Autism Mom – God is always in Control

By Melody Kramer

Sometimes I worry, I get frustrated, and anxiety fills my soul. I am uncertain about things and I get overwhelmed. Just the other day, I felt all these emotions and felt consumed with what we were going to do. I had bought Disneyland tickets and reserved our day for June 1st.

I started to panic a little after reading that there was no tram. Instead, you would have to walk from the parking garage to Disneyland.

Though my stress was more about, you had to walk back after a big day at Disneyland with two autistic boys.

Plus, I was reading where it was best to line up at the parking garage before they opened.

Oh, the thought of waking my boys up very early and getting them out the door, I could feel the stress rise within me. I started to think maybe I should have never bought the tickets and said a prayer, Dear God, what am I going to do, help. 

Then out of the blue came an invite to spend two nights at The Howard Johnson Hotel in Anaheim by The Mommy Blogger Tribe I belong to. It just so happened it was from May 31st to June 2nd. I had no clue this hotel was right across the street from Disneyland and within walking distance until we checked in.

I couldn’t have asked for more of a perfect two days at the hotel and a fun-filled day at Disneyland.

It’s incredible how things work out when you turn them over to God. 

Joshua 1:9 NIV Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
