signs more, two signs at a time, giving Ben more picture choices successfully to communicate his needs.  We even started the VERY beginning of seeing how Ben will do on an IPAD speech program.

This little guy went from a life of total neglect, to a life of hope.

It had me thinking, "What if we had not listened to God, but man?"

There are so many times that would be easy to do.  Going against the flow of the waters is hard, scary, it feels like you are going to drown at times.

A friend texted me this (from Hinds Feet in High Places) when I was heading out this morning.

Shepard speaking: "...believe me, when you get to the places which you dread you will find they are as different as possible from what you imagined, just as was the case when you were actually ascending  the precipice."

I ponder the drug withdrawal Ben went through.  I realize how things "could have been".  Instead we have come through fire to the other side.  We don't know what honing the future holds, but we know (as our family expands) that we will follow our Heavenly Father through whatever furnace we need to walk through.

Again, I have to post this quote below.

“But God doesn't call us to be comfortable. He calls us to trust Him so completely that we are unafraid to put ourselves in situations where we will be in trouble if He doesn't come through.”

In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright shove...no matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

Join the momentum...it is a beautiful place to be. It's not always easy, but then the best things never are.
