Rediscovering joy in doing the norm of life.

Tonight I heard the good news that Dr. Shane Clifton has more movement and feeling in his right thumb and index finger. I can truly appreciate the feeling of joy Shane has in discovering he has more mobility then before.

When I was immobilised a number of years back from Viral Encephalitis; and my mobility started to increase, I had to be taught how to get out of a chair. I remember the day I excitedly told some people who visited me that I had been taught how to get out of a chair.

And they looked at me with blank looks, nodding their heads with a sort of glazed look on their faces; replying to me… that’s good. It was more than good, it was fantastic. For me it was a time of joy. I was starting to learn to do stuff that I once took for granted.

Shane, I pray that the Lord will continue to bring about more mobility and feeling in your body. I pray that he will restore the connections that need restoration. And I pray that you will be joyful in what you can do and continue to discover every day something you can do that you were not able to do the day before.
