The above photos show Leo making some strides here. Like, in that last picture, he is actually putting food in his mouth. THAT'S A HUGE DEAL.
Then the first picture is a little bit of his birth certificate which arrived in the mail today. Hooray! That's been on the way for months now. We can now apply for a social security number for him and then begin officially changing his name on important documents like health insurance and doctors.
Leo also got a new walker today (the shiny yellow one pictured above.) We specifically prayed for that as a family last night, and (at last) here it is. We had been borrowing one from our therapist but it was a bit big for him.
These are, of course, all good things for Leo. But I was reminded recently of just how faithful God is to answer prayer in general. My morning devotions had brought me to John 14 where I read:
"And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son."
Really? I thought to myself? I believe this in theory... but how often do I fail to give my concerns over to God in prayer?
I have a lot of growing to do there, I am sure.
Still, a shot-gun smattering of answered prayers sure is encouraging.
