Amanda and I were able to drive up yesterday, Thursday, to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. My parents graciously agreed to take care of all five kids so we could have some time for just the two of us. Sometimes you just need to get away for a couple days to recharge.
The falls are incredible to view with massive chunks of ice everywhere. Ice chunks that are huge! But even with the ice all around, the water still flows over the falls into the basin below.
I told Amanda today that I had an idea for this blog that relates to Niagara Falls. You see the water coming over the falls, primarily the American side, is being restricted by the ice. Yes the water does make it to the basin below, but it's flow isn't as easy. It has some icy obstacles. That's the same with those of us with some type of physical limitation. We want to flow in the way that seems normal and easy, but sometimes we have an iceberg in the way that doesn't allow the flow of our life to run smoothly.
For some the iceberg is only there for a season. For others it is always there. My iceburg or ice chunk will always limit my flow but despite of that I will continue to move forward. Never give up when things are tough-even when the icebergs in life disrupt your flow.
I know it's a short blog, but my priority is to go to supper with my wife right now. (I think you understand)
