I am continually amazed at the fact that the God of the universe is mindful of us. He loves us so much and cares about us to the point that He didn’t leave us without hope. The coming of Jesus and His life, crucifixion, and resurrection are testament to that. And you and me, if we are followers of Jesus, have the supreme privilege of being a part of His plan of redemption for the world.
Have you ever thought about where He has placed you in His Kingdom. He has you where you are for a reason. Can you thank Him for that? Can you commit yourself anew to His plans for You. This is a great weekend to renew our love and dedication to the mission and vision God has for each one of our lives.
At LifePoint Church we are having five Easter services this weekend. We have two today (4:30 & 6:15 pm) and tomorrow we have three (8:15, 10:00 & 11:45 am). If you are in the area and can make it to one of our worship gatherings I encourage you to do just that. Look me up. Would love to chat for a bit. Special weekends at LifePoint are always memorable. I can’t wait to experience the gatherings this weekend.
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about our daughter Erin. I’ve been thinking about her aptitudes and abilities. People with Down Syndrome are usually marked by their disabilities. Let me share one ability Erin has:
We gave Erin an iPod touch for Christmas. It has a 32 gig capacity. We got one that big because of the amount of music Erin has on cd’s. Well when we gave it to her, she wanted no help in figuring it out. And sure enough she was able to access music and choose music to play and has had a GREAT time listening to it. In fact we wondered if we created a bit of a monster because she carries it around the house with her listing to her music, many times without head phones.
Well about a month ago she discovered the camera on the iPod. So just a couple of days ago I down loaded to my computer 162 pictures Erin took. In fact she figured out how to use both cameras on the unit, so she takes pictures of herself and others. I thought I’d include a few below. So when you think of people with disabilities, first think of their abilities!
Do you know some one with a developmental disability? Share with us what that person’s abilities are!
Have a great Easter weekend!
