The Sacrifice

My granddaughter has broken out with a terrible rash as is very fussy. It seems as if my new granddaughter is allergic to the dairy in mother's milk. Therefore, my daughter has to follow a dairy-free diet for the next few months.

Have you ever tried to find items that do not have dairy in them? It can be a real struggle.

Hence the purpose of this particular blog.

My daughter has to put forth quite a sacrifice so that the baby will get better.

The giving of yourself for the betterment of another is quite admirable in my book. It takes a conscience decision to say, "It is not about me".

Although a change in diet is nothing as compared to the laying down of one's life for another, I am very sure if that was required, it would be done.

In John 15:13, Jesus says, "Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends".

I do not know of any parent who would not be willing to lay down their life to save one of their own children if it was required of them.

And once again I am reminded that I have a Father who loved and sacrificed.

A Father who let His own son die so that I might live forever.

A true sacrifice of love.

  1. My neice is allergic to ALL dairy, and yes it is very hard to be dairy free. She is two and sometimes it makes her sad that she can't have things that others have, or things that look good like cookies, or cakes, or ice cream. They have to be very careful when they take her out to eat that no dairy food even touches her food. I pray that Beki's little one out-grows her allergy.

    And, yes, sacrifice is an amazing thing!
