I copied this from Randy Alcorn’s blog/e-newsletter. Here is the Eternal Perspectives Ministry website: http://www.epm.org/home_mainPage.php Joni is an inspiration. I encourage you to read any of her books and view her artwork.
Randy Alcorn wrote: Many of us look forward to Heaven more now than we did when our bodies functioned well. Joni Eareckson Tada says it well:
“Somewhere in my broken, paralyzed body is the seed of what I shall become. The paralysis makes what I am to become all the more grand when you contrast atrophied, useless legs against splendorous resurrected legs. I’m convinced that if there are mirrors in heaven (and why not?), the image I’ll see will be unmistakably ‘Joni,’ although a much better, brighter Joni.”
