In You We Have Seen The Beauty And Majesty Of The Father!


Some people can change the world while being home-bound in a wheelchair. And without ever uttering an intelligible word, they end up blessing the lives of all those they come into contact with. Such has been the case with a young man who passed away a few years ago, the teen son of my niece and her courageous husband.

I don’t know the depth and width of the sacrifice required to care for those in constant need. That vision of understanding is only opened up for brief moments to us who observe from afar. What I can see is the blessings that the Lord bestows upon all those who choose to serve with love unfeigned and who follow the words of the apostle John, when he stated:

“God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.”

And so, while I don’t think any of us would volunteer to live a life such that we felt trapped in an imperfect physical body, those that so suffer offer to us, the grace and blessing of having God dwell in us, if we choose to open our hearts and let love flow unceasingly. Such human experience can transcend this mortal life, and lift our souls to heavenly places that are reserved for those whose Christ-like charity suffereth all. The service that loved ones render on behalf of those who so suffer, enriches and elevates the spirit.

At the passing of such individuals, who serve as instructional instruments in the hands of God, we cry and mourn, not only because we love them, but because they have brought us closer to our creator. Once homebound, they are now home bound in a joyful reunion with the Father where He will embrace them and say, “Well done, my good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” (Matthew 25:21)

To all such travelers who have given their lives in service to us, may your journey be filled with the knowledge that you have left behind to us far more than we ever gave to you. In you, we have seen the beauty and majesty of all that the Father is, was, and will forever be. You will be missed but never forgotten!
