Short Musings

Well, my blog was looking a little lonely, only seeming to post once or twice a week. It's been a rough month for us with our adopted son. He has emotional disabilities, other disorders and  he cannot live at home. He is 19, totally irresponsible, will not listen to advice, and completely lost. He is unstable and we cannot find much help for him because of budget cuts. We are praying that he will finish high school and be able to get some sort of job, if he is willing to work. My husband has had to put in a lot of emotional time and effort to try an keep him on some sort of even keel and it is taking its toll on him. I suffer from PTSD because of years of life with this child and currently have ME/CFS and it's coming up on three years of that. I have been ordered by my doctors to not see or speak to this child and I still have flashbacks.

I don't usually say much about this, because I prefer to focus on more positive things and most people don't seem to understand anyway. We have gotten lots of unasked for advice and ignorant comments. Because of our faith, we push on. If I did not have the Lord to lean on, I do not know how I would have made it this far. It is comforting to know that this is not all there is, that someday there is an eternity without pain and suffering and that this life is so small in comparison. The sorrow of this world will be replaced with joys and beauty. I believe it!

  1. Amen dear sister!!! We will have a blessed eternity with no pain and what we experience here will not even be a memory I don't think. What a glorious day that will be, when Jesus's face we will see. His glory will shine, we all will be fine, praising His Name we will be!!! I love you and I fully understand the tremendous struggles you and John have had. Sending big HUGS !!! God is great to lean on!
