At Wrestling with an Angel, Greg Lucas shares the lessons in life he has learned as the father of a disabled son. In a recent post, I love you – no matter what, Greg describes the daily violence he experiences as he tries to care for his dear son:

Almost daily I have to physically restrain my son. It is a physical battle to change his diaper and clean his body. Many times while cleaning and changing him I have been kicked in the face, bitten, smacked, clawed, or hit with flying objects. It is not all that uncommon to come away from a cleanup with a bloody lip or a new scratch.

I must confess that on many mornings I leave Jake’s room dejected, hurt and emotionally drained. And many nights I find myself restraining the violent resistance of a struggling boy by wrapping him in my arms against his will and gently whispering, “I love you. I love you. I love you…no matter what.”

But deeply moving though this is, Greg goes on to describe how it is only his own experience of the unconditional love of God the Father, who keeps on loving…no matter what, that keeps him loving…no matter what.
