Mark 5:34 And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.
It’s so easy to pick out healings that Jesus preformed. Time after time in the New Testament we see Jesus healing. Regardless of the setting, the story, and the characters involved it’s evident that Jesus can heal and does regarless of the manner of illness.
So fast forward to yesterday, today, and perhaps tomorrow. Each of us knows someone who has been healed. Perhaps it’s a family member cured of cancer. And once again you can enlarge that view to include many physical problems.
A Swiss organization for people with disabilities, asked that question in a compelling way. They took a wide variety of disabled individuals and made masques to their exact size and disability. They then displayed them during the holidays in the fashion windows of great stores. Pro Infirmis plays an important role in advocating for and supporting people with disabilities through a wide range of programs, including political advocacy and legal assistance.

This holiday season help me get safely from store to store just like everyone else. There’s no need to list all the barriers handicap people face; we all know them. A lady in a wheelchair with what appeared to be a broken leg said to me, “I’m so thankful God has spared me from having to be in this wheelchair forever.” I nodded my head in approval and said, “praise God.” I never know what you went through until this happen was her ending comment.
If you want to bring some Christmas cheer to the life of someone handicap try opening the restroom door. Give them a chance to get across the roadway and into a store. Please don’t park in our spaces without a sticker. I think it’s time for me to light up my chair and get on with this great celebration. Merry Christmas one and all.
