Sometimes Miracles Hide

I love this song! Every time I listen to it I cry. Preparing ahead of time doesn’t help. I even warned the boys and my mother the last two times, but the tears still streamed down my face.

It isn’t that negative feelings envelop me, and I am not giddy with happiness. I think that as I listen to the lyrics, I am overwhelmed with a combination of feelings—thankfulness, love, fear, joy, frustration, hopefulness, honor, and yes, even sadness over the loss of some of my dreams.

But I am also buoyed by the truth I hear. For thanks to God’s grace, I too have discovered the hidden miracle that is my daughter.

In this song, Bruce Carroll masterfully captures the emotions that swirl around parents/caregivers of children with disabilities and points to what we  ultimately need to realize–that our special children are much more of a blessing than a burden.

God does not make mistakes. “For it was You who created my inward parts; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:13-14a).

All of us, including those we regard as disabled, are created for a purpose: to glorify the Lord and share his love with others.

Given the chance, children with different abilities will bring great joy and true meaning to life. But not until Christians have learned to embrace their miracle children, can we hope the world will recognize their worth.

Thank you for the poignant reminder, Mr. Carroll, and for allowing the Lord to use you in such a profound way!

    We often do fail to see the blessings, because we truly do not know how to look. Continue with your courageous journey as many readers will be forever changed. You are a blessing to us, as is your whole family. Love you, Dawn
