I hope you are having a blessed week. I know
that some days it can all seem like more than
you can bear. I hope you've been able to find
some support at our social network, The Sunroom,
. The people in there are the kindest, most compassionate,
caring individuals you may ever find on this earth
and I am not just saying that.
One of our readers, Linda D. recently posted
this scripture on Facebook as one of her favorites.
We all know this scripture, but the wording from
The Message version of the Bibles was very
comforting and personal.
"I was given the gift of a handicap to
keep me in constant touch with my limitations.
Satan's angel did his best to get me down; what
he in fact did was push me to my knees. No danger
then of walking around high and mighty! At first
I didn't think of it as a gift, and begged God
to remove it. Three times I did that, and then
he told me, My grace is enough; it's all you
need. My strength comes into its own in your
weakness. Once I heard that, I was glad to let
it happen. I quit focusing on the handicap and
began appreciating the gift. It was a case of
Christ's strength moving in on my weakness.
Now I take limitations in stride, and with good
cheer, these limitations that cut me down to
sizeabuse, accidents, opposition, bad
breaks. I just let Christ take over! And so
the weaker I get, the stronger I become. --2
As I have mentioned before, being involved in
so many areas of health and illness web sites,
twitters, etc. online I come across some great
web sites. Here is superb site I wanted to make
sure you were aware of!

health information from both patients and professionals,
