Being Christian is more important than doing what Christians do– that’s what I realized today.
It’s 12 : 13 PM on day 1182 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to pray, brush my teeth, read 1 Chronicles 15, publish my Disability of the Day feature, publish my Kid of the Week feature, feed myself All Bran Flakes for breakfast, go to church and listen to music.
This morning I really wanted to go to church and we did but not before going back and forth about whether or not we should go before we made our final decision to go I told my mother it’s okay even if we don’t go because I realized doing what was easier for my mother would be more Christian than going to church. Are you Christian or do you just do what Christians do?
See the intention behind the words and actions of others – that’s what I keep learning.
It’s 1 : 29 PM on day 1103 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself All Bran Flakes for breakfast, pray, read 2 Samuel 6, publish my Disability of the Day feature, tweet about my campaign – I am not able anything to do much of anything today I feel awful it’s so unfair I eat right, I exercise and I’m still left feeling sluggish meanwhile others eat all sorts of junk and they are still fine the next day – and go pick up my new wheelchair – it’s like my old one except this one’s lighter.
Two days ago something happened which made me realize I should take the words and actions of others as they were intended when people say stuff like you are in my prayers my first thought is something along the lines of just because I’m in a wheelchair doesn’t mean I need extra prayers meanwhile I’m sure they were just trying to be nice I hate the fact that I tend to add layers to the words and actions of others hopefully I’ll grow out of it someday. Do you try to see the intention behind the words and actions of others or do you always take things the wrong way?
Actions have consequences– that’s what Cerebral Palsy keeps teaching me.
It’s 12 : 10 PM on day 1084 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, read 1 Samuel 18, pray, publish my Disability of the Day feature, feed myself boiled egg and Bran Flakes for breakfast, publish my Kid of the Week feature, tweet and Facebook about my campaign -nobody donated so far today only $80 to go
Today I realized once again that Cerebral Palsy is a blessing in disguise if I don’t exercise my legs become stiff if I don’t eat right I feel bloated and sluggish in a roundabout way Cerebral Palsy has taught me actions have consequences. Do you go through life acting as though your actions don’t have consequences?
