You may have noticed some recent posts quoting from Hannah Hurnard’s book, Mountain of Spices. It’s probably clear by now that I like what she has to say, have learned a lot, and see how her words of wisdom can apply specifically to those of us with special need siblings.

This is another quote that seemed especially fitting.

“As you meet again with the evil and cruel things… remember the lesson which you have learned… and ‘count it all joy,’ for it all constitutes a glorious opportunity whereby you may learn to overcome evil with good and to share in the victory of love.”

It made me think about how Alyssa constantly demonstrates the victory of love. She never holds grudges. Never calls to mind the wrongs you’ve done. Is never too busy to give a hug or a compliment.

We could all stand to take lessons from the special people around us on “the victory of love.”
