He’s legally our dependant.
And in many ways he depends upon us to provide for his needs.
Yet, I was very aware yesterday (it was his birthday) he may not always be.
Although his life is vastly different from the average, he’s made some astonishing progress.
He’s not going to meet the same milestones as other people do, but I’ve been encouraged lately about his future.
With our move and my health I’ve come to depend upon him for several things.
He takes the trash out and he makes sure the cans are on the curb Monday morning.
He does nearly all my yard work.
He helps in the kitchen or tidying up around the house.
It’s been an incredible blessing.
I depend upon him for his love and kindness.
He’s often ready to make me a cup of tea or sometimes he just holds my hand when I don’t feel well.
He goes with me to the allergist to get my shots.
I asked him yesterday if he wanted to go.
He looked at me a little surprised.
“I’ve never missed one yet.”
He’s very good at remembering landmarks and notices details faster than I do.
Which has become great when driving in unfamiliar areas.
I’m a country girl and this town driving has me often lost.
He prays for me.
His eagerness to learn about God makes Bible study a joy.
It’s been such a blessing to have all of our children.
Each one is special and valuable.
Each one so very precious.
All of them have made personal commitments to follow Jesus and I pray for them daily.
As they grow and leave home (I’m down to only two at home!) I’m so thankful for the time I’ve had.
Psalm 127:3 KJV — Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
It’s so true!
I praise God for our dependants, may they always be dependent upon Jesus.
