I saw this a few days ago...
It is so easy to let whatever we struggle with consume us and take our focus off of doing good and serving God. We also have the tendency to work on fixing our problems rather than fixing our eyes on things above.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 says: "For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever." For me, things don't get more encouraging than that!
Tonight, when Levi walked unassisted into the church building, several people started clapping, and I thought I'd start bawling right there in the middle of the foyer. It meant so much to have people that excited for our sweet boy. He has worked so hard to reach this developmental milestone.
I took this video just before we left for Bible class. I didn't even notice the sound Levi was making until I uploaded the video. Wow.
Thanks for the great gift, Miles :)
