As for me I have total faith in God.....
My testaments in faith from one day
Sunday we were able to take Cashel to church for the first time. It was AMAZING! In the last 3 months Cashel has been really interested in watching Joel Osteen and Kerry Shook. A few years ago he had a wonderful young man named Marcus that used to come over every week for bible study but it has just been him and I talking about God and our beliefs since that ended. You see I cannot bring myself to go or do things that I know Cashel or Allie want to do and can't. Cashel was very intent on getting to church, so we made sure we got him there.
Now, as most of you know Cashel is a very late night owl, but on Saturday he went to bed 3 hours early and was up and calling me to get him ready at 8 am, this is huge. Church was not till 11 am but he has about 2 1/2 hours of care to get him ready to go out. Around 9:30 Cashel's dad called and said he couldn't sleep and was it okay if he didn't come over (he has to come and take care of Allie while we go out) I told him he needed to ask Cashel because he was the one who he was coming over for, Cashel immediately answered "get in the shower and get over" no mercy :)
While is was getting Cashel's chair ready I glance over at Allie and see her looking with excitement at the wheelchair, I imagine what she is thinking, Oh we are going somewhere!" I am hit by a wave of sadness for her because she can't go today, like so many times before, she can't go, and I can't do anything to change that fact at this moment. She can't go out with her biggest hero, her brother. I quickly turn away to try and keep my focus on what I can do and I say God I have faith and know you will help bring our family what we need.
As much as we try we always run late and as Matt was yelling at me to Move my butt, Brandon is glaring at me because he hasn't slept and is grumpy, I thought I can't do this, we only have an hour and I haven't showered, Cashel is not even in his wheelchair yet and Emily isn't ready but I stopped, took a breath and said "God guide me". Then I looked over at Cashel, his eyes wide and I can see the excitement in them and I know I have the strength and energy to do this for him. With my next breath came a feeling of peace and release of all my anxiety. We finally hit the road about 11:10 and Matt was concerned that wouldn't be any open parking spots and he will feel bad going in late and disturbing everyone. I said "Matt, think of where we are going, God will take care of everything. As we pull in it seemed as if Moses put his staff to the ground and made way for us and "Voila" a spot right in front with cones and crossed lines next to it! Room for our lift to go! (That is another HUGE thing!) As I am rolling Cashel toward the church I stop, I see my son, that has brought me closer to God then I could have ever dreamed and behind him in the distance the cross on the top of the church, a perfect picture!
Sunday was an AMAZING DAY full of God's true
blessings.When I think things are impossible I remember all thing are possible with God. God showed me that several times in one day and gave me the faith to know that even though getting a handicap van to fit both Cashel and Allie seems impossible He will bless us and our fundraiser and it WILL happen! God bless you to see what is possible in your life too!
