Something I just read
I just read a blog post from one of my friends from high school. They have a beautiful daughter that has had a rough go at things in her health. Her name is Abbie Grace (pictured), and she's beautiful. You can go here to read more. At the top of their blog, it states: "All things created by God are perfect even if we don't see it that way. Abbie was created to be our "perfect" 1p36 gift! James 1:17 "Every good gift and perfect gift is from above." That should inspire all of us to worship. I always thank God for health. Not so much perfect health, but health in general. When we do anything at all, we should thank God for the ability to do it. Sure, there maybe some that can do more we can, and there are always some that can do less, no matter what your situation. We must be positive. There is so much negativity, and pessimism in our culture right now, and the election is helping anything. Our answer lies with and from God. May that statement never become cliche in our hearts. One of my favorite old songs is "The Sold Rock". It starts by saying, "My hope is built on nothing less that Jesus' blood and righteousness." We have a choice. We can look down or up. Jesus has given us a gift. We are free to live, love, and laugh, with the confidence in nothing less than the cross. Thanks Kim, for your attitude and spirit, and your example for your kids.
