Today I feel the need to share with you some of my musings. Over the last year I have experienced what I now refer to as my “Peno Gemizo Elio” stage. “What on earth are you talking about?” you might ask. Well, before I answer that question, I would like to muse just a bit more. And along the way you may figure it out for yourself.
Life for me has been a roller coaster ride. I know that is a worn out, trampled on metaphor, but it just fits. In the truest sense, I have had numerous hills, valleys, and sharp curves. When you have a child with special needs, the norm is nonexistent.
Just as I was settling in to the childhood stage of a developmentally delayed daughter like a warm, cozy cup of spiced tea, I suddenly found that adulthood had arrived and it was time to rethink, recharge, and make a turnout (a mechanical installation enabling railway trains to be guided from one track to another at a railway junction).
I must say that I have handled this poorly still uncertain of the correct way to negotiate the tracks so to speak.
So, what is a girl to do?
I have latched on to Jesus like a bird in a hurricane!
Most days I have no idea what I am doing, or what I should do. Yet, I know Jesus, and He knows what to do. Just knowing He is there somehow makes sense of it all.
Psalm 18:1- … I love you, LORD; you are my strength. 2 The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the strength of my salvation, and my stronghold.
Psalm 18:28 LORD, you have brought light to my life; my God, you light up my darkness.
So, what does Peno Gemizo Elio mean? To receive into the soul what serves to refresh, strengthen, nourish. Fill yourself with God. (New Testament Greek)
“Woooh! Wooooh! I’m making a turnout.
