Fellowship Friday!

25 Jul

Being an older sibling of a special needs child comes with certain challenges. Even more so for eight year old Noah Aldrich, though not for reasons you may think. Noah is an average eight year old with a six year old brother Lucas. Lucas was born with a malformed brain and because of that he has something called lissencephaly. Lucas is bound to a wheelchair and can not speak, though that doesn’t stop him from showing his pleasure when Noah comes into the room! The two have a very special bond, so much so that when Noah signed up for his local youth triathlon it wasn’t a question of whether Lucas would be watching from the sidelines or if Lucas would participate alongside his brother! Nope Noah pushed, and pulled Lucas through the entire course! The event was a two hundred meter swim, a three mile bike ride and a mile run. Just a little perspective Lucas weighs about fifty pounds and the cart for Noah’s bike to carry Lucas was about forty pounds, that was an additional ninety pounds for eight year old Noah to drag behind him for the entire three mile bike leg! Ninety pounds! I can’t even lift that weight I don’t think! These two brothers are amazing little men! They are a true testament to boundless love! I pray we can all show a sliver of this love with our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ! God bless all of you and have a safe God filled weekend!

    These are the special people.
    These are the people the lord will work is miracles on…one way to put it is that for those who can’t see will see again.
    Those who can’t walk will walk again.

    Yesterday…well the day before, now i was going through Tim Hortons drive through (yeah, don’t be surprised) but i seen this Chinese guy looking for cans and as he was walking away i called him over but he didn’t hear me, i looked on the back of his ear and noticed he had a hearing aid, i had to do something so i yelled louder and he looked back.
    I looked in my cup holder and had a $5 bill sitting there so i gave it to him,put my hand on his shoulder and said God bless.
    He smiled and said thank you.

    It means more from the heart to help a special needs person than it does for a wealthy person.
    God bless everyone who will help a special needs person in any way.
