Loving God.

Loving God.

Categories: , ,

The story of Joni Erickson Tada is an inspiring one. She has become an accomplished author and artist In spite of suffering a terrible accident that left her a quadriplegic. Over 25 years ago she married her husband, Ken. For her wedding she had planned to come down the center aisle in her motorized wheel chair. Just before her grand entrance she noticed two distressing problems. First, she had rolled over her beautiful gown which left a big grease spot and a noticeable tear, and second the flowers in her lap had slipped and sat cocked between her leg and the chair. She was filled with Love-goddisappointment, and then suddenly the doors to the auditorium opened, and she saw her husband to be.
Here was the man who was committing his love and his life to her. Joni later said, “Once I saw Ken’s face, all I could think of was him. Everything else—the people in the church, the flowers that were sitting a little askew on my lap, the fact that my dress didn’t fall right because I was sitting in a wheelchair, the grease marks, the rip in my gown all of it paled in comparison.”
That’s a simple yet beautiful description of true love. The kind of passion that blocks out everything less, and focuses on that one thing. This Sunday we’re going to take a look at the answer to one of the most important questions ever asked, just a hint it probably has something to do with Love!
