we have hope

During this time my heart is being torn for my sister and her family. She and her husband Sean are very happily married, they have 4 little ones (2boys, 2girls) and they have 2 on the way, another boy and girl.

Sean was the working spouse, while April was going to school full time, to pursue a nursing degree. When all of a sudden he began experiencing nuerological numbing issues in his lower body. He is now hospitalized and has since been diagnosed with MS. He cannot walk or feel anything from his waist down. He was told on Saturday that he may never regain the strength, use of, or sensation in his legs again, he may be in a wheelchair for the rest of his life.
He still seems pretty determined that he will recover... Please say a prayer for him and his family - The Ervins. Pray for a full recovery, we have faith that miracles can happen :)

Psalm 42:11
Why am I discouraged?
Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God!
I will praise him again—
my Savior and my God!

siddharth,
I write for numerous reasons:
I write as a means of therapy and process for myself. It can be a poem, creative writing or even journaling and since I have started my blog I have felt more refreshed and cleansed. I am able to be held accountable and I am learning to grow as a person, and through my trials and tribulations I hope to learn from them... By releasing my thoughts and feelings through words I feel as though I am processing it all, that I am re-experiencing my life to grow more healthy emotionally and spiritually.
With the hopes as well that my life is not lived in vain but that someone else will learn from my life, and my choices.
I think that the reason we are all here is to be here for one another, community, fellowship and friendships are the only thing that I will take with me when I die. So if I can share my life and touch one person, my blog will be worth it :)
I Checked out your blog, and I appreciate your intellect! Keep writing, peoples lives are changed by mere words...
Rebecca

That is so sad. I hope that he makes a full recovery. When God closes a door, he opens a window. Stay positive!
