Blessings and challenges…

2016 has been a year of many blessings and of course some challenges too. My biggest concern for this year was sending my son off to Kindergarten. His journey hasn’t been easy so this was a difficult decision. The weeks before he started school I felt more anxiety and worry than I ever have before. I hoped and prayed that he would be able to learn so many new things and that he would be able to communicate and connect well with others. There just seemed to be so many things to be worried about. Then a few days before school was going to start we were driving and he was singing (which he loves to do) the song, Because He Lives. Very clearly he sang the line from the song that says, “He holds my life my future in His hands.” I will remember that moment always. I know that God has a plan for my family but sometimes it takes my five year old to remind me.  My son is having a fabulous year in Kindergarten. He has excellent people supporting him at school and I am so thankful to see him doing so well. I am learning to pray more and worry less and also to trust in God’s plan and timing. We all feel thankful and blessed to be part of a wonderful church family at Malmo and are looking forward to the year ahead.
