(More pictures of Faith!)

It has been a bitter sweet month for the Businelle's.  First, the sweet.  If you clicked on the picture link above, you have already seen how our sweet little girl is growing.  She has brought much joy , laughter, and noise into our home.  Jill, myself, and Sugar are adjusting to the "new" schedule.  I'm sure all of you with children know what I mean.  And, oh how it is worth it!  

A word on blessings.  If you have followed this website for any amount of time, you know that Jill and I feel blessed by the Lord.  It is true that I am in a wheelchair.  I am paralyzed.  I can't use my hands.  But, I am blessed.  If I should die before I wake, I need not pray to the Lord my soul to take.  I have already given Him my soul. ..  and my heart.  It doesn't seem like that long ago when I was in the hospital.  Eleven times my heart stopped.  Eleven times the Lord restarted it.  He restarted it to bless me and to bless others through me.  Yes, I can't walk, but I walk in the Lord.  Yes, I am paralyzed, but there are those who are paralyzed in their faith.  I cannot use my hands, but I use my mind for the Lord instead of my hands for the flesh.  

I am more reflective this month than normal because of the loss of my grandmother.  One of the pictures from above shows four generations including my beautiful MeMe.  She went to be with the Lord in the early morning hours of April 1st.  I was able to spend some time with her on the evening before she left us.  Even though she was in the ICU with all of the tubes and monitors that go along with that place, I felt a peace while sitting with her.  During the 15 minutes that we talked, her pulse dropped from a 140 or so down into the 50s.  I told her how much I loved her, and how happy I was that she would be getting out of there soon.  And most of all, how glad I was that I would get to see her soon.  It's true, you know, I will see her soon.  Whether it be a year from now or 50 years from now, that's a blink of an eye compared to the eternity that I will be with her and the Lord in heaven.  What a great peace I have in this knowledge.  I pray that you have this same peace in your life.  And, if you don't, I pray that you reach out and grab it.  

John 3:16 - "For God had such love for the world that he gave his only Son, so that whoever has faith in him may not come to destruction but have eternal life."
