I just watched this, and I have to share it. It came through Saved by Grace (wonderful post, thanks!) and it is more than worth sharing….We are all made in the image of God…all…every child who has ever been created. Watch and then go to the link I posted at the bottom…and thank our loving Father for being the wonderful and glorious Creator and Father that He is. 🙂 ~AGM

“I have no words to say, I watched this video and was simply left speechless. This is from Nathan Bingham and was posted at Ligonier …
What happens when disability really hits home—when God hands you a challenge that tests your convictions in practical, heart wrenching ways?
The Sproul family was featured in an episode of “Joni and Friends” which offered a glimpse into the life of Shannon Sproul, daughter of R.C.Sproul Jr. and granddaughter of R.C.Sproul, who was born with a condition that left her profoundly disabled. This episode won a Silver Telly Award, which honors the very best local, regional, and cable television commercials and programs, as well as the finest video and film productions, and work created for the Web.
Shannon Macfarlane Sproul went home to be with the Lord this past Wednesday. “Joni and Friends” have graciously allowed us to share with you the segment that featured Shannon. You will see how she brought challenges and blessings to her family, but most significantly, how through her life, God’s sovereignty, compassion, and tenderness were undeniably displayed.”

Thank You Lord for this precious, beautiful life and powerful testimony to how wonderfully we are all created, and that every life is precious in Your sight. What an incredibly joyful reunion Shannon must have had with You and with her dear mom Denise. As they await their resurrected bodies and the reuniting of the rest of the family for eternity with You, we patiently wait with them and long for Your return.
Please keep the Sproul family in your prayers, as they celebrate that fact and yet dearly miss the ones they love and thank God for the truth that some day soon, there will be no distance between them ever again….and the same is true for all of us who are in Christ…Thank You Jesus! Maranatha!)~AGM
