Discovering joy in unexpected places – a journey into Down's syndrome, Dyspraxia & Autism

Sacred

My non verbal daughter has no words, only sounds.

Sacred sounds, echoing throughout the kitchen temple; our church.

Where sacrifice and worship and silent gasping prayers rise, mingled with coffee and toast and sudocrem.

There are crumbs in the butter again.

Mmmmm is one of those sounds,

And that is the sound of my name.

Immanuel. This is God with us; with me.

Here.
