Through a crisis pregnancy that was given a death sentence,
to a diagnosis of Down’s Syndrome and Autistic Spectrum Disorder,
through much laughter, joy and peace,
panic and tears,
I have learned to Anticipate Grace.
I don’t believe God has promised me a life without trouble,
but He does promise to give me strength in my weakness.
He promises to give me wisdom when I ask for it without doubting,
and He promises there is no fear in His perfect love,
because perfect love casts out fear!
To “Anticipate Grace” is to anticipate pleasure, a favorable decision, with the grace to perform a duty!
I Anticipate Grace-because God always gives us all we really need- when we need it.
I Anticipate Grace-because my child is of value to God, He will help provide what he needs.
I Anticipate Grace-because there is always pleasure and great joy in a full heart of love for my child.
I Anticipate Grace- because I trust in the goodness and love of God for our lives.
As I attempt to share our special needs family, I hope you will be able to Anticipate Grace in your own special need.
