There is a sense in which everything important that I know

I know because of Lew and Judson:


Because of my sons I know pain and joy

I know the fellowship of suffering

and the comradeship of advocacy

I know to appreciate typical childhood development

I know that health and healing are gifts

And that in this life they are most often what we are given

I know the comfort of God

I know the stresses of family life

I know to hold tightly to God

when life throws a right-angled turn

I know how to comfort others

I know heaven is real and that Lew is waiting
