Our Outer Shell!

When we meet people, we tend to judge them by how they look. We are all guilty of this. When someone is in a wheelchair, we might make presumptions that are completely wrong! The view we see on the outside is not what that person is on the inside. It goes back to that old saying…never judge a book by its cover!


I Am Speciable!

I really am quite speciable
I do think you’d agree,
If only you were able to
Look past what your eyes see!

I’m more than just the obvious
The person in this chair,
I’m full of hope and dreams and love
Quite worthy of your stare!

You only see the physical
My shell that’s not quite right,
But in this shell is someone great
Who has a special light!

When God decided to make me
He knew that I’d be fine,
The outside would not matter much
From inside I would shine!

I’m here to teach you all to love
And not hate with your heart,
I think God made me speciable
To help you learn this part!

He wants for us to not just see
The outside of a book,
So if you want to know me well
You’ll need a deeper look!

The inner me is full of love
My soul is full of care,
If you would spend some time with me
With you, these gifts I’d share!

I really am quite speciable
Look with your heart and see,
That even though my covers torn
There’s beauty within me!

  1. Absolutely beautiful! I have the privilege of working with children who are wheelchair bound. Some are quiet and some will talk your leg off. They are like anybody else with their own unique personalities.
