I Am Still Here!

Baptist General Association of Virginia Convention started this morning in Hampton. It was so nice to see friends from churches in other parts of Virginia.

I saw a former teacher of mine at Leland Theological Seminary today. It was so nice to see him. The problem is he moved to Appomattox VA and he had heard that I passed away. Imagine my surprise. He couldn't remember where he heard it. Someone told him I had breast cancer and I died. He was totally shocked to see me. 

Needless to say, I am still here. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteo-Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Shingles, Peripheral Artery Disease, and a floater in my left eye. I have had 16 surgeries and Breast Cancer in my lifetime. What is next?

I could be the poster child for the Baby Boomer Generation. The problem for me, I do not look sick at all. Everything that is going on is considered an "invisible" illness. There are many people out there with similar problems. If someone looks fine, we assume they can do the things that we can do. Looks can be deceiving.

Stop Worrying About What You Can’t Control

On the other hand, just because someone is visibly handicapped, does not mean that they are unable to do most of the things that you can do, and they want to. Anyway, I guess that I am saying "Don't judge a book by it's cover."

Be kind to others, no matter what, you don't know what kind of trouble they are going through.

Look For The Silver Lining…In EVERYTHING

GOD IS GOOD, ALL THE TIME!


ALL THE TIME, GOD IS GOOD!
