A Recommendation

For those over the age of 40 like myself, you may consider visiting Marvin Wilson's site daily. It is titled The Old Silly's Free Spirit Blog and it is a winner. I love it!

Serving God, Even with a Disability

It's no secret that I am mute. Like anyone with a major disability, there are times when I want to cry and feel sorry for myself because I miss so many things. There is nothing on earth like words, especially heartfelt ones. I often wish I could say so much to my children, but my emails, notes, letters will have to do.

I've met many disabled Christians and I have to speak for us all - we are happily serving God, disabilities and all, and we don't need pity or even sympathy. We only need be reminded that no matter how bad things are, they could be worse. Praise God that I can hear and see and walk.

Surprise Surprise

I had the surpise of my life. The last few days I've stayed in because I've been having some back spasms. My daughter thinks it is because of all the time I spend in front of the computer.

Yesterday, my children showed up with a new computer, a wonderfully expensive chair for posture and a better desk. I couldn't believe it! I know they couldn't afford to do all that, but they did it for me. I feel like the most blessed woman in the world to have such thoughtful and sacrificing children. I adore my new chair too.

What's New?

It's a new year and for some it holds the hope of new things. What's new in your life? Have you quit smoking? Quit drinking? Quit lying? Started dieting? Started reading your Bible? Left bad influences behind? Forgiven old grudges? Started up new relationships?

This is the time when people try to instantly change things in their lives, but change isn't instant. It's a process. What's new for me? New mercies that come every morning for another chance to please God. Didn't make any resolutions, but did decide that this year I'd be more dedicated to the local nursing home to help the elderly with supplying things they often lack who don't have family.

It's good to improve you, but why not make this year about someone else? What's new for you? Will you learn to be selfless?
