Pieces of the puzzle...where are they all?

So many people have stopped me, texted me, emailed me, called me to ask how Malone is. It's so hard to describe something that is so hard to understand.  God gave me the visual in this picture of a puzzle that you put together but there are pieces that have fallen under the table and you can't find them.  You can still see the big picture on the puzzle and what it is supposed to be but it's not complete.  That's how Malone's brain is right now.  There are pieces missing.  As I've said in a previous post counting, telling time, spelling, etc.  All missing pieces.  But some pieces there.

Two short stories that tell the ironies:  Last night riding in the car he was surprised when I turned my high beams on and said "whoa those are bright, where did those come from?  How did you do that?"  But earlier when I thought he had on basketball shorts with the number 26 on them and he says "Mom, you know you can't have the number 26 as a basketball number."

All I can think is that this is fascinating.  I just wish I wasn't studying it in my own child's brain!  

So we are searching under the table for the missing pieces and we are believing God to show them to us.  Sweet Melissa posted this verse this morning "I'll stay with you, I'll protect you wherever you go, and I'll bring you back to this very ground. I'll stick with you until I've done everything I promised you."  Genesis 28:15

We believe God in this promises to bring back the ground that has been lost for Malone.  But as Malone and I talked about, in God's time.  And God's time is not our time.  So until then, we will be here...

Looking for puzzle pieces.
