After watching John, Noel and Talitha Piper dance, I went to the website and created a video of my four children doing the same thing.
I half-thought as I was sizing my disabled son’s ‘elf’ photo that it might be depressing. To my surprise, watching my Paul ‘dance’ was incredibly encouraging.
Someday, all his limitations will be gone, and mine. Someday, he will be free to dance and sing and rejoice.
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying,
“Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:1-4
