What We Focus On Grows {Where Is Your Focus?}
November 10, 2015 by Courtney
I remember sitting in a Sunday evening service, over a decade ago, and watching the couple in front of me worship. Together this couple sang with their hands lifted high in abandon to God.  Their worship was beautiful and in that moment blessed me.
Now let’s fast forward to a decade later. Since then, the wife has given birth to a baby with down syndrome.  After this, they discovered the husband had a debilitating disease that would lead to him being in a wheel chair and needing full care.  This couple shined with the joy of the Lord through this dark time, despite the trials they were facing.  Then sadly, the husband lost his battle to his disease and passed away.
A few Sundays ago, this same woman — who I watched a decade ago worship with her husband — was a few rows in front of me.  This time she stood with her special needs daughter beside her and both of them sang with their hands lifted high to the Lord.

My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
