speaking of saints...

I think I made the acquaintance of a saint while he was still earth-bound.  He spent most of his time in a wheelchair during the years that he was in my class.  In spite of pain that was nearly constant, he always had a twinkle in his eye and a great sense of humor.  He brought sunshine into our classroom on a daily basis.  His life had value.  Cody would have been 18 today.  We remembered him, and oddly enough, 2 of my current students celebrated birthdays today, both turning 14!
I know that St. Cody is looking down from heaven.  And I can picture him smiling with that twinkle in his eye!

  1. God blessed us with one of His saints for too short of a time.
