This blog was created to show how it takes Down Right Faith to thrive with the diagnosis of Down syndrome. In this time of my life as I am in the middle of a separation with no understanding of what the future holds for me and my family, it is brings me back to 4.5 years ago when the future was uncertain for a different reason. We didn’t know what Down syndrome was going to mean for our baby, for us as parents, or for our boys. We tackled that uncertainty with faith… so as we go through this next transition… I will go back to that same guiding light… Down Right Faith.
So in the light of November and the impending Thanksgiving, I am going to echo many of my friends who are writing daily posts of what they are thankful for in this month of Thanksgiving. I am going to add my own little twist and do the ABC’s of Thanksgiving. Since I am starting late, I need to catch up. =0)
A – Anthony, my sweet sweet boy! I couldn’t adore him more!
B – Boomer – Yes, my goob of a dog. He has been my shadow and my ever present comfort
C – Christ – I have been in a valley for sooo long and I can finally feel his presence and peace!
D – Dell – I am so thankful for having a good job and wonderful people to work with. Don’t get me wrong, the job is kicking my tail right now, but it is a blessing of focus and financial support.
E – Evenings – Although I rarely rest since there is always work to do for either Dell or DSACT, the evenings provide a chance to breathe
F – Friends - I have the most AMAZING friends on the planet. I cannot imagine my life without them
G – Grace – I have felt God’s grace over this time.
I will end today with my favorite bible verse and my plumb line:
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. – Phil 4:6-7
