Quick

Yesterday was rough.  Today has felt a little better.  But we could use prayers tonight after 7:00 pm when we tell Akila about the plans for Thursday.  Not sure how it is going to go.

Barb-
I have been following your blog since stumbling on it through Dorothy's blog. We go to BBC South now (taught SS with Dan and Tara one year!)

You have all been on my heart and mind so much. I check frequently for updates.

I will be lifting your family up to him tonight (I am going to start right now). I just opened my Bible to Psalm 138. I "am praying verse 3 for you - On the day I called, you answered me; my strength of soul you increased." Praying that you would have strength of soul!

I am also praying verse 8 for Akila - "The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands"

So know that someone you don't know down in Prior Lake, loves you and is lifting you up in prayer this evening.

I think you may be having this discussion right now. I will add my prayer.

"Be quite sure that God will bless you and that the depths of your sufferings will be matched by the consolation reserved for you." (St. Therese of Lisieux)

Oh, oh, oh. I feel so, so deeply for you and Michael tonight. I will never forget the day we told our son he was transferring to a RTC, 3,000 miles away from our home in Alaska, where there are no such facilities to help an autism spectrum teenager.
But.
The morning we woke up with no locks on the door, after a full night of sleep, and with a toddler who didn't have to hide under his bed any longer, was the most peaceful, ever.
I remember the song by David Crowder Band "Never Let Go" was playing the day we received our call of acceptance for the RTC. I was in my car, on my way to pick up MJ at school. Over and over I repeated, and have many times since then, "You never let go, you never let go, you never let go..."
And He never has.
Prayers and hugs and all that is sweet for you and your whole family.

Praying for you and your family. I'm thinking "This Is Not Goodbye" by the Sidewalk Prophets on their new album LIVE LIKE THAT is a perfect song for this situation.
