AshleyIt breaks my heart to read about Ashley, a beautiful 9 year old girl, with permanent brain damage.

I have two beautiful children myself, and every time I read a story like this, I thank God for making my children healthy, and I pray to Him every day to keep them like that.

Give thanks to the beautiful, healthy people in your life. Children like Ashley are the children of God. He has his own mysterious ways in which he creates, loves and protects us. Ashley is no different. Maybe there is a reason for her being like this: God sent her to us to help you and me to appreciate what we have, to stop complaining about what we don’t have or how we wish things were.

Life is so uncertain, and in many ways unforgiving.

Go on and live to the fullest extent possible. Do something good for yourself, and the people in your life. Make a difference, and don’t forget to count your blessings.

Pray for dear Ashley today, and try to keep children like her in your prayers every day.
