Isaac is trick or treating with his best friend. I am so utterly happy. It has been more than a week since I could encourage him to leave the house for anything longer than briefly. I have been worried about it. I know that he has good instincts and knows himself better than anyone. But all of us humans are creatures of habit. Finding balance in various aspects of our lives is something we all must do to be happy. He does not like being around people, especially crowds, he says. Given some of his experiences, I can't say that I blame him.
I am so happy that his friend reached out to him today--Isaac is in many ways more grown up than a lot of the adults I meet. But, he has missed many childhood experiences and he feels a sense of loss because of this awareness. I tell him it is perfectly fine for him to have the desire to have these experiences now. In fact, I believe it is wise of him to do so.
The power of God is preeminent and I attribute this blessing to the prayers of all of us who have been praying for my son's healing and happiness. All of the time God is good. I am so aware of how I have been carried.
