I'm so blown away by the Lord's mercies to me. We are in week 2 of Breaking Free and it feels so much like the orchestration of the final stanza in God's Psalm to me. I eagerly await each days' lesson and each week's session.

And yesterday-the Lord allowed me to see Him at work. Edmund had orientation at AI. He called me at 12:30 all upset and asked me to call his girlfriend, L, because he had locked her keys in her car on accident. I did that and when I called him back to tell him not to worry, he was crying and stressed out because orientation was at 1 and he had overslept. It was 12:30 and he had a 40 minute drive. I spoke to him calmly and told him I would pray for him and he said "Please, do mom." I talked to him for several minutes, just reassuring him that everything would work out.

We had lunch today; Edmund, L and me. He told me about the orientation and I asked him what time he actually got there. "I wasn't late at all," he said. "I was there just a few minutes before it started." I said that that's because God was taking care of it and he replied that he knew that. He said "God takes care of me ALOT!"

My hubby and I were feeling so helpless yesterday. My boy has so far to go and so many things he isn't getting done. But God... But God hears our prayers for him and is present in his life. Maybe Edmund is beginning to understand that. It will make all the difference in his life.
