Life and Love with Corban
Corban is eight years old and has hemiplegia. He enjoys riding his three-wheeler around the neighborhood. He's been a brave survivor of two brain surgeries to stop seizures. He loves life and has so much to share with us all. In this series of short stories, Corban's dad Brian, opens his heart and share his faith.
My wife likes watching those home improvement shows like "Design on a Dime", "Sensible Chic", "Trading Spaces" and others.
So one Saturday I'm mudding the guest bathroom walls with joint compound while
Darlene Zschech and the Hillsong crew join me on the cd player.
I'm in there singing away when Corban wakes up from an afternoon nap, hears his dad singing and tracks me down.
The door knob twists but he finds it locked so he knocks on the door, still not the response he is wanting so he pounds on the door and begins crying for me to open up.
With a bucket of joint compound in one hand and a finishing trowel in the other I shout back, "It's not ready yet. I'll let you know when."
You see mom has plans for this to be his bathroom. But it's not the room he wants so much as what is inside of it.
