Look Mom, No Training Wheels!

Yesterday I had one of those days where the question "Why?" stood in the forefront of my brain. I am usually too busy to ever worry about the 'whys' of this life. I can't change the past but chronically believe I can impact the future. That is where my focus lies.

But not yesterday.

I won't go into what happened to make me start feeling sorry for myself. Just the typical special needs 'stuff' you are probably familiar with. But I will tell you that by God's grace, His Holy Spirit in me, I was convicted about my worries and became able to rest in His help, comfort, and direction. He even stored all of my tears in a(nother) bottle.



And, He had something for me. Our God is so good and so ready to meet us where we're at when we come to the Cross. He refreshed me for the day, set my focus on Him and His promises. He filled me up with new hope and joy in the people that I am mercifully surrounded by and all the little things that mean so much to me.

But, I could've never guessed what was coming later that night!

Ashi rode her bike without training wheels for the first time! Yes and YES!! My husband and I could not contain our joy in Ashi's victory over her bike. We shouted in the streets, we informed the neighbors, we high fived each other, like a million times! We rooted her on like crazy people and we rode all over town. We couldn't stop feeling genuine joy.

To move with your child through every moment of not being able to balance or pedal or steer, to doing them ALL at the same time is a long process involving many pieces of  equipment, tackling each issue one at a time, slowly incorporating them all with years of believing, practice, and just as much prayer. I Praise our Amazing God we serve for blessing us all in this way! 

WAY TO GO ASHI! YOU DID IT!!

My husband said something wise last night. "Ashi, the best thing about knowing how to ride a bike is that you'll never forget how."

I thought about that and my own walk with Christ. I was so down yesterday. Literally hurt and defeated. But, my habit is to bring it all to my Heavenly Father. Praise Him that I don't forget how, just like riding a bike. Bikes don't answer back, but God does.
