I had decided on my theme, but not written my article before the news of the Manchester bombing hit. The theme 'celebrating life' seems even more appropriate after these terrible events which were designed to destroy rather then bring life.
My musings on the subject of life, began on a far happier note than those which I speak of above. I have been struck recently by several events and conversations about celebrating life. One of these events was a party I attended a few weeks ago, to celebrate a remarkable young man and God's faithfulness to him and his family. Nathaniel, is no ordinary young man, his autism, epilepsy and other needs mean that he is entirely dependent upon others for everything.
