Broken Fuse Days


What a week! Heavy therapy appointments for our little guy, very important upcoming IEP to be contemplated, piles of laundry, i.e. real life, last, very last checks before manuscript and book cover is sent for proof-reviews, which means publication could be only weeks away,…and a fuse has blown.


Oh yes,…us that live in older homes still have quaintly antiquated systems.

Changing a fuse is a lot like changing a lightbulb,…only you have to turn the electricity off,…scary endeavor,…if you’ve never done it before. The happy part is a new fuse = circuit breaker repaired,…lights and electricity for all!

Luckily our little guy has helped us learn the fine art of flexibility for the only thing predictable about living with Apraxia and Autism is that there is nothing predictable about living with Apraxia and Autism,…each day is an adventure.

Of course, faith plays an ever bigger factor.

My newest favorite catch-phrase, “If it is out of your hands,…it is in God’s.”

Or even better, “And we know that all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” – Romans 8:28

With a zillion things to do before I pick up my little guy for speech therapy – I didn’t need a broken fuse this morning, but with my husband tied up with business – I got to learn a new skill, via his instructions over the phone. Also clued into a blog post, as it’s Wednesday and I’ve yet to have a chance to write the blog post rattling in my head, which has to do with facing giants.

Lot of stuff going on in my life that is out of my control.

Giants are ahead, bigger, stronger, and slightly intimidating. But you know the Lord tested David before his bout with Goliath with a bear and a lion,…so instead of being inconvenienced by a broken fuse in my life, I can learn what lessons it has to yield. At the very least,…I now know how to throw a circuit breaker!

Until I post again,…may God bless and keep you!

P.S….YES! That’s a very fuzzy sneak peek of the Becoming Portia – New Beginnings book cover,…also the best advice in the world for any dilemma – PRAY!
