Acceptance Seems Easier for Some than for Others

The first thing we noticed when we saw Sam in his hospital bed post-surgery is that, as usual, he was accepting of his situation. In his eight years, he has endured four or five surgeries--all aimed at making his daily life easier and more comfortable.

But Sammie doesn't understand the whys and the wherefores. He simply trusts the love of his mom and dad, and takes everything in stride.

How wonderful it would be if we could trust our heavenly Father in the same way. He knows things we can never know--or understand--and He loves us with an everlasting love. If God allows something to intrude on our lives, then there's got to be a good reason for it. And He will carry us through the event.

Lord, help me to learn this lesson once and for all. Help me learn from Sam.
