This video has been making the rounds on Facebook and the blogosphere (recently on The Deacon's Bench), and I wanted to make sure all of you had a chance to see it. Four minutes that will stop you in your tracks and make you think about your life and whatever it is that has got you stressed or disappointed or full of fear and doubt. It's a beautiful love story.
I was in tears by the time the dad said this about his son:
"This is how God gripped us. This is how God was merciful to us. He has given us something very, very precious through our son. Our son is a gift, and it was because he gave us this little boy, who is so different from every little boy I've ever met...that he has done the work on my heart, your heart, and so many other people's hearts. I wanted to tell that story. This was grace. This was grace."
This is faith.
