Today I made this little piece to go along with a magnificently framed canvas of Christ healing a man at the Pool of Bethesda. The two will be featured together in a prominent place in a friend’s home for everyone to see.
The man who gave this commencement speech, Kenneth E. Behring, is a philanthropist and founder of the Wheelchair Foundation and he spoke about the blessings that you and I share, blessings that are so mundane to us but are so life-changing for other individuals of the world who are not so fortunate. I highly recommend reading the whole speech (provided below). It doesn’t take money or influence to change someone’s life or to bring a ray of sunshine to someone who needs a pick-me-up. Loving someone and helping them “sit in the sun” can be as simple and as easy as giving a phone call, smiling, or sending an email.
How grateful I am for the people in my life who have done this for me – in some way, shape, or form.
I hope that I, too, can do this for someone else.
