Today, after posting my last entry, I received an e-mail from the sister of Jon who wrote the film that I was recommending! I don't know how she knew that I had blogged about her film and her brother, but somehow she found out. She thanked me for recommending her film and for the support! She also gave me the rest of the quote that I had posted at the end of the entry by Morris West. So, I thought that I would share it with all of you.
As read in the Teachings of Jon by Jennifer Owensby:
"I know what you are thinking. You need a sign.
What better one could I give than to make this little one whole and new?
I could do it. But I will not. I am the Lord, and not a conjurer.
I gave this mite a gift I denied to all of you, eternal innocence.
To you, he looks imperfect, but to Me he is flawless.
He will never offend Me, as all of you have done.
He is necessary to you. He will evoke the kindness that will keep you human.
His infirmity will prompt you to gratitude for your own good fortune.
And more, he will remind you everyday that I am Who I am, that My ways are not yours,
I have chosen you. You have not chosen Me.
This little one is My sign to you.
From "Clowns of God", By Morris West
Again, Thank You God for the lessons learned and for sending us reminders of just how blessed we are by You!
"And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name." John 20:30
