“Think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths.
Don’t consider yourself to be wise; …” Proverbs 3:6,7
Although the puzzle piece is often used as a symbol for autism awareness, I wear it as a reminder to me that we are all different for a reason. Just like the pieces of a puzzle, each one of us is uniquely created on purpose, for a purpose. Regardless of a person’s disability, we all have strengths and weaknesses. We all have needs. We all have something to offer. A community is best served when everyone is a part of the picture.
For me, the battle happens when I start looking too hard at what others are doing, and begin longing to fit into the same places they do. Contentment only comes when we stop competing and comparing ourselves with others, when we are operating in the gifts we were given, filling the space that only we were meant to fill.
For now, I believe my main purpose is helping Morgan find hers. I am currently her part time job coach and full time personal assistant. I admit I feel very unqualified at times. The truth is, I don’t even feel qualified to figure out my own life without looking up constantly to the One who is. 😉
Above is a picture of Morgan with Mr. Steve and Mrs Leslie, picking up her first paycheck! We are very thankful to have this piece in place for her.
Each day, before my feet hit the floor, I ask God for guidance to help me make decisions that will lead Morgan & Mom to the places He has appointed specifically for each of us. There lies my trust and my peace.
Until Next Time,
Know The Hope!
