Spring 2010

Well, I think spring is finally here with temps in the seventies today. I love springtime. It the time of year when after winter, new life is popping up everywhere around us. This has been an exceptionaly hard one for me. Cold weather makes me more spastic which makes my abilty to move that much harder. My speech has really deteriorated to where no one can understand what I am trying to say. My hand function isn't very good either. I have trouble with gripping things and holding on to stuff. I wish life wouldn't seem so cruel at times but that's not the way it is. Seems unfair that some people seem to go through this life unscathed from suffering and trials but I know God has a plan and purpose for each and everyone of us. I want to be like clay in his hands so he can mold and shape me to what he wants me to be. I know that each day I'm given, brings me one day closer to him.
"He doesn't treat us as our sin derserve, nor pay us back in full for our wrongs." Psalms 103:10

I hope like the spring season, I can experience new life, even when the physical part of me is fading.

Thanks for the thoughtful words. When you say these kind of things it carry's such meaning and truth. I have the privilege of seeing upclose someone (you) live out what he is saying, not just talking about it. I hope to be like you when I grow up! Never doubt that God is using you mightly despite/and even thro your afflictions. The temporary suffering here on earth will not compare to the reward waiting for you in eternity. It does not seem fair BUT God is just and you will be the victor!

Love you Brother,

Love you, George. I hate the winter, too. :)

You will get a brand new body some day. And so much more...
