A few weeks ago I was feeling so overwhelmed by the common theme told to me by all of Pin's therapists. "She needs to right her head" is what I hear again and again. I work SO hard with Pinny at home and it seems so beyond my control to teach my daughter a reflex that should come naturally.
I was wallowing in my pity when a text came in. It was from Lisa Wells (my dear friend who introduced me to Jeremy) whom I hadn't talked to in several days. It simply said, "But you are a shield around me, O LORD; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head (Psalm 3:3)."
I looked at the text. Then again. Then again with tears. Then again with a new understanding: The Lord is the one to do the work and I need to try my best but wait on Him to "lift her head." Then again with a humble heart at how personal our God is.
Will you join me in praying this for Pinny?
"Lord, lift Pinny's head."
