Yesterday Was A Great Day

Linky, Maddi and Lucas.

Yesterday was a great day.

We went to the park. Behind the park was a big pond and walking path. As soon as we stepped out of the car, Lincoln decided he had no interest in the playground, he wanted to walk around the pond. He grabbed my hand and off we went with the other 2 in tow. They grabbed sticks, had races, and Linky talked about all the sharks that were in that pond. So, Lucas set him straight that sharks don't live in ponds. He said, "OH, ok Lucas!" He loves his brother and all things that Lucas guides him in. I truly believe he understands and takes it in too. I love watching these 3 babies (they're not babies) blossom and grow together. I love watching them teach each other and play together. I truly believe that Lincoln having sibling pulls him along and helps him in so many ways.

When we took the above picture, I said, "C'mon guys please sit down with your sticks and let Mommy take your picture!" They were resistant and then Linky sat down first and said, "Aw Ok Mom!" Then they all sat, "Yelled high yah" (sp?) and smiled for the camera. I remember when Linky would not ever set still for a picture, let alone initiate it!

My night ended last night laying down with Lincoln. He said, "Oh, I'm scared!" I asked, "What are you scared of Linky?" He replied, "Big scary Monster!" So, I said, "Okay Linky, let's pray!" I said the following and he repeated EVERY word with great enthusiasm.

"God, you did not give me a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. Thank you that I don't have to be afraid. I thank you that your Word says that the angel of the Lord encamps around me and delivers me from every evil work. I thank you that I have the mind of Christ, I'm set free, I'm delivered, I'm healed, thank you Jesus for healing me. I love you!"

When we were done, he hugged me and said, "Oh, I LOVE YOU, I not scared Mommy!"

How awesome is that!? My son is becoming more and more free from autism every single day and I can't even explain how happy that makes me. God is good.

Yesterday was really a great day.


  1. So happy to see this post from you, Stacie! I happened to randomly check since it has been a long time since our last emails. I loved reading this and the last entry, especially now that we're expecting our 2nd (girl!) in December. How wonderful that your little ones have the blessing of one another. It means a lot of extra work for you, especially while they're young, but you just cannot beat the built-in friendships they will have in life - and it looks like they are off to such a sweet start!

  2. Hi Stacie,
    same here. I envy your beautiful family (esp the kids) so much as I have only 1 so far. I believe siblings are great blessings and that since God says we shall be joyful mother of many, I claim that as well! you encouraged me. Praise the Lord!
