Late night reflection...

Well, I promised an update before the end of the month and so here is a quick couple thoughts regarding Christian and his challenge.

The question we get asked that seems to always underlie his challenge is simple, yet huge: Why?

The answer is simple, yet huge as well: It's right there in scripture - John 9: 1-3.

When asked by the disciples why a blind man was blind, had the man or his parents "sinned", Jesus answered, "Neither he nor his parents sinned; it is so that the works of God might be made visible through him."

The more you re-read and reflect on that, the deeper and larger it gets, I know.

It doesn't really answer the "why" question, it just "is". Finding peace in that simple, yet huge question and response is what it is.

Spend some quiet time with it, you'll see what I mean.

-- Aida and Christian are headed to Houston today for clinic and a fishing trip - the Texas Oilmen's group takes the dialysis kids out once a year to a private lake and it is a great time for the kids. Thank you, TOBI volunteers!!!

Take care,

Kiki's Dad
