Do you remember the days of being a carefree little girl, running through the yard playing catch me if you can? I do. I was the one who always got caught, but I gave a good chase, I think. Our sweet Sam has Cerebral Palsy and he is at the age of playing those childhood games.
Only he can't keep up with the other kids. He told us on the way home last night from big brother's soccer game that he couldn't run, everyone was faster than him-then the biggie--WHY? What do you say to that? The other kids are just older than you. But that is a lie. The fact is, he just can run as fast, and at this point they will always catch him. I don't know why, that's just the way it is.
That is what I wanted to say, but as Mommy and heart-healer, I couldn't. When he said the same thing again this morning, his Mommy reminded him that not to long ago we didn't think he'd even be able to walk. But he can and he can run. Not very fast, but he can run. Mommy reminded him this is the way Jesus made him and He loves him just like he is....and so does Mommy and Daddy.
So it doesn't matter if he can't outrun everyone else and they always catch him, it is what he CAN do that matters. And in Christ, he can do anything he wants.
