Just beautiful. God works in mysterious ways.

This is one of my favorite songs...used to stream it a lot on Sunday mornings in the chat room.

He has such focus when doing something that he loves!
I know friends with autistic children and the way they are able to channel their energies into music and art is amazing. I hope he continues to use his gift!

We need to see things like this - to remind us of the things we might lose view of...

I needed to see this, Mom. You may not know it but I have one autistic child in my classroom this year and another I suspect is autistic. I often become frustrated and confused by their behaviors. This helped remind me that they are God's gift too and that I need to pray more to help get us through the day. They have a lot to give - I may just need to look harder for it. All of my students are gifts and I need to look at my time with them more like a gift from God - not as another day to get through. Thanks for helping renew my energy to get through this year!
