Christmas Blessings

This morning I was having breakfast with a friend and was again convicted of my patheticness as related to being thankful, particularly as it relates to God. My friend has a son who is s sophomore in high school who has lost all of his hearing and part of his vision over the past several years. 

Recently he had told his dad that the worst part was he wouldn’t be able to hear Christmas music. For Christmas he simply wanted to be able to hear Christmas music and see Les Mis (because his school has put on the musical previously and he had been part of the tech crew).

This young was learning to be content with his malady and was accepting his new lot in life. The miracle began at Christmas as the family was as Christmas Eve service and he signed to his parents “I can hear the music” The next day, Christmas afternoon, he went to see Les Mis, wearing a pair of Closed Caption Wireless Glasses you can get from the movie theater, he again revealed that he could hear the music as well. Words were garbled and other sounds too, but for at least these brief periods of time he could hear the music. 

Will this young man’s hearing be restored? I don’t know. I pray so.

What would my wish have been? Surely much more than just hearing Christmas music! 

Again, and in combination with my earlier post today on the Sovereignty of God and Goodness, how much I have to be thankful for. Have pagan I act when I am not (see Rom. 1).

Lord thank you that  you continue to teach us through humility and humble people.
