Blindness and Courage

Filed under: Uncategorized — lawsonjolly @ 5:00 am

Blindness is a harsh word.  I used it deliberately, however.  But I also used courage.  There is a story of blindness that testifies to courage . . . and resonates with hope.  I have felt impressed to share the story of our daughter.  Far beyond my regular readers, everyday there are a multitude of people who are searching the internet and are directed to one of my blogs because of some key word they used in their search.  I know that the word blindness, courage, and hope are some of the key words used often in a search.

And to you who found this site through searching for something related to blindness or courage or hope,  I urge you to see the following videos.  There is great encouragement to all of us –sighted or blind– through the remarkable story of our daughter.

This first video is from a Billy Graham special.   www.youtube.com/watch?v=alV4Ba8PCtU

The second video is from Good Morning America.   www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebk0MIFxk8o

For further encouragement, visit one of her websites:  www.jenniferrothschild.com  or www.womensministry.net.  You will also be able to read her story as printed in Decision Magazine from the Billy Graham link on her home page.

May you be blessed this day.

Lawson
