Of all the things I read or watched this year, the video below has stayed with me the most, I think.
God didn’t ask my opinion about having a son with multiple disabilities. I’m grateful for that as I would have responded wrongly, and I did respond wrongly. But somewhere along the way he changed my heart about that boy and his disabilities.
And I have a long way to go. I’ve never met Dr. McQuilken, but the easy way he accepted his new assignment from God as his wife’s Alzheimer’s disease progressed instructs me about my heart and where I want it to be oriented.
Justin Taylor first blogged about Dr. and Mrs. McQuilken in February. The three articles are devastating and beautiful.
May it be that God does as Justin asked in his post: May God make us men like this.
