Adam's new look

At Adam's 7 year well checkup he failed the eye screening so we were referred on to see an ophthalmologist. At that appt we learned that Adam is farsighted, especially in his left eye. A lot of times they don't correct for farsightedness in kids but Adam's was pretty bad and they felt it probably made every distance blurry for him. So we ordered him glasses!

A few weeks later Adam's new glasses came in. It took some getting used to, apparently farsighted people don't usually have the immediate "wow" when they put on their glasses for the first time. Their eyes and brain have been accommodating so much it can make things blurry with the glasses on at first.

I love how handsome he looks in them!!

The first day back after spring break was Adam's first time wearing his glasses to school. He was feeling a little nervous about it but his awesome teacher Mrs. R was so thoughtful and wore her glasses that day too :-)

Crazy Brothers!! Adam is a bit of a jokester, I'm not really sure what to make of him sometimes LOL ;)

He is also doing some daily patching to help strengthen his weak eye

I love love love my precious Adam. He is growing up so much and I just love this new addition to his look. They seem to fit his personality already. Now that he's had his glasses for several weeks now, he can really tell a difference! He puts them on first thing in the morning and wears them all day until it's time for bed. He's doing a great job taking care of them and I'm so happy that he can see better now too!

He looks amazing in them! Glad he's older when you needed to patch his eye. he'll actually cooperate!
Christ went through all this for us, that we might have hope! Praying!
Isaiah 53:7-10: He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.

Christ suffered in our place that we might have the hope of Heaven! Always praying!
Isaiah 53:11-12 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

Life can be hard at times, but the victory is ours through Christ because of His death and resurrection.! Put your trust in Him! Praying!
1 Corinthians 15:54-57 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Jesus, our Redeemer lives! Praying that you have a blessed Easter, knowing that because He lives, we can live also!
Job 19:25-27 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.

Know that I'm here praying!
Revelation 21:1-4 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Our Savior is saying these words. Always praying so very hard!
Revelation 21:5-7 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
