As I drove to the hospital with a man-boy beside me, I cried inside with thankfulness. I can be myself with Micah. He gets me and I get him. He knows that I am emotional and he understands it, but I still try not to drama with him. (: 10 years ago, the Lord knew that I would be driving Micah to the hospital at 15, but we would have never guessed. The gift is amazing. When I hit certain intersections as we drove, I heard Steve Green. When Micah was 5,6 and 7 ish we listened to him every morning as we drove in, whether it was for day treatment or for an admission. Wellington at Southdale - "When I am I afraid I will trust in you." Wellington at Baseline -"You knit me together in my mothers womb". Sometimes we would be crying as we listened, other times we would be smiling. But they were the two songs that pushed us on the most. We were comforted that the Lord was always there and that He made Micah perfectly. The Lord is sovereign. It's a truth that I never grow weary of hearing.
Tomorrow morning, we leave for Nova Scotia. We are so excited. We have never really road tripped as a family. This is a huge treat for us. We plan to take 4 days to get there stopping in Quebec, New Brunswick and PEI. By Friday night we should have arrived at the house we are staying in. Ken is preaching for 2 Sundays there in an ARP church. Ken has preached monthly over the last year in URC churches and we are so grateful that the Lord has continued to open pulpits for him. It's a bit tricky because are not a student in care in either of these denominations. But it has worked quite well. (: We are praying that the Lord will continue to open these doors and that the desire of our hearts will be realized in His time and in His way. It's possible that we have already arrived at God's long term plan, but what ever the case, we will be faithful right where we are, knowing that God is good and that His plan is perfect.
