17 yrs ago today I was blessed with the birth of my Son. Where did the time go?
2 days old
I remember being told by a Dr. that I would never be able to have children do to multiple miscarriages & cysts in my ovaries. My Son was the second blessing I was granted, after this. He has grown into such a great young Man that is very caring. God has truly brought my son through it all. He was diagnosed with Autism/ADHD when he was 9, up until then school was such a challenge to the point he was not allowed to attend school & I was home schooling him until he received his diagnoses. He then was aloud to attend school for 2.5 hrs a day until grade 6 where he finally could attend full time. He then moved onto High school in Grade 9 Where he ended up on the honour roll & then by Grade 11 was excepted on the High School football team. Grade 12 though he made the decision to leave the Football team as it wasn't his career choice and it was inter-fearing with his grade 12 studies. I was so excited that he could make such a mature decision with out any outside influence.
Through the victories you gave, his glory is great;
you have bestowed on him splendor and majesty.
Surely you have granted him unending blessings
and made him glad with the joy of your presence.
For the king trusts in the LORD;
through the unfailing love of the Most High
he will not be shaken.
Psalm 21:5-7 (NIV)
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding, he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.
Ephesians 1:3-10 (NIV)
