Just because you don't see it...

Excuse my redundancy. I think I wrote about this before but I really need to do it again today. MS is a disease that affects different people in different ways. The truth of the matter is... many of us have multiple "scars" - which is the definition of sclerosis. Some of us deal with it more than others - it's more evident.

But just like pain medication we take him for what he is worth or what he can do and we put him back on the shelf... until needed again.

God is not a quick fix. He needs to be considered as more. He should be all, right? I thought that's why we loved him?
