Who was our son Mathew Daniel Frank ?
Mathew was an amazing 9 years boy who was confident an fearless despite his multiple disabilities. He strived daily to use the abilities he was given by Christ to break through barriers in his community. He was a great imitator of Christ. Ephesians 5:1 (therefore is great imitators of God.)
Mathew knew his assignment. He was called upon to use his unique life to connect a community around the world and share his heart as he reached out to touch everyone he met. Mathew in is short life touch thousands of lives around the world. What Mathew shared with us was so important in the eyes of GOD.
He had figured out how to live his life well.
He was joy filled.
Simply what he shared was:
- That you love well,
- That you love your neighbor,
- Share the message of who Christ is ,by your Actions to others,
- Be happy in the journey, having Joy. The Joy that surpasses understanding, The Joy of Christ
- And for us to Have "Jesus feel us.”
Mathew’s simple message was
"Jesus feel me."
"Feel my heart, my mind, my body.
Feel the energy it takes to get through my day.
Feel my prayers for my family, my friends.
Feel my need to be a great imitator of you on this journey. "
Many of us live our whole life and never now this simplicity of what Christ asked us to do.
If we all strive like Mathew to have a legacy as a great imitator of Christ,
loving your neighbor, and keeping Christ as the center of our world.
The world would look very different.
