This spoke to me. Everyone has limitations. Yet, sometimes limitations lead to amazing innovations. I'm actively working on a post with that at the center very soon at https://dyslexianowwhat.substack.com/

Excellent. I have 4 kids, 15 grandkids and 8 great grandkids and how very unique they all are. Comparison is the devils work for sure. Thank you for sharing.

I really appreciate this article. We have 4 adult sons in their 20's. Two have X-linked Lissencephaly, seizures and Sensory Processing Disorder. There have been many challenges along the way and more coming as my husband and me enter retirement and continue to care for them at home. They have taught us more about God, His grace, life, etc than we could ever teach them. God has used our sons and our family over and over again to make Himself known to others and for His glory. If you get the opportunity sometime, read, "Wrestling with an Angel, a Story of Love, Disability and the Lessons of Grace" by Greg Lucas, (2010, Cruciform Press). It speaks to everyone, not just families with Special needs and is life-changing.

Does He not use these 'imperfections' (in the eyes of the world) to chisel us into who He wants us to be? Through these challenges, He opens our eyes, allowing us to see Him more clearly as we rely on Him for our strength. My weaknesses have made me stronger. Thank you, Jesus!

Was I wrong? God made amazing miracles happen in my life. Sin could have stolen God's calling on my life, but grace & mercy prevailed. My children are grown and I always told them they could be anything God wanted them to be.... so, maybe I wasn't wrong. As I type, I realize that it sounds alot like " you can be antything you want to be". Yet, the emphasis on "what God" not "what you". PTL
