Mary did some walking today and then she got to do therapy in a swing: )
She’s had some hard weeks but today she was smiling some in therapy so I’d say we’re headed in the right direction.
I’ve been listening to a new album by the Grey Havens today and absolutely love their song about Heaven called “See You Again”. I’ve been listening to it practically on repeat and it’s gotten my wheels turning.
Thinking about what God has in store really puts Mary’s disabilities into perspective. If you think about it, we’re actually all disabled in this life. Certainly some of us need more help here and I hope and pray we serve Mary faithfully. But we can all only see in part now. The more we feel and know our blindness and fumbling inability to be what God made us to be, the more we cling to Christ. And one day we will be changed; we will see fully.
Similarly, right now I only see flashes and glimpses of God’s plan for Mary and though the faith feels like a distant dream many days, there I’ll see fully. And as limited as I sometimes fear her life will be (we lost 3 more from the CFC family in the last couple of weeks) we all only have a spark. Our life is like a flower of the field and we all flourish and fade in the blink of an eye.
But this is no morbid post because as limited and short as this life is, it’s nothing when compared to what lies ahead!
Romans 8:18 “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.”
1 Corinthians 15 bouncing through because there’s so much: “…but we will all be changed… and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed… ‘Death is swallowed up in victory'”
