An ice cream cone on a warm summer evening, a walk around the lake, an early morning cup of coffee, devotions in your favorite chair...all refreshment. Paul wrote in Romans about his desire to come to his friends and be refreshed by their company (Romans 15:32). Paul spoke this way numerous times when describing his friendships in Christ. When life brings hardship, refreshment is especially dear.

A diagnosis also sheds some light and gives helpful insight to parents or others who are in a child’s life.

Greg Lucas is too good a writer to remain a cop. He tells the diaper-fouling story of a strong teenaged son with the mental capacity of a 2-year-old who makes daily routines a violent battle. His story of love, disability, and lessons of grace published by Cruciform Press, in Wrestling With an Angel, is compact, like dynamite. Want a few sticks to explode in your heart? Here are a dozen brief excerpts:
