Oh, Dear God Of All Creation,
Years ago in a downtown Chicago basement
I saw a "side-show" of "freaks and oddities."
A man without arms or legs was one of the exhibits. His
torso stood on a pedestal,
and he wore a sleeveless motorcycle jacket, which made me
think of one of life's adventures which he would never enjoy
I have never forgotten his sullen expression, and the sadness
I felt for him that day.
Nick Vujicic was similarly born:
armless and legless.
His triumph over challenge, and his love
and trust in You are sobering, saddening,
and greatly inspiring.
I pray for him and all who are born with severe physical
Thank you for the gifts you have given me, and please send
to those who face daunting prospects similar to those of
Nick Vujicic gifts of patience, fortitude, understanding,
and happiness in the face of their severe life challenges.
God please bless us all, and help us never
to complain of the difficulty of our lives!
