"Finding meaning in our difficulties
 is necessary for survival. 
It's far more important than skills, talents,
 intelligence, or change of circumstances. 
In God's kingdom, meaning can always be found in suffering. 
It is meaning that sustains us through 
deep disappointments 
and allows us to perceive HIS-appointments."
from Angel Behind the Rocking Chair
by Pam Vredevelt, 
an inspiring book about her son with 
Down syndrome.

Thank you, Karen, for this beautiful quote from this book! We have close friends who have a daughter with Downs Syndrome and they are such a blessing.

I really like your new blog background! So warm and inviting!
